Alex was no mor3e enchanted by the prickly young Scotsman temporarily marooned under her father's roof than he was by her, but her heart went out to Julie, the little blind orphan he brought with him, especially when she learned of David's callously practical plans for the child's future.
From the book jacket: CATHY'S GOLDEN DREAM For somewhere in the Nearing future, her physical handicap would be no more; she was on the threshold of freedom from those "limitations." She wouldn't have to prove she could master speech therapy in spite of being blind. She could master it or fail or simply quit on the same footing as any other student. If she wanted to switch to another field, if she wanted to leave school and, get a job, if she wanted to withdraw her savings from the bank and travel for a year, it would be as easy for her as walking through an open door. . . . When Cathy Wheeler decided to become a speech therapist, she faced more than ordinary problems. Cathy was blind, and her speech department chairman said she had chosen an unrealistic profession. Even with sight, controlling young patients would be difficult, and to depend on other senses to work successfully with children would take extraordinary talent and alertness. But Cathy had courage-backed up by a golden dream. An eye doctor had said that part of her sight might be restored. Not only would resistance to her chosen career stop, but Cathy knew she would find it easier to make up her mind about Greg and Steve, the two very different men in her life. But suppose the verdict at the final eye examination wen against her? Cathy wondered if she would have the courage then to stand on her own two feet and prove that she could handle a career in speech therapy. How would It affect her feelings about Greg and Steve? How would they feel about her? "... unusual and inspiring novel, with the added attraction of a tender love story." -Publishers Weekly
