The life of a vibrant, creative woman, fifty-seven years young, is dramatically changed by a major hemorrhagic stroke during a community bus trip through the Pennsylvania Highlands region. Her foray into the unknown wilderness of brain trauma, sudden powerlessness, and fight against the odds of recovery are an inspiration to survivors of stroke or other brain trauma, as well as to their caretakers. Stroke Story traces a woman’s transformational journey from landscape gardener, craftsperson and volunteer, into helplessness, but with hard work and expert care, a return to hope and renewal of a creative life.
