Overview
Annie Sullivan was little more than a half-blind orphan with a fiery tongue when she arrived at Ivy Green in 1887. Desperate for work, she d taken on a seemingly impossible job teaching a child who was deaf, blind, and as ferocious as any wild animal. But if anyone was a match for Helen Keller, it was the girl who d been nicknamed Miss Spitfire. In her efforts to reach Helen s mind, Annie lost teeth to the girl s raging blows, but she never lost faith in her ability to triumph. Told in first person, Annie Sullivan s past, her brazen determination, and her connection to the girl who would call her Teacher are vividly depicted in this powerful novel."
