The author has several misconceptions about the blind (including that they can't use paper money and must sleep in twin beds rather than with a partner because of the "disability".) It was stated that the blind have more library titles available than"normal" people do. They are normal. The story portrayed residents of rural areas in a very condesending manner,as well. I can't recommend this book.

I don't mean to be negative, but this book was definitely not one that I liked.

I have to agree with the other negative reviews. This author, through her main character, displays an appalling lack of knowledge of "disabled" people, and uses hateful language to describe them (such as the word "beggar"). She also refers to them as needing baths, as "miserable", and other such language. The description of the "battered woman" was also very prejudicial and revealed a complete and utter lack of empathy and understanding of women who have been in abusive situations (I can speak to this, as I have been). Her demeanor is condescending and downright snobby. I have no idea why this woman wrote this book, as it is not only disgustingly prejudiced but not even interesting, plot-wise. I cannot recommend this book to anyone, and would suggest the author actually open her eyes and spend some time with homeless people, people who have disabilities, and women who have been battered. To have the story suggest that police and "do-gooders" from local churches actually chase down survivors of domestic violence in order to help them in some way is absolutely ridiculous and not based in reality (in Nashville or anywhere else). The way the author portrays this main character is patronizing and smacks of someone who thinks she knows better how to live life than any of the characters she encounters. It makes me wonder how much of this character really reflects how the author thinks and feels about those less fortunate than she is - I suspect quite a bit. She needs to wise up and not write any more stories like this, perhaps concentrating on "how-to" books about her former profession. This book offended me deeply.

A 65 page free tale of a blind man and his guide dog living on the streets of Nashville with the help of the neighborhood he had wandered into. Then one day the local retiree witnesses a crime of theft on the blind man and thus begins the convoluted tale of tragedy and of abuse in a small southern community. No harsh language but there are adult situations.
