A Different Kind of Beauty

When challenged by a dog trainer at Lion’s Foundation to write a story showing the benefits of fostering future dog guides rather than the sacrifices, Sylvia decided to continue the saga of Elizabeth and her family raising Beauty 2, a chocolate Lab this time.  She also wanted to create a kind of sliding doors split narrative where the reader follows the life of a new character, 16 year old Kyle as he goes blind from retinopathy. One chapter from Elizabeth’s life, boyfriend issues continue, her pregnant sister Debra returns,  one chapter from Kyle’s as he trades the potential for a driver’s license for a white cane, the story shows them crossing paths and impacting each other’s destiny without really acknowledging or liking each other.

When Kyle decides to trade his cane for a guide dog, their lives truly intersect.
