An uplifting novel inspired by a true story, by the New York Times??bestselling author of Lisette's List and The Girl in Hyacinth Blue.

Jean Treadway is a young, cultured New England woman whose every material need is supplied by wealthy, overprotective parents. Through an arranged correspondence, she meets Forrest Holly??a dirt-poor Southern California rancher whose spiritual foundation turns despair into purpose.

As different as they are in background, they share two things: they are both blind, and they are both determined to live an active, normal life and raise a family.

While Jean was among the first women to use a Seeing Eye dog on urban streets in the late 1930s, Forrest used a seeing-eye bull, and his horses, to guide him on the ranch in the 1940s. As they discover each other through letters that have to be read to them, his earnestness and folksy humor win her heart, leading to an extraordinary life together, shared by their four children

I obtained this book for my kindle through the library. I had no idea what it was about. I was pleasantly surprised. It was a great story about what it is like to be blind and raising a family. We take so many things for granted in this life. Many ordinary things posed great challenges for this family. This was a good look at what it is like to live with a disabiltiy. I found it both interesting and entertaining. Very different than her other books. ( )

An interesting fictionalized account of a family member of the author - an impressive story of a young woman who loses her sight at a young age but not her determination to define an independent life of her own at a time when most women were expected to be protected. ( )

Their stuborness drove me crazy, but their accomplishments were amazing. The youngest child was very lucky to have the woman neighbor to give him attention. Their children were no different from any other; though the book tried to make them out to be bratty. ( )
