I also enjoyed how vividly she describes Bolivia, both through her own eyes, and through her mother's memories. When I read about her family's arrival to St. Louis, especially the culture shock and language barriers, it occurred to me that she described these things in such a way that *anyone* would be able to understand them. For example, I enjoyed the line about the new language sounding like indecipherable noises, especially as it is clear that this is a language the author now masters.
There were so many things I loved about this book, and so many lines that stood out to me... as I was reading, there were many times where I either laughed out loud, gasped in shock or welled up - I think any reader would do the same.
Hearing all of the things the author went through, especially in her experience of gradually losing her sight, it is hard for anyone to imagine, yet somehow she puts the reader in her shoes, and we can feel her emotions - shocked, horrified, fearful, angry, hopeful, determined, saddened, grateful, happy - all of these. What a brave woman she is, and an inspiration to everyone.
It is obvious that Jan is a natural communicator (no wonder she excels as an interpreter), someone who wants to reach out with her heart and share with others whatever she can to help so that they may draw on her experience. But part of her success in communicating is that she has something important to express. I thank her for being willing to share her story so candidly, and with such grace, for others to hear.
I look forward to reading more from this writer.
where the darkest episodes of intense pain are felt. Often, the outward appearance is not an accurate reflection of the intimate emotions that play out in the privacy of one’s heart."
Janet did just that. I walked into the bedroom of her heart and listened to her cries, her innermost thoughts but more importantly, her joy and her triumphs. Janet endured more in her life than most people ever have to go through, losing her eyesight as a young mother, her marriage falling apart, her young son's death and then watching her son's killer be exonerated. I cannot begin to imagine all the pain each of these situations inflicted on her.
But it is not the pain that you will remember about Janet's story. It is her attitude, her rejoicing and her relationship with her Heavenly Father. If you need to be encouraged or inspired, this book is for you. You will not be able to put it down.
Although blind, Janet teaches us how to SEE with our hearts.
