What You See When You Can’t See
A heart-warming and uplifting tale of living with partial sight, an unforgettable bond with the most lovable guide dog, and finding beauty in every moment no matter the obstacles.
Zena was born with Marfan Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder which affects the heart, eyes, lungs, blood vessels, joints, bones, and bodily systems. Concretely, it meant she is nearly completely blind, yet she kept this condition hidden from the world for four decades–until she met Munch.
A guide dog with a huge personality, Munch made Zena’s invisible disability suddenly plain for all the world to see. This book shares the story of Zena’s journey with Munch, who helped her not only come to terms with her disability but gave her the strength to find her place in the world and help others understand that, like her, they could see the beauty in living a different kind of life.
