Description
This is an inspiring story of the author's adjustment to total blindness. It is the autobiography of a woman who faced and conquered a sightless world with strength, courage and a profound, yet beautifully simple faith in God. Life for her became a re-education; of relearning how to do the simplest everyday tasks, cooking, ironing, filling a cup and getting dressed. 'All my life I have had bad eyesight. This time the battle to save my sight lasted eighteen weeks and in the end I lost out. In spite of the best efforts of skilled surgeons and careful nurses, I became blind.' Thus Borghild Dahl begins the inspiring story of her adjustment to total blindness. She was inspired to write this book after she spoke to a group of students about books and writing. In the question period that followed the boys and girls ignored the subject of the lecture, but were keenly interested to know how she managed to cope with the day-to-day problems of living now that she was blind. Finding My Way is her answer. Young people admire courage, and they will find true inspiration in this autobiography of a woman who faced and conquered a sightless world with strength, courage and a profound, yet beautifully simple, faith in God.
