Summary

"One day in November 1965, Norman Morrison, a devout Quaker, immolated himself on the steps of the Pentagon as a protest against the Vietnam War. It was a terrible and defining moment of an era, one that marked the lives of many people - not least Morrison's own family, who were left struggling to understand his action and to pick up the pieces of their lives. In this memoir his widow, Anne Morrison Welsh, recounts Norman's story as well as her own journey, over a lifetime, to find acceptance, forgiveness, and recovery from life's wounds."--BOOK JACKET.
