Zena Cooper lives a full life without one thing many of us take for granted: sight. Born with Marfan syndrome, a connective tissue disorder that means she is almost completely blind, Zena kept the extent of her condition hidden from the world for four dec

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. Zena also shares her unique model to reset negative thought patterns and a workbook to help the reader reshape their own narrative.

Deeply touching and uplifting, What You See When You Can't See offers a way of looking at the world through different eyes and a roadmap to finding bliss in the simplest of things.

This book will appeal to male and female readers over 40 (globally, this is the age where people most commonly begin to lose their eyesight) who have experienced sight loss in some form, or who know someone afflicted by sight loss. On a broader scale, readers interested in inspirational true stories and stories about animals as extraordinary companions in the BMS
