Little Willie of Yesteryear attends the University of Kentucky.
Confined to using crutches or a wheelchair, he suffers the
hardships, prejudices, and, sometimes, abuse that is imposed on the
disabled. Depression and loneliness bring back memories of
childhood. As the Roaring Twenties reach their summit and the
country plunges headlong into the Great Depression, Willie searches
for meaning and purpose in his life. He finds a mission: writing to
help others who are handicapped. When he meets Lucy (also in a
wheelchair), an old-fashioned love story unfolds, showing customs
of the era. Historical facts of Kentucky and the nation, interwoven
with daily living, give background and realism. As the nation
hovers on the brink of WWII, the story follows the young couple
through the early years of marriage with emphasis on the faith that
gives courage and comfort in the face of life's difficulties.
