Maggie Mc Leod, 28, recovered from her traumatic brain injury as a teenager, and is now out of money, short on skills, and out of options-- far from her hometown of Maple Grove, Oregon.

Now she has to go back home to face a belated legacy from a father she dosen't remember and answer a request from the doctor she owes her life to.

Sarah, 17, is in the hospital facing an uncertain recovery. A foster child in the throes of rebellion, Sarah desperately wants someone to understand what it's like to strive to be a person whom you don't remember being. Maggie can give that, if she can overcome her fear of being seen as wounded.

Maggie deals with another facet of brain function in the descent of her childhood friend becoming institutionalized due to bipolarism. She also comes to terms with the ability to love and be loved. Through thhe story, she has to learn to trust or go no further in her personal development.

Learning Life Again explores the fascinating way people adapt to challenges and how we can learn to heal.


Excerpt

"I feel like the daughter of, Frank... Franken-st, the monster." Sarah gave up and looked to Maggie for help.
"I get it. Shelley's Frankenstein, the book. Well, you remeber who Frankenstein was. That's a start." Maggie wantedto bolster the tiny confidence and give Sarah some time. "You don't have to talk to me. I can understand how you might not want to. But, now that I've given you my sob story, do you want to ask me anything?"
Sarah looked away before answering. "How... bad were you?" It took a few seconds to get the question out and her speech was thick and unclear.
