    Lost in the dark. Blindness is one of our greatest fears. We rely on our sight to navigate, not only our physical environment but also our social and emotional world. Loss of vision has profound effects on all aspects of life and relationships. As such, these three books are not just about blindness, or adapting to the physical constraints of blindness, but more specifically about adapting emotionally.
