With all due respect to Mrs. Rothschild who is living her life very well despite being blind, (and who is apparently a very dynamic speaker,) this book just fell flat as far as I was concerned. She seemed a bit Pollyanna-ish about the whole business, used old illustrations, didn’t really say anything new (or anything old in a new way), and could have benefited from a bit of editing. She has a cute sense of humor that came out occasionally, and I enjoyed a couple of laughs, but felt she underused that talent in her writing. I’m afraid the book reminded me why it is that I generally do not like to read devotional type books that are aimed specifically at women.

Publisher’s Summary:
At the age of fifteen, Jennifer Rothschild confronted two unshakable realities: Blindness is inevitable … and God is enough. Now this popular author, speaker, and recording artist offers poignant lessons that illuminate a path to freedom and fulfillment. With warmth, humor, and insight,Jennifer shares the guiding principles she walks by — and shows you how to walk forward by faith into God’s marvelous light.
