Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Josephine Caplin (Jo) was born into a world marred by maternal abandonment, alcoholism and traumatic epileptic seizures. In grade three, she was apprehended by child services and separated from her protective brother and her early caregivers, her father and uncle, who were kind men with drinking problems. Placed into many alienating and lonely foster homes, Jo would not see her family again until she was fourteen. Throughout her life, Jo fought symptoms of fetal alcohol syndrome, abuse by sadistic men and the collective horror of generations of ancestors forced into residential schools. Many believed Jo was destined to repeat the hopeless cycle, but she did not surrender to their despairing expectations: against all odds, Jo fought to create her own cycle full of hope and growth.
