About the Book

More Than The Eye Can See is about two young women, one sighted and one blind, living together as roommates in a small Southern college during the “peaches and cream” fifties. The sighted student reluctantly becomes reader to her blind roommate. A letter dated June 23, 1957 -- the author’s wedding day -- turns up in a box of keepsakes in 2012. Written by the blind roommate as a paean to their college life together, the author realizes she has never read the letter – and certainly never responded to it. The memoir becomes the long-overdue response. Poignant memories and hilarious escapades characterize the narrative.
