You will be shocked, angered and saddened by this mindscape so profoundly painted in words by the author. Yet, you will also be inspired. A must read for anyone who cares about children. BLINDERS is a true story of one woman who has painted an inspiring portrait of the power one individual can have in overcoming significant challenges to protect children from abuse and neglect.
