Synopsis

FROM THE INTERNATIONALLY PUBLISHED MEMOIR:

Too ambitious for her small Illinois town, Iris is determined to see the world with Washington, DC as the first stop. Her plans are curtailed when she marries a handsome young soldier and though apart for long stretches by WWII, they have two boys. Tragically widowed and back home, her younger, Gray, in braces from polio, Iris prepares herself for the challenges ahead.

Through their exhausting nightly exercises, Iris teaches Gray of the power of faith, and of words. She tantalizes him of the world outside waiting, the world she was unable to see.

After graduation in journalism, Gray accepts a reporting job in Sydney, Australia.

Both their adventures begin, and life eventually comes full circle for Iris.
