Chronicles the saga of 88-year-old Hanson’s quest to write about his mother’s relationship with the Madonna of the early 20th century, despite having to surmount a series of devastating setbacks as lightning struck three times: a scoundrel stole his original manuscript, he became blind, and then he suffered a bout with cancer. The foreword relates the story of one man’s indomitable spirit.
