Angela’s blue Subaru spins in an icy, Indiana intersection. She and her mother are not breathing. Hours later, she wakes in the ICU. Her arm paralyzed, her mother dead.
Police determine she ran the stop sign, and she believes it. She folds herself inward, unable to face either loss. Mustering the fight, she straps her arm to her chest and resolves to survive. Creased forehead. Locked jaw. She gathers bones and muscles, rejecting defeat. Angela returns to Aerospace classes and spends the summer finishing her work at NASA. Graduating, she lands a job a thousand miles from everything she knows.
Guilt, fear and pain eclipse who she is. She buries the tiny seed, planted by her mother, deep under the pain. Hiding a thousand miles away, Angela doubts her ability to love or be loved. But will she live?Will she learn to fly?
