What if you woke up tomorrow and couldn't remember anything about your past, who the people around you are, the place you are residing, and how exactly you should look?
There are no answers as to the cause of this sudden memory loss, although similar symptoms occur from head injuries. There is no cure, at least as far as anyone knows.
Suddenly you are rebuilding your life, learning to do things over, learning to trust yourself and others around you, learning to be comfortable in your own skin. Becoming someone you and other people like better than your previous self. Experiencing "firsts," because you don't remember having been through them before.
What would you do if this happened to you?
Chautona Havig has written a truly wonderful novel about a woman who goes through the above. She writes of her struggles and accomplishments. She writes of her worries and gains. Her trust issues as they falter and improve. She writes of the story of Ella...a strong and magnificent character who brings this novel alive, as do the other individual in the novel.
There is a psychiatrist that may give you the creeps (I disliked her from word one and didn't trust her). A church leader who has great guidance and suggestions, while also faltering at times given the odd situation. Friends and neighbors who want to be supportive but are also curious. And of course a husband and children who have to walk this new path with her, while hopefully not losing her.
I loved Ella and the joy she brought to her family and how she made her own way little by little. I loved that she had her own style and way of looking at things. The joy she brought to her family, even when she had personal doubts. I loved that she found her own way...back to herself, her family, her friends, and her support system. She is an honest and truthful character. The others are realistic and believable. The situation one plausible, albeit potentially not in this odd situation. It is just a truly wonderful, engaging, and interesting novel.
Honestly, I believe both men and women would find "None So Blind" a great read. I know I sure did, both times I read it.
Although, questions arise about whether Dani/Ella is faking her memory loss or not intrigues me. I can not fathom the idea of faking such a thing. I can not imagine someone going to such drastic measures and being able to fool everybody around her.
When Dani wakes up and comes “home”, I have to admire the way her husband handles everything. If Ella is faking because she so disliked what her life had become, I find that to be incredible. Her children, although disoriented by their mother’s memory loss, show amazing resiliency and adaptability in dealing with the changes in their home and in their mother in general.
Another plot twist arises when Ella finds a large sum of money hidden in her garage. This twist is mentioned briefly but is never resolved. I am really interested to see if this situation is resolved in the coming book(s) in the series.
The reliance on their Christian faith clearly helps the family endure the changes the memory loss brings. Also, I loved the contrast between Dani as a Christian before the memory loss to Ella after the memory loss. Dani takes avid notes and almost in some ways seems selfish and self-centered, although she clearly loves her family. Ella, on the other hand, appears to find other things to capture her attention and interest including improving her appearance.
The steps Dani/Ella’s husband is willing to go for her demonstrate true Christian love. He gives her space and time she needs to come to terms with all that has happened and their relationship. The guidance and counsel of their pastor and his wife again show true Christian values.
I truly enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to my family and friends.
As expected, I did have a hard time getting into the book, but once I did, I struggled to put it down. I folded laundry while reading it, did a puzzle with my littlest while reading it, and was up way too late several nights in a row with it. Mrs. Havig knows how to weave a tale! What I loved the most about the book was the mystery of it all - how did this happen and how could it possibly resolve well? (And a few other questions I won't share because of spoilers.) What I didn't love about the book was that very little of the mystery was resolved. By the end, I realized that the book was supposed to be more about the journey than the mystery, but I had been on the wrong "train," and I wasn't really that into the journey.
I know from experience that Mrs. Havig is very responsive to reader questions so I zipped her a message asking if we would ever have any resolution to the mystery. As I expected, she responded quickly and graciously that my questions will be answered.... in book 3!!! I can hardly stand it!!!
Well, at least book 2 is coming out later this summer... Stay tuned for my review of Will Not See at the end of August because now that I've started this series, there will be no holding me back!
