Mom's Best Friend

Mom's Best Friend by Sally Hobart Alexander

Meet the Author

When Sally Hobart Alexander was 24 years old and a third-grade teacher, she never dreamed that she would become another kind of teacher in almost no time at all. One day, however, she noticed a black line flit across her field of vision. It quickly disappeared, but it was the first sign of a problem in her retinas (a part of the eye) that eventually left her completely blind.
