xA Embry Burrus
Growing up as the sibling of someone with Down syndrome, author Embry Burrus was never really aware of her sister Margaret's disability. While writing down childhood memories to preserve Margaret's story for future generations, Burrus gained some startling insights into her parents' lives, and most unexpectedly into her own life. With humor and candor, Burrus examines how her sister has impacted, and continues to impact, those who have been fortunate enough to get to know Margaret. According to Burrus, "Margaret's heart knows no judgment, no deceit, and no hatred. She is a beautiful, perfect example of all that is good in this world." The world could certainly benefit from more of that.
