It is 1988. After three years of teaching English as a Second Language in Latin America, Amy Bovaird is offered a position in Indonesia, halfway across the world. On this archipelago, Bovaird has the opportunity to learn about new cultures.
But there is a problem. Bovaird pays a visit to her local eye doctor for what she believes will be a routine upgrade of her glasses’ prescription in the break between jobs. A lengthy examination with a retinal specialist follows. The news she receives turns out to be a challenge. She is losing her vision to Retinitis Pigmentosa, a condition she can’t even pronounce and for which there is no cure.
Bovaird faces a dilemma. Should she risk possible danger with her debilitating vision to pursue her dream contract abroad or stay at home near the safety of her family?
