About "Fanny Crosby - the Blind Girl's Song (Trail Blazers Series)"
If you've ever picked up a hymn book, the chances are that you've sung a song written by a blind girl... and not just any blind girl... Fanny Crosby.

She held her grandmother's hand but she thought that was because Grandmother needed her help not the other way around.
