Renowned American Author Don S. McClure created this incredible story of two talented young ladies who, because of their separate life challenges since birth, fight their way to the top of their field while growing up to make their dreams a reality.
One girl will bring total victory for those like her. She is living with an impairment that costs her 90% of sight.
Her name is Sierra Leone Winston, and she will force the world to understand and respect her as a whole human being who just happens to be different from birth.
She will become one of the best female pitchers in the high school public baseball series. Our story includes the courageous views of Sierra's two loving parents who are willing to face the world and all its ugly perceptions of their child, who was born with an affliction, or disease, of her eyes through no fault of either parent.
She was the child that God blessed them with to care for, guide through life, and shield from the unacceptance of those who saw her as a child with a handicap. Many felt she would not be able to cope in society or compete with those who were considered normal children in the educational system or in life itself.
