Katie Couric's Bookshelf
By Elizabeth Kata
As a young girl, I was completely moved by this beautiful story about love, in which Selina, a blind white girl, sees with her heart the goodness in a black man. Despite the difficulties they each face, they share a relationship that is honest and rewarding. The main character was blinded after her mother threw acid in her face when she was a girl. I was horrified by that vicious act but touched by her ability to persevere.
