This is an incredible true story of healing and rehabilitation after a devastating Stroke. Marilyn Carpenter was an active, vivacious person and successful professional educator until she had a stroke. She tells the story of her recovery in her own ineffable way, explaining her journey back to mental and physical health and describing in detail the emotional roller coaster that brought her back to living as a whole, functional, fulfilled person again.

Excerpt from Introduction:
A Feather In My Wing is optimistic, filled with hope for the reader. While it validates just how devastating losses such as a stroke can be, it also challenges the reader to do more than accept the role of victimhood or survivorship, and to find the healing, love, and forgiveness that will give us the presence of mind to experience joy when it is possible. The amazing thing is that, once we relinquish the "happily ever after myths" from childhood, life can be what it is-times of suffering, times for healing, and times to celebrate and appreciate the fullness of life.
