But what caused the death of Ruth's beloved father... who said "My little girl
is going to be a great artist someday", a death plunging her family into poverty
and motivating Ruth to fullfill those words?

In the final chapter, Journey into Two Legacies, the author, a medical doctor and surgeon, reveals how during her search for her mother's art, she found a trail of tragic deaths in the family, leading  to a genetic illness still seldom recognized by doctors today. 
A final chapter answering her mother's lifelong question about his death and hoping to enhance public and physician awareness of an illness so puzzling that many doctors today still fail to diagnose it, sentencing thousands to unnecessary suffering.
