Love Is the Hardest Lesson: A Memoir

Regular price $10.00 $0.00

The author gives us a vivid account of her experience working in a state psychiatric institution as the young wife of a conscientious objector during World War II. She portrays the insulated and dehumanizing world of Sykesville where patients lost their individuality and caregivers behaved abusively from their own fear. Margaret's personal story movingly illustrates the transformative power of love which casts out fear and restores to others their sense of humanity." —Lee Junker
