Publisher's Summary

Meet Merlin. He's Lucy's bright, beautiful son - who just happens to be autistic. Since Merlin's father, the reserved, cerebral workaholic Jeremy, left them in the lurch shortly after Merlin's diagnosis, Lucy has made Merlin the centre of her world. Struggling with the joys and tribulations of raising her adorable yet challenging son, Lucy doesn't have room for any other man in her life ... so why bother trying to find one?
When Lucy realises she's becoming increasingly cynical about life in general, she finally resolves to dip a toe back into the world of dating. Things don't go quite to plan, yet just as Lucy is resolved to a life of singledom once more, the most imperfectly perfect man for her and her son lands on her doorstep. But then, so does Jeremy, begging for forgiveness and a second chance....

A Mind Blowing Exercise in Love!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

This book opened my mind to some of the joys and heartache of having an autistic child but it was written in such a way, and with such wonderful humour, that I didnt know wether to laugh or cry.The verbal wit of this author is both amazing and brilliant and her way of telling a tale makes you feel that the story is a bio. I believed every word.

Intriguing and exciting story about autism

Tremendous good story that really held my attention to the final page. I loved the family dynamics, and the array of strong characters ,
