Book cover

The World As I Have Found It is a remarkable sequel to Mary L. Day's poignant memoir, Incidents in the Life of a Blind Girl. Continuing where the previous book left off, this deeply personal account takes readers on a journey through the author's life, shedding light on the obstacles she faced and the triumphs she achieved.

One of the most striking aspects of this memoir is Day's unwavering determination despite her visual impairment. She vividly describes the challenges she encountered in a world not designed for people with disabilities. From the endless frustration of inaccessible spaces to the constant struggle for independence, Day offers a raw and honest portrayal of the numerous hurdles she had to overcome.

Yet, amidst the hardship, the underlying theme of hope shines brightly throughout the narrative. Day's unwavering resilience and optimism are truly inspiring. She seamlessly weaves together moments of despair with instances of joy and accomplishment, reminding readers that even in the darkest times, there is always a glimmer of light to hold onto.

Her vivid descriptions enable readers to experience her daily struggles, making it impossible not to empathize with her circumstances. Furthermore, her writing style is both accessible and engaging, allowing readers to easily connect with her story and her journey.

In addition to the personal anecdotes and reflections, The World As I Have Found It delves into broader social issues surrounding disability and accessibility. Day seamlessly incorporates thought-provoking discussions on societal attitudes, legislative progress, and the importance of inclusion. These insights add depth and context to her personal narrative and provide readers with a broader understanding of the challenges faced by the visually impaired community.

If there is one minor critique, it is that the book occasionally becomes overly detailed, which could potentially overwhelm some readers. However, this flaw does not detract significantly from the overall impact of the memoir.

In conclusion, The World As I Have Found It is a moving and enlightening sequel to Incidents in the Life of a Blind Girl. Mary L. Day's authentic voice and powerful storytelling illuminate the experiences of living with a disability, inspiring readers to appreciate the strength of the human spirit. This memoir is a testament to the power of resilience, reminding us all to embrace the challenges we face and find beauty in the world, even when it seems darkest.
