This book touched me deeply. I have grandsons who are on the spectrum. I had custody of one. The author worked very hard to present an accurate picture of what autism can be like. Autism can be different for every person on the spectrum which makes it an extremely difficult subject to write about. I commend the author for her decision to tackle it. Autism is on the rise but whether that is because there are more cases or because there is more awareness is up for debate. My personal opinion is that it is a combination of the two. Ms Ayala, in choosing to write a story where autism is included, helps greatly with awareness. That she chose to make it central to the plot and took pains to make it as accurate as she could, helps greatly with understanding. I am deeply grateful she treated this subject with the attention and care that she did.
Ms Ayala wrote an important story that is heartbreaking yet heartwarming. Reading it will take you on an emotional roller coaster where you will laugh, cry, cheer and boo. You will feel happiness, despair, anger and, above all, hope because hope shines through every page. Those of us who have lived with autism, or are living with it, know it is love and hope that carries us through the bad moments. Understanding from family, friends and especially strangers can change a bad day into a bad moment and leave us feeling supported instead of alone. The story is the story of two people with very real problems who fight for love. It is also the story of a family fighting for love, understanding and acceptance. In my mind, it is one of the most important stories you may read.
Jaime has found contentment within the confines of her small life. She is able to love and care for her sons while enjoying the little things that life gifts her with. Her youngest son’ has graced her life with many challenges and yet a sense of accomplishment as they deal with and manage his autism. Ryan has enjoyed his cherished and prized his baseball career. He can’t believe where life has led him, and yet a part of him still feels empty and lacking. When Jaime’s small family and Ryan collide on a baseball outing, neither of these precious lives will ever be the same again. When a door closes, we have to learn that doesn’t stop our world from turning, but instead it just send us in a different direction then we initially intended.
Watching Jaime, Ben, Drew, and Ryan navigate this interesting dynamic stole my heart at every turn. Even during their struggles, they still fought for a hope that they didn’t always understand and yet they knew they didn’t want to lose out on. This is a beautiful story fraught with drops of everlasting sunshine, dipped in unmoveable hope, and saturated with unwavering love. I guarantee that this is a story that will live in your heart for a very long time to come as you sort through every implication and message found within these precious pages.
I can’t get over just how diverse and deep Rachelle Ayala’s talent run. She always finds new ways to amazing and capture my attention. I learn something new and wonderful as I read and savor each of her stories. I will never ever take any of her books or lessons or messages for granted.
This story walks you through the struggles of a mom that has to cope with parenting a child with autism while dealing with an overbearing egotistical ex-husband and spreading her attention between her sons and learning to find love in a relationship. Playing for the Save will give you hope, love, tears and smiles as you delve into a story that will capture your attention.
Rachelle Ayala has written a book that kept my emotions on a roll from the beginning to the end. It definitely draws on your heart strings while at the same time will twists your emotions all over the place. I was drawn into this book from the very start and could not put it down. So many emotions put together in one book that causes an emotional overload. You will finish this book with faith and hope in love along with a sense of loyalty and compassion for people that give up everything for love.
I recommend Playing for the Save if you enjoy reading a book that gives you hope and love and will keep your attention from start to finish.
