I thought this was a powerful story of what people can do when God (and family) is on their side. The story of Ben Underwood is incredible!
I was so surprised when I had the opportunity to read and review Echoes of an Angel, the true story of Benjamin Underwood, the young man my friend had told me about those years ago! To say I was thrilled to know more about the story behind the boy with amazing echolocation skills would be an understatement.
From the very first page of Echoes of an Angel, I was touched. The story that Ben’s mother, Aquanetta Gordon, told was at once full of joy and heartbreak.
Born the fourth child of an unwed mother in California, Ben grew up in government housing on welfare, in a home filled with struggles, sadness, and great love.
When Ben was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma, a rapidly developing cancer, at the age of two, his life was changed forever. After chemotherapy and enucleation of both eyes, Ben began “clicking”. Much to his family’s surprise, Ben had the ability to use echolocation to do what sighted children do: run, climb trees, ride bikes, skateboard, and even surf!
I was deeply touched by Echoes of an Angel, and the powerful story it told, of how God never leaves us, but is faithful, working in every detail of our lives, no matter how dark or painful the moment we are in. However, I must admit that I was uncomfortable with a recurring dream described in the book that referenced a conversation with Ben following his death.Read more ›
Ben never used a cane-but he did ride a scooter, play video games, and did pretty much everything other children did. Ben used echolocation-'seeing' through the reflection of sound waves. He had a strong faith, and amazed everyone who heard of him. He appeared on numerous shows, including Oprah. Though unfortunately his life was cut short by cancer, he left quite a mark on this world.
Echoes of an Angel was a wonderful reminder of putting our faith in God and watching what He can do! The book contains pictures and a Discussion Guide. I received a copy of the book free from Tyndale House in exchange for my review.
