DISCOVERING A NEW PERSPECTIVE
Reading the first few chapters left me breathless with the anxiety of this kind of life, and I knew it was inevitable that everything would change. An accident did just that for Sarah, leaving her brain-injured with a condition known as Left Neglect. The injury in the right side of her brain left her unable to feel, see, or utilize her left side.
The rehabilitation center does not bring everything back to normal for her, so when she goes home, she must continue to learn. What Sarah discovers in the process, however, is that sometimes rediscovering how to see what is inaccessible to her helps her see everything around her and about her life in new ways.
How will Sarah's life change in unexpected and wonderful ways? Will her inability to do "normal" things bring her so much more in the process? And how will the accident and period of recovery strengthen relationships in new ways?
I could not help but feel connected to Sarah, her mother, her husband Bob and the children. Their issues and problems made this family seem like a part of my life. I thoroughly enjoyed Left Neglected and would recommend it for anyone who loves inspirational reads or for anyone who enjoys a good family story. Five stars.
