Making Shoes

Doctor Manette is a character in Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities that suffers from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).  He was traumatized because he spent 18 years in jail in the Bastille and was tortured constantly.  To cope with this disorder he resorts to making shoes.  PTSD is most often experienced by soldiers or medics from wars or battles.  Here are a few links describing PTSD.
