Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Anderson (Sweet Nothings, etc.) again explores the ways in which a physical disability can impact a relationship in this moving contemporary romance, set in picaresque Crystal Falls, Ore. Blind since birth, Carly Adams is celebrating the surgical restoration of her sight with a friend at a Western bar when she meets rancher Hank Coulter. Hank plies Carly with liquor, intent on a one-night stand, but he gets more than he bargained for when he learns that their brief encounter has resulted in pregnancy. Neither consider abortion for a second even though pregnancy will have dire consequences for Carly's sight and her plans to attend graduate school. Nor does Carly worry that her child might inherit her condition, lattice dystrophy. Instead, Hank bullies her into marriage. Hank redeems himself as the story progresses, treating Carly with tender care as she deals with her pregnancy and her deteriorating sight, but his most daunting hurdle may be her emotional insecurities. It's evident that Anderson has thoroughly researched lattice dystrophy, and this, more than anything, will help readers gain a better understanding of Carly. The last-minute revelation that Carly was burned in a previous relationship feels superfluous, but readers will embrace Anderson's characters and her message-that love bridges all divides.

From Booklist

Carly had to wait 28 years to see what a man looked like. Born with Lattice dystrophy, Carly's sight has only recently been restored; and to celebrate, she accompanies a friend to a bar. Unused to alcohol and the attention of a handsome cowboy, Carly lets Hank Coulter take her to his truck, but that humiliating experience not only leaves Carly not caring if she ever has sex or sees Hank again but pregnant as well, which threatens her sight. As soon as Hank finds out, he tries to convince Carly to let him help her. The two agree to a marriage in name only to solve Carly's financial problems, but Hank realizes that he's in love and sets out to do whatever it takes to turn their temporary arrangement into something permanent. Readers might need to wipe away tears as they read Anderson's latest contemporary romance featuring another of her Coulter brothers, since few will be able to resist the power of this beautifully emotional, wonderfully romantic love story.

5.0 out of 5 stars emotionally packed July 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
While I agree with cheshirecat that it's not a great thing that Bess goes behind Carly's back and so does her father there was a point. Carly was being stubbornly independent and refused to see the whole picture. She couldn't raise a child both financially and physically with out Hank's help and Bess could see that. Bess went behind Carly's back because she was Carly's friend, not because she felt Carly was stupid or couldn't take care of herself. Same thing for Carly's father.
Aside from that, wow! Amazing book. Very emotional, I cried and laughed and my only regret is that we don't hear more about them in Bright Eyes (Zeke's Story). The characters, even secondary ones, are well developed and you really relate to the heroine (emotionally anyway).
Plus it was just fun seeing the whole Coulter gang again.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite of her Coulter Series June 13 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my favorite book by Catherine Anderson. The fact that the leading lady was blind touched my heart in more ways than I can even say. This book touched so many emotions so deaply. One page I would be laughing (just wait until the driving scene), and the next I would be bawling.
Great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart Warming, powerful, & informative June 6 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Catherine Anderson has a way of creating characters that feel like family. You are right there with them feeling every emotion and stuggle they are going through.
Catherine provides extensive information about Carly's blindness and what she has to face. And Hank is just the man to stand by her.
I found the ending to be powerful and emotional. Love it!

I just love how Catherine Anderson can create characters that feel like family. You are right there from beginning to end, experiencing the stuggles and emotions they are going through.
In "Blue Skies," Catherine Anderson has done extensive research on the type of blindness Carly has, and you come away with a better understanding of what she has to face. And Hank turns out to be the best guy to stand by her.
I found the ending to be very powerful and emotional. Loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yeah. May 27 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Carly wants to see everything now that she is no longer blind, and one of the first things her eyes fall on is well worth a second look. Hank Coulter is all man, and their dance goes from the barroom to the bedroom. Then, soon after, Carly discovers she's pregnant, and though Hank made a big impression on her, he can't even remember her name when she calls to tell him. To make matters worse, pregnancy will probably undo all the surgery's miracles, leaving her blind once more.
Hank's memory needs some work, but his honor functions well. He immediately wants to do the right thing and marry Carly. She agrees out of need, but as Hank spends weeks caring for her and showing her all she can see before the world goes dark, convenience turns into reality. Hank's world is full of innocent peril, forcing Carly to choose love or life.
(...)Catherine Anderson's name on a book is all that is needed to assure readers of a story that goes on the keeper shelf. It will always be heartwarming, filled with characters who jump off the page to your soul. (...)

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Even Finish It Feb. 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With each successive novel I read by Catherine Anderson, I get more and more disgusted. I find I cannot tolerate her to-good-to-be-true heroes any more. The heroine is always stubbornly obtuse when it comes to her own welfare and the great looking, nice hero has to bend over backwards to accommodate her. That just isn't reality. I think Sweet Nothings was the best of this series; the rest aren't worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lyn-A Catherine Fan Jan. 22 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What is there NOT to love about Blue Skies and all of Catherine's books?? She knows how to take a tragic situation and turn it into a wonderful romantic 'informative' story. She does so much research into a medical situation and comes forth with all the correct information about it and turn it into a wonderful interesting book that you just can't put down till the last page is turned. Keep up the great work Catherine.
