Strokeland by Lynette Lamb

A new memoir by LYNETTE LAMB

“I was carried along and couldn’t put it down…beautifully written, spare and lush…honest and caring and truthful.”

—Marge Ostroushko, public radio producer and co-creator of Giving Voice Chorus

When Lynette Lamb’s 45-year-old husband suffered a severe stroke, the future looked bleak for both of them, and for their grade school-age daughters.

In Strokeland, Lamb shares the unvarnished truth about how they lived through a devastating medical event and learned to live with a life-changing disability.

Ten percent of the cover price of each copy of Strokeland will be donated to MnCAN (Minnesota Connect Aphasia Now).
