Review:

Born into high society on the eastern shore of Maryland, Jacquelin Gorman's family was said to "have everything." But scratch away the paint from this 1960s family portrait and you'll find the oldest son Robin, who was sent away to a mental institution because of his autism when he was 12. In 1991 Gorman mysteriously went blind for 10 months. This heartrending memoir simultaneously defines and inspires resiliency. Rather than succumbing to terror, Gorman allowed her blindness to help her recall the love and memories of her brother that she had dutifully erased so many years before.

About the Author:

Jacquelin Gorman is a lawyer and mother of two. She has recovered her eyesight and lives in Manhattan Beach, California.
