Karen and With Love from Karen - Marie Killilea - 1960s Dell paperbacks
Pair of vintage Dell paperbacks, "Karen" (6th Dell printing, 1964) and "With Love from Karen" (2nd Dell printing, 1965) by Marie Killilea. True story of a girl born prematurely who developed cerebral palsy, written by her mother. Despite medical professionals telling them to institutionalize her and walk away, they learned to give her physical therapy at home. A radical concept at the time this was written in the 1950s.
(Per Wikipedia, Karen is currently a receptionist at a Catholic retreat house.)
