Hill, Patti. Seeing Things. Nashville, TN: B&H Publishing Group. 2009.
Living 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…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
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.
