Sometimes the best way to tell a story is to take you there. A union carpenter holds her own on the job until she gets hurt. While recovering from an injury, she digs into a mysterious medical situation from her past and old issues resurface. She then learns that she is part of a community who has been systemically duped for not measuring up.
Esther is a semi-retired carpenter, and medical sociologist with a background in public health data management. Her essays have been published internationally, and she has appeared in a number of documentaries. She currently works as a consultant on federal and local levels, hoping to make her experience and her community less “unheard of.” This memoir courageously breaks the silence about one of our best kept medical secrets.
