Author(s): Cath Weeks
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 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 - for him to be as perfect as other babies. So Twyla throws herself into motherhood whilst fervently searching for a cure for Charlie's blindness, when she hears of a high-risk operation that could restore her son's vision forever.
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.
