Customer Review

on 16 September 2013
What a tender, heart-warming story!

I recently read the latest edition (published by New World Library, August 15th 2013) and was deeply touched by Walker's personal journey as she supported her daughter, Grace, an 'Aspie'.

Transforming the fear of such an overwhelming medical 'label' into a positive experience must be a huge challenge for anyone, especially a mother who is hard-wired to protect her young from ANY danger. Walker tells her tale without any fuss; she shares her physical and emotional journey in easy-to-read prose and as such, the complex story within these pages is even more hard-hitting on the emotional scale.

I was particularly touched by Walker sharing her raw emotions about realising she needed some kind of more 'formal' support from a network of people who'd been there, walked along the same path with a precious 'Aspie' child. A reminder to anyone reading this title that without connection, with communication, we cannot truly function at any level.

Debi's letter (an appendix) had me in floods of tears, at the very end. For not only does Walker share her own hard, rocky path to finding peace as she supports her family, she also shares so beautifully an insight into Grace's own journey. Through the choppy waters of seeking understanding in the education system, past the immense frustrations and finally to a place where compassion and achievement, for the whole family, is the crowning glory.

A truly lovely, inspiring story of a mother's love for her daughter.
