The house was spacious and shabby and it had that air of pitiful loneliness peculiar to neglected houses built almost a century ago. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book! Aug. 17 2004
Format:Hardcover
I was given these books as gifts when I was 16 (24 years ago)because I also have Cerebral Palsy. My mother read them when I was first diagnosed (18 months old) and thought they would be helpful to me. Not only were they helpful, they were inspiring! I am only mildly afflicted with CP and I haven't been through 1/4 of what Karen went through. I read these books yearly and have several copies of the paperbacks as well as a hardcover copy of both. They used to be a reading requirement in high schools - its too bad they are no longer. Highly recommended to anyone who loves to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Info on the Killilea Family March 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:Library Binding
If you are interested in information about what happened to Karen and her family over the years, a Yahoo group, Killilea_fans, has done a lot of research which you can find on Yahoo. You need to go to [...] then search for the group killilea_fans. You will need to sign up on Yahoo if you haven't already. Anyone can join the group.
Be sure and check out the Killilea_fans Description page, as it has a link to "Pertinent Postings" (the most important posts with family info) and a "Timeline" of the Killilea Family. The group has also posted a number of photos of the family as well as newspaper articles.
Marie and Jimmy did not divorce, however, "Little" Marie and her husband Ron Smiley did. On a very sad note, on 7/31/68, Gloria and Russ's two daughters, Mary De Lourdes and Evely Ann, as well as "Little" Marie's daughter, Michelle Smiley, died in a fire in the Lea's house. Gloria and her two sons escaped. Marie Killilea died on 10/23/91, Jimmy died on 7/25/94. Gloria died on 11/28/01 and Russ died on 2/15/02.

5.0 out of 5 stars Update of the Killilea family Dec 14 2002
By A Customer
Format:Library Binding
If you go to Yahoo and set up an account, you can join their groups, one of them being a group interested in the Killilea family. There are pictures of the entire family, plus house, dogs, friends, etc. There are also a lot of updates on what happened to all the family members (except Rory) since the books ended. One of the members even crashed Russell Lea's funeral to get a glimpse of Karen.

5.0 out of 5 stars FOLLOW UP ON THE KILLILEAS April 14 2002
Format:Library Binding
TO THE WRITER FROM GEORGIA - ALL OF US DO NOT KNOW WHAT YAHOOGROUPS ARE - AND WHAT IS THE KILLILEA BOOK CLUB - DETAILS PLEASE.
I DID LEARN THAT GLORIA'S DAUGHTERS DIED IN A HOUSE FIRE IN 1968 ALONG WITH ONE OF "LITTLE" MARIE'S DAUGHTERS. PERHAPS SO MUCH TRAGEDY IN THE LATER YEARS - MARIE'S LUNG CANCER, JIMMY'S ALSHEIMER'S, THE DEATHS OF THESE THREE CHILDREN, ETC - IS THE REASON THERE IS NO OTHER BOOK
IT ALSO SEEMS THAT IT IS LITTLE MARIE THAT GOT DIVORCED NOT MARIE AND JIMMY

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring book! Feb. 14 2002
Format:Library Binding
I have bought Karen and With Love from Karen books when I was in high school in 1984. I have always wondered where Karen is (if she's still living) and how she is doing. Guess what? I still have her name on my calendar as she will be 62 years old this year (2002) on August 18th, in case, you are curious.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story of deep faith Oct. 19 2001
Format:Library Binding
I am one of the many who read both "Karen" and "With Love from Karen" as a teenager (20 years ago). I loved them as they were uplifting and rich in details as well as inspirational. I have bought the pair again as I wore out the originals.
I would also like to know what happened to the members of the family? We were left hanging so if anyone has any info or any clue how to get any, please let me know. If I could contact any of the family members, I could write an update for all of us that feel we know them...

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational Oct. 8 2001
Format:Library Binding
I thought my sister and I were the only ones who remembered these books! I am thrilled that it touched others as it touched me.
I first read these books about 27 years ago, when I was 11 years old. I discovered them in the library of my very small Catholic grade school. I was so deeply touched by these books, and Marie Killilea's deep faith and strength still impress upon me today, even though I haven't opened those books since 1974 or 1975.
As the mother of a disabled son (my son is autistic), I have often thought of Marie Killilea and remembered her and her family's strength, and wondered how in the world they were able to be so strong at a time when most disabled children were sent to institutions. There were no support groups then, and very little medical information about cp or brain injuries were available -- none, in fact, to laypersons. It's amazing that they were able to find the immense amount of support from their families and friends in the 40s and 50s.
I am so glad that these books are in print again. I plan to buy them for my 13 year old niece, and I hope that she is inspired by them as I was.
