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.
A very enjoyable read that was heartwarming and an emotional read as well. Rachelle Ayala has a way with her words and pulls you into the story. I was hooked from the beginning and didn't want to put this story down.
I really enjoyed reading about Jamie and Ryan. These are characters that you can really enjoy reading about and like. Ryan was sweet and I liked him the whole way through the book. Jamie I really liked as well felt sorry for her at times but she was a strong woman and I was rooting for these two.
Rachelle Ayala is one great author I will always recommend. She never disappoints a job well. Can't wait for more.
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
I think this is the first book in a very long time, that I have outright boo-hooed at the ending. It was fully emotional throughout the entire story, but that ending got me. The characters wove their way into my heart from the start. Their strengths and fears were easily felt. Rachelle Ayala always brings to life each of the characters in her stories, but I believe she has outdone herself with this family.
