Review: “Educational, humorous, refreshingly honest and spiritual! Everyone can gain something from this book no matter who you are … As I am a trained Orientation and Mobility Specialist, I would encourage people experiencing sight impairments or not and even other instructors for the blind to step out in faith and read Mobility Matters by Amy Bovaird.” Well deserved 5-Stars!
Award-winning adventurous international teacher, life coach, and Author, Amy Bovaird, is diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a hereditary eye disease that will blind her. In spite of that, she manages to continue teaching overseas. Then her father’s final illness brings her back home for good.
There, friends and acquaintances begin to notice that she doesn’t always recognize them and sometimes stumbles…as if drunk! Insensitive students ridicule her in the classroom. Unwilling to accept that she is truly losing her eyesight, Amy resists when the Bureau of Blindness schedules a mobility specialist to begin training her to use a white cane.
How can she, an independent world traveler, use something that screams ‘I am a blind person’? Will her faith prove strong enough to allow her to move forward and accept herself as she is?
