This book is absolutley brilliant, a story very close to my heart and is a must read.

'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 ❤

This is a story which touches hearts and minds. Any readers who have experience of living with autism will instantly recognise the daily battles faced by Sophie, the main character, who is desperately struggling to meet the needs of her beautiful autistic teenage daughter, Rosie. As a parent, I felt her mounting frustration and increasing powerlessness as her loving efforts to care for her often violent child slowly wore her down. The soul searching that Sophie goes through in an effort to make the best decision for her child and the rest of the family is described with raw honesty, which must surely open the eyes of those readers who still see autism as a stigma. Home is a brave book which provides the reader with a 'warts and all' experience of family life with an autistic child, but, more importantly, it paints a picture of a hopeful future created by loving parents who found the strength to make tough choices. This is a life affirming read.

This is a very well written and thought provoking book telling the story of a mum torn in two when she has to make a decision no mother would ever want to make. I urge you to read it for yourself without giving the story away it is a book every mother should read, no I correct myself everyone who comes into contact with children (so that's everyone.)
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.)

I was inspired to read this book as I work with Kate and had previously read Mr Browns suitcase. This book is told with such empathy and realism. It should be read by everyone who works with children autistic or not. It clearly portrays the roller coaster of emotions experienced by all who are affected by autism (tremendous highs and lonely lows). It also reminds you to think of the whole picture when making judgements (as we all do).
Well done Kate for pouring your heart and soul into telling this moving story. Vicki x

A beautifully written story about a mother who has two daughters, one of which has autism. The book is very well written and deals with the struggles and difficult decisions the mother has to deal with. I did cry through a lot of the book and smile to myself along the way. Will definitely read more from this author. Well done Kate

What a beautifully written book once again by Kate. I so quickly became captivated by the story, trying to find time so I could keep reading, making me smile and close to tears in parts. You could really tell it was written from personal experience, from the heart, I felt like I knew the characters personally too, lovely work Kate.

Really enjoyed this book, Home gives an insight into what it is like to live with an Autistic child, and the tough but necessary hard decisions that come with it. Kate writes in such a way that as a reader, you care what happens to the family.
