Inhaltsangabe: Addie Marsh, a widow in her seventies, faces macular degeneration. Struggling to maintain the home she loves in the mountains above Bear Lake, Addie forms a cautious but necessary friendship with a young runaway named Sybil.
From School Library Journal:
Adult/High School-Addie Marsh, an elderly but vigorous widow, is fighting the restrictions of macular degeneration. Facing impaired vision in a small mountain community, she feels her world shrinking but stoutly denies to her married son that she is ready for a retirement home. She rocks on the porch of her lakeside cottage, withdrawing into her vivid memories as a child, teen, and young woman. Then a couple moves into the closed-up cottage next door, and the young man is unfriendly and gone all day. After several encounters, Addie perceives that Sybil, the rail-thin girl who declares herself to be both pregnant and about to marry, is probably neither. When Addie burns a cake because she can't read her watch or the oven dial, Sybil comes to her rescue and a genuine friendship develops. Meanwhile, Addie is reluctantly drawn into a support group and slowly learns to acknowledge, accept, and cope with her increasing disability. When Sybil's sullen partner accuses her of hoarding money, beats her savagely, and sets out to rob Addie, the old woman escapes across the lake to find help. Addie is the heart of this tale; other characters are less convincing, but teens will be drawn to the unfolding of her character-building life experiences, and will learn much about coping with disability and the lifelong need for companionship.
