In the late 70s, I think every young woman who attended church ... and a lot of young men... read this book by Joni Eareckson.
It told the story of how Joni became paralyzed in a diving accident and how she has created a new life for herself.
Recently she visited a local church for a speaking engagement. Of course Himself and I went. We were one of those young people who read that book. It was an enjoyable evening.
