    Personal and moving story of life as a deaf person who is also going blind and has amazing surgery to try and enable her to hear I found the book interesting and thought provoking Jo is honest without feeling sorry for herself It gave insight into difficulties getting to use a cane, a guide dog, and issues with services for deaf but not deaf blind people I found the way she just dealt with everything was inspirational and was very happy she was able to have the surgery I remember seeing inf Personal and moving story of life as a deaf person who is also going blind and has amazing surgery to try and enable her to hear I found the book interesting and thought provoking Jo is honest without feeling sorry for herself It gave insight into difficulties getting to use a cane, a guide dog, and issues with services for deaf but not deaf blind people I found the way she just dealt with everything was inspirational and was very happy she was able to have the surgery I remember seeing info about the surgery on the news and wondered if that spoil the book, but it did not because these are her own words, not a newsy journalist viewpoint I won t revealin case people are not aware of her story Highly recommended

  6. Rosemary Rosemary says:

    A fascinating story which has been in the hands of a good editor It seems almost a miracle that the author, deaf from birth, learned to speak with a perfect Geordie accent through tireless speech therapy sessions with her grandfather She then has cochlear implants much later in life.

  7. Isla Scott Isla Scott says:

    This was an insightful, engrossing read It made me imagine what it must be have been like growing up with her disabilities and I liked the fact that the playlist of the first music tracks she heard was included at the end of the book.

  8. Nilsa Pacheco Nilsa Pacheco says:

    Very inspiring and heart warming I would like to meet the author and give her a personal congratulatory hug If only all of us could be as persevering as Jo we would all be part of a better world.
