About the Book
Each of us is a unique being with our own special personality and genetic make-up. Some of us are more aware of the disparity than others. Smith Meyer’s candid recounting of her life from childhood to her senior years will keep you engaged. You will often relate to her struggles, grappling with the inner conflicts and growth stemming from her differences, and identify with the changes and decisions she needed to make.
Dr. Gray was a very young man and he greeted us warmly. Each question he asked, I carefully assessed what I was seeing and answered truthfully. On and on the test went. Over an hour later, he said, “There’s something going on, but I can’t figure out what it is.”
My heart sank. Oh, no! Here we go again.
“Twice now, we’ve had Ruth’s eyes tested by different optometrists and both of them concluded she just wants glasses. She’s probably doing it again.” My dad looked disgusted and I wanted to cry.
