Odyssey to Grace begins in the hills of Beckford Kraal, Clarendon, in a place affectionately called 'Sweeney Top'. Family values and unconditional love were the foundation for a young boy coming of age. It is the honest and engaging journey of a self-conscious, insecure boy who is visually impaired, and who learns to reframe his thoughts and focus on his abilities instead of his disabilities, to become Jamaica's first psychologist who is blind.

The book is not just a catalogue of life events... Dr. Sweeney shares the thoughts and emotions he experienced during those milestones... On leaving home to go to school in Kingston, of his hopes and dreams, on the anxiety caused by the gradual loss of his sight, and the turmoil generated by the devastating diagnosis, of his acceptance of disappointments and celebration of successes, and of his strong and persistent resilience and self-determination.
