The classic bestselling memoir - how a beautiful chocolate Labrador transformed the life of a determined and passionate young woman
As a girl, Sheila never let her gradual descent into blindness prevent her from trying to do everything a sighted person could do. Then at 17, unable to see to find her way around the house she grew up in, she found herself dreading her future in an ‘ever darkening vacuum’.
But then the remarkable Emma enters her life, and Sheila begins a journey that brings her the independence, love and happiness she never dreamed possible.
Emma and I is the moving and inspirational memoir story about the unique bond between Sheila and her dog, and shows that, sometimes, miracles do happen.
