Overview

"Since birth I have been totally blind. Yet I have never felt cheated ofthe rich beauty the world has to give. For as long as I can remember I have reached out to the world around me, giving and taking all the goods things life has to offer."

These words come from an extraordinary woman with a most inspiring story to tell. In this heartwarming autobiography, Phyllis Campbell tells of her erly life on her parents' farm in Virgina, her education at a school for the blind and deaf, her struggle to remain independent with a career of her own, and her fulfilling marriage to a sighted man. Along the way we meet kind and loving people, both family and friends, but most unforgettable are the wonderful animals whose loyalty and trust taught her the magic of unconditional love.

From Mouser, the patient kitten of a blind child, to Lear, the guide dog who becomes her most devoted protector, to Lady Gray, the stray cat who now rules her home with an iron paw, Phyllis Campbell's personal and humorous portraits of the beloved creatures who helped shape her life will remind readers that even in the darkest times, the love of those around us sheds an everlasting light.
