Editorial Reviews

Review

“Lohrer draws a beautiful love triangle with three dimensional characters and an interesting supporting cast... A book worth reading a second time!”—InD'tale Magazine

“A bright new talent.”—London Times best-selling author Katie Fforde

“Susan is so funny, she had me howling.”—best-selling author MaryLu Tyndall

From the Author

Dear Reader,

I believe the heart of all fiction is a grain of real life.

In Rocky Road, one of the characters, Will, faces many challenges as a person who has autism. While autism doesn't happen to be a part of my everyday life, I'm the mom of an amazing young woman who has Down syndrome. From the day she was born, she's been teaching everyone around her a new way of looking at the world—and that is the grain of real life in this story. (She's graduating from high school the day after this book comes out—two launches in one week!)

Downs and autism are pretty much on opposite ends of the spectrum, but the crazy mix of emotions inside anyone who cares about, well, anyone—but especially about a family member who has special needs—is exactly the same.

Ancy, Rocky Road's heroine, faces her own set of challenges as a person who cares deeply about a family member who has autism. Do I shelter him? Protect him? Encourage him to do anything he wants to do? What if he fails? What if he succeeds? Every day, every decision, brings the question Am I making this choice for him... or for myself?

And of course, true to real life, hilarity ensues when two people think differently about a given situation. The more dire the situation, the more we realize that humor can help get us through it. Which is why, although Rocky Road touches on serious subject matter, it refused to be told as anything but a romantic comedy.

Does someone you love have special needs? Has humor carried you along a rocky road or two? I salute you!

May your life be filled with family, love, and laughter.

Susan Lohrer
