Description


Beth Finke was a 26-year-old newlywed with a promising career when juvenile diabetes caused her to lose her sight. Journals kept during eye surgeries and transcribed onto Finke's talking computer became the foundation for Long Time, No See, a book celebrating how ordinary people can work through extraordinary difficulties. With unflinching candor and acerbic wit, Finke chronicles the ups and downs of her marriage, her training with a seeing-eye dog, her struggles to find employment, and life with her son Gus, born with special needs of his own. Because she has taken care to include accurate medical information as well as personal memoir, Long Time, No See serves as an excellent resource for others in similar situations and for professionals who deal with adults or children who have disabilities.
