From the cover: “Norma Tillman finds people. She has reunited thousands of missing loved ones, birth parents, siblings, friends, first loves, debtors, deadbeat dads, and others.
From the time she posed as a homeless woman and was befriended by a former San Quentin inmate to the time she sat in her car not knowing her client was being strangled nearly to death inside the house she was watching, Norma Tillman has led a life that reads like a detective novel.
Along the way she encountered people with tales of heartbreaking sadness, heart-stopping joy, and unpredictable twists of human experience. And she tells about it all in The Man with the Turquoise Eyes, a book filled with warmth as well as excitement.
How can you set a price on the expression of a young woman seeing her mother for the first time? How can you determine the cost of a grandmother’s joy when she holds a grandchild she didn’t know existed? Or how can you calculate the wonder of lost loves finding each other after years spent apart? Norma asks. These are the kinds of rewards that keep me in the people-finding business. In The Man with the Turquoise Eyes Norma shares with the reader the joy — and the trials — of bringing people together.”
