Somewhere Over the Sea: A Father's Letter to His Autistic Son
“In this deeply moving and elegantly written book, Halfdan W. Freihow takes Gabriel, his young autistic son, on a journey through the full spectrum of human experience. With great love, profound tenderness, and gentle wit, Freihow captures Gabriel’s triumphs and disappointments, his joy and frustration, while struggling to help him make sense of a world that he himself does not, and cannot, fully comprehend. A powerful, honest, and achingly beautiful narrative, describes a complex, loving relationship that is sometimes fraught with misunderstanding, but always bolstered by unconditional love. A must-read for all parents.” (www.barnesandnobel.com)
This is not your typical autism parent book.
First this is a dad’s perspective, second it’s
not doom and glum. It is a sincere and loving
account of a fathers love for his child. It’s
not all rainbows and flowers he does show the
hard parts but shares the rewarding aspects of
raising a child. There is a very brief
explanation of autism and ADHD at the end.
Great story that everyone should read. Gabriel
is shown as a real person, a person with
feelings, a person who thinks, feels, and
