Homer’s Odyssey

Homer was found abandoned at two weeks of age with such a severe eye infection that it threatened his young life.  He was taken to a young, idealistic vet who didn’t have the heart to give up on him and felt he was special enough to be given a chance.  The only possible treatment would leave him blind for life but she chose to have faith in him and in the humanity of people, knowing that somewhere the right person could be found to take care of him.  That person did come along, and it was her amazing experience with Homer, named for the blind author of epic poems,  that changed her life, taught her about love, life, faith, loyalty and trust.  She learned that while his “disability” forced him to develop strengths in other areas, it was his amazing courage to keep on going, to be willing to try and fail, to trust in himself and in her, that enabled him to make a friend of every stranger,  and perform amazing, in some cases even heroic feats.  It is a feel good book every animal lover will appreciate, and one that anyone who has ever known a soul living with a “disability” will immediately recognize-that with the gifts of courage, faith, trust and hope, we find the best in ourselves and in one another.

Homer’s Odyssey is available on Amazon.com.
