Courage and determination personified.
Dorothea Dix could have frittered away her life and fortune on herself, but chose instead to use both resources to help the unlovely, unwanted people of society - the mentally ill. Her long life is a testament to selfless service - very inspiring!
Hard to choose one favorite scene out of the 11 lives this book describes, because each story contains an inspiring hero.
The narration flows nicely with the musical backgrounds - helps to enhance the stories.
