With Different Sight by Charles Mossop

Happy Release Day to Charles Mossop 
for his Historical Time Travel Fantasy, 
WITH DIFFERENT SIGHT

A young man receives a medical diagnosis which condemns him–or so he believes–to a meaningless and unproductive life as a disabled person, In a final, desperate effort to find a cure, he journeys to Boston. On the way, he meets a woman who seems to know about him, in spite of his never having met her before. This woman makes it possible for him to visit the world of eighteenth century Europe and America, as well as Ancient Greece. In these lost worlds of the past, he meets and converses with disabled persons, and comes to a new understanding of who he is and what life can hold for him.
