Riding the Gold Curve.

When Abby, the main character in this novel, is first diagnosed with MS, she is a young divorced mother working as a public health nurse in Texas. Twenty-five years later when the novel ends, she is starting a new life as a health educator in North Carolina. The years between are a mix of despair and triumph as Abby fights for survival and independence.

Author Faye Morgan always said that only two things stood between her and her dream of becoming a doctor: chemistry class and multiple sclerosis. She learned enough chemistry to become a registered nurse, and while working as a public health nurse she was diagnosed with MS. Her novel and her life are both a tribute to the human spirit.
