Against all odds, Ellen never gives
up her belief that there is a place for her in the world, a home which
will satisfy all her longing for love, acceptance, and order. Her eventual success
in finding that home and courageously claiming it as her own is a testimony to
her unshakable faith in the possibility of good. She never loses that faith,
and she never loses her sense of humor.
