Book Review~Echoes of an Angel
Echoes of an Angel is an amazing true story of the life of Ben Underwood, who lost both eyes at the young age of two. Ben's family was poor, and his mother struggled to survive with her children. However, Ben's mother Aquanetta (who is the author along with Chris Macias) was strong, and she was determined that her son would have as normal of a life as possible. Through her determination and strong faith in God, as well as some wonderful friends, family, and teachers, Ben achieved more than anyone thought possible.
Ben never used a cane-but he did ride a scooter, play video games, and did pretty much everything other children did. Ben used echolocation-'seeing' through the reflection of sound waves. He had a strong faith, and amazed everyone who heard of him. He appeared on numerous shows, including Oprah. Though unfortunately his life was cut short by cancer, he left quite a mark on this world.
Echoes of an Angel was a wonderful reminder of putting our faith in God and watching what He can do! The book contains pictures and a Discussion Guide. You can learn more about the book, including links for purchasing a copy, at www.Tyndale.com .
