A hopeful and inspiring true story
3 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

Margarete was born physically-challenged. Yet that did not deter her from making the most out of her life. With the support of her brother, Fritz who always stood by her side, she overcame all odds that life threw at her. From her childhood days, she was full of optimism and faith.

Her strength and creativity made it possible to achieve things that were otherwise impossible in those days of mid-18th century. Her achievements and determination proved her skeptics wrong, as a woman and a person who was physically-challenged. The meeting with the possible man of her life brought more changes to her and those around her.

One thing led to another, her invention of stuffed toys have since then became an ageless passion for the young and those young-at-heart.
