CHASING ECHOES THROUGH THE DARK: Synopsis of the upcoming book written by D. J. Wessler and Adam McDaniel.

Blindness is just a handicap. But loneliness is a curse.

No one understands that more than sixteen-year-old Daniel Wessler. Blind since birth, he struggles to find his place in the world in spite of his disability. Resourceful, talented, creative and intelligent, he seems more than up to the challenge, making a name for himself through his sculpture and gaining respect and admiration from family and friends.

But Daniel is also gay—a fact he desperately hides from everyone around him. Trapped between two worlds of prejudice, he is unable to see, unable to love, and almost unable to live.

It is only through meeting Aaron, an adult gay man and creative mentor, that Daniel can come to terms with his true self at last. But as the friendship between them deepens, Aaron learns that Daniel is harboring other secrets—secrets far darker than the shadows of his blindness, setting off a chain of events that will change both their lives forever.

CHASING ECHOES THROUGH THE DARK is a poignant story of friendship and love, told through the eyes of someone who can not see, but who has experienced more than almost anyone could imagine. Filled with both humor and heartbreak, it is also a tale of perseverance in the face of immeasurable odds and immeasurable loss.
