A commercial, intelligent and high-concept debut about a mother who gives birth to a blind baby, from an author with huge bestseller potential
Twyla Ridley, resourceful, optimistic, has just had her first child. It's what she and her husband, Dylan, have always wished for.
However, Charlie is blind.
For the first time in her adult life Twyla feels truly tested. She cherishes her son, showering him with love and boundless affection, but there's a part of her that aches for him to see. So Twyla throws herself into motherhood with a very private agenda, because maybe, if she strives hard enough, she'll be able to find a way to fix him.
But is it a risk worth taking?
BLIND is about how hard we battle for our children and how blind we can be to the secrets of those closest to us. It's a story that delves into the very heart of our dangerous yearning for perfection.

The author's first novel is unlike anything I've read and is beautifully written and refreshingly unique. It will make you laugh, cry and question what you might do in the same situation.
