About the Author Mary Morgan, now 65 years old has been married for 46 years with 5 children and 11 grandchildren. She has lived on the Outer Banks of North Carolina for over 30 years and is a retired Real Estate sales manager. Six years ago she suffered a severe stroke and is paralyzed on her left side.
She now spends her time speaking to caregiver and independent living meetings. She says " Heaven tempted me during stroke but sure has a lot of competition to top my life on this planet". Book Reviews "Like A Bolt" has been the supreme piece of literature on the subject that I had yet to read. I have been given a lot of "professional" literature on stroke and help for caregivers, none of them gave me anything I really needed and wanted. In fact, "Like A Bolt" as I see it, is the definitive work on the experience of stroke and in some real sense turned me around...Charles McCoy, Va.Beach,Va.
