Book cover image description: A garden with rocks and pebbles, surrounded by grass and trees. To the left, a bench sits below a tree with a seated dog silhouetted on the grass in front of it. An ethereal glow of gold and green shines through the middle of the picture with the title of the book written in fantasy style lettering in darker gold and with black shadowing.
In the first book of her memoir trilogy, Pathway to Freedom Broken and Healed: Book One How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life, Patty Fletcher shares how choosing to attend The Seeing Eye guide dog school in Morristown, New Jersey, helped her to gain complete independence. But this decision would reveal glimpses into worlds she had never before known existed.
Once home from The Seeing Eye, Patty soon begins to realize that all is not right in her own world.
Pathway to Freedom Broken and Healed: Book One How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life Second Edition, by patty Fletcher is the author’s own story about courage and determination, as a blind person and a woman, and the intense love and trust between human and dog. When she’s in her 40s, Patty decides to get her first seeing eye dog. She wants to be able to do more on her own and be less dependent on the man she loves. After training, she takes Campbell home. He’s more than just a guide dog. He’s her best friend, her protector, her sidekick. Her relationship with her fiancé is rough, but the one with her dog is perfect. She confides in Campbell, cries to him, and he licks her face, nuzzles her neck and wags his tail. It’s heartwarming and beautiful, upsetting and scary too because of the fiancé. Everyone should read this book, blind or sighted. It’s about life and incredible. I couldn’t stop reading it. It kept pulling me along. I give it a 5-star review.
