The Brotherhood of Silence gives voice to the recollections of a woman who suffers debilitating injuries in an accident and then faces working through how to live with a disability and how to pursue... More > doggedly the resolution of a medical malpractice lawsuit that took nine years to settle.

As Margaret Holland notes, “I believe everything happens for a reason. And if we look hard enough, we can always find the good that comes from it.”< Less
