Be my Eyes
Dustin Stevens Standalone Novel
Most nineteen year olds believe they are invincible. They wake up each day thinking they have all the time in the world to travel, to get an education, to fall in love. Ruby Sewell isn’t most nineteen year olds. She wakes up every morning unable to see a thing, her only goal to make it to the west coast before her time runs out.
Most twenty-six year olds don’t live life in a self-destructive spiral. They don’t engage in bar fights, scrape by on low-end jobs, or embroil in years-long battles with their parents. Cole Dixon isn’t most twenty-six year olds. Still reeling from an unforeseen blast five years earlier, he is down to his last chance with nowhere to go and no inclination to get there.
Against both their wills, they set off together on a journey that will define them both for the rest of their days.
Wow! I wasn't sure what to expect from this, but I was pleasantly surprised. Be My Eyes is an inspirational read about two people who have very different challenges. They set out on a journey which ends up being a journey of self-discovery. We never know why certain people cross our paths in life, but this book provides some insight on that theory. Rudy and Cole were a delightful pairing. These two characters were well-developed, relatable, and they pulled me in emotionally with their stories.
Dustin Stevens did an excellent job is bringing this story together. The writing is very descriptive, the plot is engaging and emotionally thick, and the underlying tone and meaning will prove to help many. This book was written with compassion!
