    “Powerful”, “poignant”, “emotional” are expressions one will experience when reading this memoir of an amazing woman faced with adversity but accomplishing much through intelligence, gumption, and humor.

  2. Julie O.

    Reading Sandra’s “See” will introduce you to an extraordinary woman who has lived her life in a sighted world though partially blind from birth. Through her story, you are with her as she grows up in a sighted world after time in an incubator left her partially blind. She attended public schools with her twin sister who was spared her sight, and her parents made no special accommodations for her handicap. Every task was more difficult for her, but she persevered always with a beaming smiling. Through the pages of her book, you will see how she excelled, graduated from college, and worked independently until retirement. You will not only be inspired but you will laugh at Sandra’s antics and zest for life. It’s a happy tale and teaches us that no handicap can stop us from having a fulfilling life.
