At first glance you would never know, other than the thick glass she wears, that Elie Keim was near blind. She desires to be as independent as her twin sister and her brother. They both have found their soul mates but if her family has anything to do with it she will become the blind alt madeal that will be forever dependent on her family. What the family isn't aware of is Elsie prays for a life with her own home, husband and children. She dares not discuss this with anyone. Until Landon Troyer, a new neighbor, starts helping out around the family farm and making a point to seek out Elsie to strike up a conversation with her causing her family to become even more protective of Elsie. She fears if Landon finds out about her eye disease he will turn his attention away from her,even if he was a kind and considerate man.
The author writes about a sensitive subject that most do not want to think about and that is a disability. She also points out through the character of Elsie that a disability does not have to weight you down thinking you are a oddity or not normal. What is not normal to someone may be normal for someone else. God has made us in his image and our soul is what shines through to others. Don't we all have some form of disability? I have to wear glasses and I suffer from migraines. I could go on and on. So look past ones disabilities and find out who the person really is don't be caught up with labels.it blinds ones judgement.
I say kudos to Shelley for writing this beautiful character into this series!
I highly recommend this book.
