Leila Blackwell suffers from keratitis, a condition that, coupled with prior eye problems, is slowly robbing her of her sight. Nevertheless, she stubbornly tries to maintain a "normal" lifestyle, often forsaking the companionship of her lover Cathy to act independently, as any fully sighted person might do. It's thus that she finds herself alone in a public rest room when a familiar male voice penetrates the silence, saying, "Don't be afraid, I won't hurt you."
Leila finds herself kidnapped and confined in a basement, slowly and steadily losing her site, as she is forced to engage in a batlle of wills with a man who beleives he is acting to save her soul. Through a series of harrowing escapes and confrontations with obstacles both real and self-imposed, Leila must try to survive to reach freedom, and her life, without losing her sanity in the process.

This book sounded soo good I could not pass it up. Even the cover was intriguing. So I bought it. As I read I was soo bored. I tried and tried to get into this book but I could only get 1/3 of the way through. I just couldn't make myself go on any more, It just wasn't going to get any better. I thought? What should I do w/this book? Give it to someone? NO, I didn't know anyone who would find this book interesting. I just tossed it in the garbage.
This was a pretty good book, and I recommend it. The author really did her research and very accurately portrayed religious fanatisicm, including some of its characteristic jargon. I was impressed. Parts of the book were eerily tormenting. If you like to be spooked, this book might do it for you. My only complaint is that I would have preferred a stronger ending. By the last page, I was left with the feeling and opinion that things were not completely resolved. But it is still a book worth reading. Hope you like it too.
