Book Review - Blind in One Eye

About the Book

Where was my brother, the one born seven years before me but kept by my birth parents? Was it really possible that, after the lifetime I’d spent wondering about him, he was the guy a friend had just seen on the subway—the one who supposedly looked like my older twin?

Finding my brother would soon feel like a naïve goal. His secretive and frightened parents had far more to hide than I could have imagined, and they had worked hard to maintain the elaborate facade of an ordinary family. Breaching their defenses would trigger events that quickly took control of my life.

Blind in One Eye is the true story of an adoptee finding, and being absorbed into, a shockingly troubled birth family—a story about abruptly leaving behind life as an only child. But it’s also the story of someone with focused and demanding expectations who learns to see other possibilities, to see that the answers he actually gets in life might be more important than the ones he thought he wanted.

The most remarkable discoveries seem to come while looking for something else—as long as you’re open to the possibilities.

My Take on the Book
This book was an amazing, honest account of the world that David Ford is and has lived in. The book reveals much about the people and families that go through adoption. The story slowly carries the reader along on a journey of enlightenment and revelation and it shares. It is hard to put into words the amazing story that is shared here. This story has been well crafted and will keep your attention from the very beginning to the end, this book is it! I highly recommend this to all!
