Is Life Worth Living
This often heartbreaking account by Carol, whose son, Paul, was born retarded, is told with the honesty and sincerity necessary to portray the conflicting emotions faced by any family, and particularly a mother, in such circumstances. The feelings of guilt and failure, envy of other mothers with 'normal' children, and feelings of bitterness and inadequacy have to be resolved to enjoy a happy family life.
"Is Life Worth Living" from William Hurrell Mallock. English novelist and economics writer (1849-1923).
