Hailed as “One of the best technical painters of our time” by an L.A. Times critic, 27 year-old, Aubrey Johnson is finally gaining traction for her work. But as she weaves through what should be a celebration of her art, a single nagging echo of her doctor’s words refuses to stay silent—there is no cure. In less than eight weeks Aubrey is going blind.

So begins her quest. Traveling on a one-way ticket around the world with childhood friend Jeff Anderson, Aubrey is in complete denial. But a blindfolded game of tasting foreign foods in China forces her to  confront the reality of her situation.

In this adult coming of age story, Aubrey struggles to accept her crippling disability and what she perceives as the loss of her independence. But on her journey she finds a deeper understanding of herself and her life–sometimes fragmented and complex, but always with humbling honesty.
