The lending library is temporarily closed.

This is the first book to tell the story of Williams syndrome and the extraordinary musicality of many of the people who have it. Interweaving science and the personal in a compelling narrative, author Teri Sforza follows the quest of biochemistry professor Howard Lenhoff to help his handicapped daughter, Gloria. From his discovery of Gloria’s outstanding vocal talent and innate musical gifts, Lenhoff becomes convinced that people with her disorder have an unusual capacity for learning music, despite their profound mental disabilities. Thanks to Howard Lenhoff’s single-minded determination and love for his daughter, he succeeds in helping his daughter beyond his wildest dreams.
