Soon, Rebecca Gray won’t be able to see. Diagnosed in her twenties with a degenerative eye disease, each day her world grows a little darker. She’s moved to the suburbs to raise her son, Jackson. In the wake of her husband\'s death, it should be a quieter, easier way of life. It won’t be.
The Moment That Changes Everything
When Bec awakes after fainting in the park, she makes promises to start taking better care of herself. When her son begins to cry, she approaches the crib. Reaches in. Picks him up. But he’s not her son.
There’s nothing Bec won’t do to find Jackson. But she’s a blind woman in a world where seeing is believing. The police think she’s confused. Her friends don’t see any differences. Relying on the conviction of her instinct and the power of a mother’s love, Bec must push the limits of her world to uncover what happened to her baby boy…and bring him home for good.

MY THOUGHTS -
Fantastic story! I loved this book from beginning to end. What drew me to this one was Bec's "degenerative eye disease". I was an asst. teacher for years in special ed. I had several blind children in my classes and ended up having two friends, one blind and one "legally blind" as a young adult. So this sounded very interesting to me. Well, it was a WIN! I thought it was done perfectly. The writing was great. It felt very real and the character development was expertly developed.
I loved Bec and her circle of friends. Bec was kind of quiet, to herself, but a strong woman. She didn't want a lot of help from others. I think she wanted to prove to them, and herself that she could do it. Yes, she was cold at times, but a lot of people are. Again, this part felt very real to me.
When she knew "the baby" was not hers and no one would believe her - for a second I thought "Noooo, that wouldn't happen, would it?" But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I probably wouldn't know if my friend's baby was hers or not. It's not like I see her everyday. And the author clearly stated that her friends hardly ever held Jackson. So, not only did this begin to also feel real but... her friends were starting to piss me off that they didn't believe her and support her. Or if they did it was fake. It took someone who was not a close friend to finally stand up, believe her and get things rolling.
This book really made me think how hard it must be to be blind and have a baby. I have two grandchildren. My daughter does a fantastic job parenting. But what if she were blind. Being a mom is hard enough, and scary at times with out the added stress of having a disability.
Very well written, interesting, sad, heartfelt book. This one not only had me on the edge of my seat, but also had my heart pounding! It really made me think and take another look at motherhood in general and how challenging even the simplest tasks can be.
Well now I am putting all Rea Frey's books on my wish list!!!
