Summary

In 1997, writer Patricia Stacey and her husband, Cliff, learned that their six-month-old son, Walker, might never walk or talk, or even hear or see. Unwilling to accept this grim prognosis, they embarked on a five-year odyssey that took them into alternative medicine and the newest brain research-and toward a new understanding of autism. Finally this search brought them to pioneering developmental psychiatrist Stanley Greenspan, who helped them save their son and bring him into full contact with the world. At once heart-wrenching and hopeful, Patricia Stacey's enthralling memoir traces the experience of a remarkable family who struggled courageously in order to give their son a rich and emotionally full life.
