I bought this book and read it all with in the same week of purchase, it was hard to put down. Each chapter painting a picture
The author has a straight forward honest account of her life of addiction.
As she shares her challenges after getting clean and facing new found blindness, a picture was indeed painted as I read her journey through addiction and beyond.
This book has indeed opened my eyes to struggles I was unaware of a culture is exposed in a way far different than I myself had envisioned it.
A must read human experience covering many facets from self mutilation, addiction, prostitution, prison from sighted to blind.
I was extremely moved when the author was faced with a choice of saving her eye sight or the life of her unborn child, then the pain as she was unable to parent the child instead of terminating the pregnancy, she bravely with love chose adoption
As I read this book, I was moved through a journey of darkness and despair to love and hope.
I look forward to reading more books by this new author.
