Sam Hill always saw the world through different eyes.
Born with red pupils, he was called “Devil Boy” or Sam
“Hell” by his classmates; “God’s will” is what his mother
called his ocular albinism. Her words were of little
comfort, but Sam persevered, buoyed by his mother’s
devout faith, his father’s practical wisdom, and his two
other misfit friends.
Sam believed it was God who sent Ernie Cantwell, the only
African American kid in his class, to be the friend he so
desperately needed. And that it was God’s idea for Mickie
Kennedy to storm into Our Lady of Mercy like a tornado,
uprooting every rule Sam had been taught about boys and
Forty years later, Sam, a small-town eye doctor, is no
longer certain anything was by design—especially not the
tragedy that caused him to turn his back on his friends,
his hometown, and the life he’d always known. Running
from the pain, eyes closed, served little purpose. Now,
as he looks back on his life, Sam embarks on a journey
that will take him halfway around the world. This time,
his eyes are wide open—bringing into clear view what
changed him, defined him, and made him so afraid, until
he can finally see what truly matters.
