The moving and inspirational memoir of how a beautiful chocolate Labrador transformed the life of a determined and passionate young woman
A tale of the unique bond between a girl and the dog who gave her sight, this story proves that miracles do happen. As a girl, Sheila never let her gradual descent into blindness prevent her from trying to do everything a sighted person could do. Then at 17, unable to see to find her way around the house she grew up in, she found herself dreading her future in an "ever darkening vacuum." But then the remarkable Emma enters her life, and Sheila begins a journey that brings her the independence, love, and happiness she never dreamed possible. Set in the 1960s, this ultimate dog story is a fascinating insight into the life of a young teenage girl and the black Lab who gives her a new lease on life.
