Editorial Reviews

Review

Recipient of the Catholic Writers Guild 2018 Seal of Approval

“A journey of compassion, frustration, and triumph . . . Anderson’s love for her son marks this beautiful portrait of family and faith.” Publishers Weekly

“Susan Anderson’s writing is like a breath of fresh air. Her descriptions of her son and his autism are so real and powerful, I feel as though I’m standing next to her in the room. I highly recommend this book for anyone who would like insight into the world of raising a special-needs child.” ―Carrie Cariello, author of What Color Is Monday and Someone I’m with Has Autism

“Any parent who has been handed an unexpected trial will appreciate this honest, vivid, and inspiring tale of raising an autistic son. There is heartbreak and frustration but also triumph and hope, as Susan and Rob find the strength through their faith to offer their son unqualified love.” ―Philip Gerard, professor of creative writing at University of North Carolina at Wilmington and author of The Patron Saint of Dreams and Down the Wild Cape Fear

Paul’s Prayers is a peek into one mother’s journey alongside a very special son. Author Susan Anderson’s writing is honest, poignant, and mind-opening as she reminds each of us to cherish our relationships as we move along our everyday path to God’s love.” ―Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com and author of The Grace of Yes

“Many of us are gifted with loved ones who think and see the world in different ways. Susan Anderson’s book about her autistic son, Paul, is a highly readable, moving, human, and sometimes humorous account of the joys, trials, and challenges of raising an atypical child. As all good parents do―for all of our children―Susan and her husband Rob struggled to help their son navigate this complex world and grow to be the man God wants him to be. A wonderful book, both for those whose lives are touched by atypical thinkers and those who want to understand them better.” ―Arthur Powers, co-founder and vice president of the Catholic Writers Guild and author of The Book of Jotham

Paul’s Prayers could just as fittingly be entitled ‘Paul’s Song.’ In lyrical prose, author Susan Anderson portrays her adult son Paul, who is challenged with autism. Her story is at once a heartbreaking ballad of his lifelong struggles and an anthem in praise of his heroic fortitude. Though the narrative is focused on Paul, in the telling of the tale, his mother’s remarkable strength and wisdom are revealed as well―an inspiration for us all.” ―Paul Thigpen, editor for TAN Books (Charlotte, NC) and author of The Burden and A Dictionary of Quotes from the Saints
