A young girl is determined to prove she can succeed as a speech therapist despite her blindness.

Gift of Gold was good, but it didn't have quite the tension and somehow I didn't feel as if Cathy's struggles in Gift of Gold were as engaging as the first book, Light a Single Candle

Gift of Gold was good, but it didn't have quite the tension and somehow I didn't feel as if Cathy's struggles in Gift of Gold were as engaging as the first book, Light a Single Candle. Still, I enjoyed finding out 'what happened to Cathy' after Light a Single Candle, so this book was nice for a follow up, and it was nice to find out that she did go to college and graduate.

This was a sequel to "Light a Single Candle" one of my favorite books growing up. I ordered "Gift of Gold" after seeing it listed in a paperback copy of the first book. It was a delight to see what had happened to the characters since the end of the first story. Based on the author's life.

I liked Gift of Gold, but I liked Light a Single Candle better. Gift of Gold was good, but it didn't have quite the tension and somehow I didn't feel as if Cathy's struggles in Gift of Gold were as engaging as the first book, Light a Single Candle. Still, I enjoyed finding out 'what happened to Cathy' after Light a Single Candle, so this book was nice for a follow up, and it was nice to find out that she did go to college and graduate. Maybe there should have been an in-between about her struggles in college, and why she choose speech therapy.

The book came fast and in good condition. The story is about a girl in college on her own with a seeing eye dog. There are obticles to overcome

Now having read this book three times, I can say it's just as powerful as it was to me the first time, over twenty years ago.

Yes, I like the old-fashionedness of it, the plastic rain scarves and typewriters and all. Nevertheless, what I may love most is that this isn't some predictable, run-of-the-mill tale merely about goals and dreams. This is a complex, soul-searching kind of read. It's smart in style with wit and wisdom. Not at all fast-paced, but anything but flat.

In the last quarter especially, Cathy's journey pulls no punches. It even gets pretty depressing for a while, but I find it all the more compelling for not being too easy. The truth, growth, and hope in Cathy's story is earned. Plus, there's a nice little thread of down-to-earth romance tied in.

A novel about not only facing your outward challenges but taking a deep, honest look at yourself—so worth the read.

This is an excellent account of a blind girl's struggles in working toward her career goal of being a speech therapist. Cathy, the main character of Butler's earlier novel, "Light a Single Candle," goes on to college and faces many trials, including dealing with the death of one of the children she works with and dealing with the parents' attitudes about her blindness.
