Vivian has lived an extraordinary life, despite the fact that she has been confined to an iron lung since contracting polio as a child. Her condition means she requires constant monitoring, and the close-knit community joins together to give her care and help keep her alive. As their town buckles under the weight of the Great Recession, Holly and Vivian, two very different women both touched by pain, forge an unlikely alliance that may just offer each an unexpected salvation.

A very depressing book.
Holly, a recent widow with two small boys, struggles financially through the entire book. Holly is one of many in a community who helps care for Vivian, a polio victim restricted to an iron lung.
The book trudged on and on with one piece of bad news after another. The ending, which is meant to make reading the book worth the time, didn't.

Not sure if this was based on a true story or not
Either way it is a fabulously written book. I will admit, I would be like a lot of people and wouldn't be able to handle seeing Viv on a daily basis. The strength in these women amaze me! Will definitely read more from this author!
