Sarah Ruhl has just survived a high-risk pregnancy when she discovers the left side of her face is paralyzed. She is assured that 90 percent of Bell's palsy patients experience a full recovery. But Sarah is in the unlucky ten percent. So Ruhl begins a decade-long search for a cure while grappling with the reality of her new face. In a series of meditations, Ruhl chronicles her journey. She explores the struggle of a body yearning to match its inner landscape, the pain of postpartum depression, being a playwright and working mom to three small children, and the desire for a resilient spiritual life in the face of illness.
