Book Review: Color Blind

Color Blind by Michelle Lindo-Rice is the first contemporary Christian novel that I have read. Loosely based on the story of Saul and the Prophet Ananias. The Story follows Saul Sweeterman, owner of a chain of auto dealerships. Sauls' daughter leaves home to marry an African-American man and Saul disowns her. A few years go by and Saul sees his daughter and her family on the street. In minutes a large truck is about to slam into them killing them all. Saul makes the decision to steer his vehicle into the path of the truck and save their family. Unfortunately not everyone was saved. His daughters husband was killed and Saul lost his vision. 

During his recuperation Saul is introduced to Annie, An African-American Physcial therapist, who doesn't allow him to sink into depression and works at bringing him to Christ. 

Overall this was a very good read. I was not aware that this was a Christian novel because it was not marketed as such, more as a romance. There were definitely strong romantic elements that are able to shine through because of the lack of sexual scenes. I throughly enjoyed this book.

I would rate this book 4/5 stars.
