2015 Women Writers Reading Challenge-Book #10: The Blind Contessa’s New Machine by Carey Wallace


This book should have been really depressing as it’s about a young, vibrant woman who goes blind. But it doesn’t feel that way, it feels more like a fairy tale (but it’s really based on the true story of the woman who inspired the first typewriter).

It caught my eye in the library because it was so much smaller than the other hardcover books on the shelf. Then I read the flap and I was hooked.

really recommend this fast read. It’s the perfect vacation book because it’s a light read, but with enough substance to keep your attention.
