A lot more about her travels to visit persons with albinism and less about the actual the actual condition. Still, there was some interesting information on the condition and cultural reactions to those with albinism.

"While [the book]... was inspired by one tiny girl, [it] covers broad ground. It is an honest memoir of a loving and protective mother...and serves as an homage to survivors of horrific violence ...[It is also] a study of how longheld cultural beliefs drive the idea of difference or "the other". " Sue Carter Flinn Q&Q March 2015.
