    About the Novel:
    This story is an emotional and vivid portrayal of the relationship between a child and her teacher. Helen Keller is rendered deaf and blind at an early age, and by the time she is six years old, her behavior becomes completely unmanageable. In desperation, her parents send for teacher Annie Sullivan to bring some discipline into the spoiled child's life. Helen and Annie become locked in a ferocious battle of wills, but Annie is determined to bring a sense of discipline into Helen's life. Annie teaches Helen words by constantly spelling them into Helen's palm. Although Helen can spell them back, she doesn't understand that these words actually represent things. At the water pump Annie spells "water" into Helen's hand and suddenly the miracle happens, Helen understands.
