Seeing Things

Hill, Patti. Seeing Things. Nashville, TN: B&H Publishing Group. 2009.

seeingthingsLiving with macular degeneration doesn’t stop Birdie Wainwright from living. At age seventy-something, she loves to hike, dance, bake pies and talk to Huck Finn (really). After a nasty tumble resulting in an ankle break, Birdie moves in with her son, daughter-in-law and grandson. While getting to know her grandson better and helping him through English class, Birdie finds herself causing trouble, learning forgiveness, staying active, and “seeing things” in life…

Just the kind of lady I hope to be some day (following in my mother’s footsteps), I enjoyed Seeing Things quite a bit. Full of humor, faith, struggles, relationships, forgiveness, and living life to the fullest, this book was definitely a treat. Though not always one to judge a book by the cover, I am certainly glad I did with this one. Adorable!! Perhaps a bit hard to start, a few pages in and I was hooked…very creatively written! Hard to believe I have never read a book by Patti Hill yet… but I sure will again now. Although maybe not an intention within the novel, I did learn a few things about macular degeneration which caused me to investigate the disease even a bit further.
