'Home' tells of a tough battle of a family dealing with the consequences of caring for a child with autism at home, the trials and tribulations, how this impacts on the individual themselves 'Rosie,' her distraught exhausted mother, her kind caring sister and her extremely worried extended family and the torturous descions they must face to enable the safety and wellbeing of everyone.
I myself was in this exact situation as 'Sophie' just over 4 years ago, it is one of the toughest journeys you can ever go on believe me, heartbreaking choices taken out of your hands as a loving mother.
This book is a beautifully written inspiring story about such a sensitive topic not spoken about often enough and it has thoroughly done the subject justice.
I could not put it down, it made me laugh, cry, remember and feel 'Sophie' and 'Rosies' emotions so close to my heart, but also feel like I wasn't on my own.
Anyone who wants to understand or have insight into how autism and learning disabilities affect a family when there is literally NO other choice needs to read this book.
Thank you Kate ❤
Autism is so little understood, but books such as Rain Man and The Curious Incident of a Dog in the Night and the TV drama The "A" word have highlighted the difficulty faced by families touched by autism. Now Kate has written a book worthy to be classed with the above as she tells the story of a mum with two special, beautiful girls, but one is autistic.
It made me cry and it made me laugh and it made me want to keep reading, (what more can you ask of a quality book written by a quality author.)
Well done Kate for pouring your heart and soul into telling this moving story. Vicki x
