So, I started Carolyn Parkhust's book Harmony at bedtime and was up till 3am, even though I knew I had to be up at 7. Really, the only reason I stopped was that I didn't want it to end. But end it did, and I now want everyone I know to read it!

This is the story of a family so dedicated to supplying their autistic daughter with resources they that they totally change their lives, quitting their home in DC to become residents and supporters of an idyllic camp in New Hampshire run by a child-behavior guru.

Parkhurst nails it. From being a dedicated and confused parent to a kid on the spectrum, to the effect it has on her marriage and other (non-autistic) child, she hits every emotion squarely on the head. Wow.

Then, I found Martha Frankel's interview with Parkhurst on Woodstock book talk radio - also a wow.

I'm heartily recommending both!
