In Your Eyes

  

In your Eyes
Robert Bradshaw
February 1st 2014 (November 1st 1998)

 

You speak, I see; images before lost.
You speak, I listen; opening closed souls.
You speak, I feel; longing to love.

Matt Reynolds, a visually impaired graduate student, refuses to let his handicap limit his life. Happy and confident even amidst the obstacles that challenge him daily, Matt allows only one thing to blind him – a belief that love will yield a dependence he is to proud to accept.
Jane Bohlin volunteers at a recording studio that supplies recorded textbooks to visually impaired students. Still grieving the death of her husband, Jane is consumed by loneliness, afraid that her chance for love and happiness are gone forever.
When Jane is asked to record a special reading project for Matt, their own story begins. Matt is instantly intrigued by Jane and her tender voice captures his heart. Jane, who has distanced herself from everyone she ever knew, welcomes Matt’s friendship. As their relationship grows into a love they both desperately need, insecurities arise as Matt and Jane must come to terms with the demons of their pasts.
In Your Eyes is a story about love and how love can overcome any impairment whether it be physical or emotional.

 

 

 

This isn’t a bad story by all means. In fact it is a good insight into the world of a visually impaired person. And its storyline did have potential.

Unfortunately I feel it feels a little dry and dusted. No offense but I think if the author would update this story a little and bring it with its technology into this decade (it has been written in the early 1990’s) … the contemporary reader (like me) would feel more at home with the characters.

AND a few pinches here and there would take out the dry and it could really be quite juicy and fresh …..

So not BAD no just in need of refreshing …
