Letter to Louis [9780571335633]

(2 reviews) Write a Review
This is a memoir about hope - hope in others, hope in systems, and hope for the future.I've never quite known where to begin when someone asks me what I've been up to. I've never quite known how to explain what our daily life is like. I wanted to write how it is in order to give others a greater understanding of disability and caring. And to be totally honest, I wanted to write something that would make people consider being Louis's friend.So here is me introducing you: Louis, this is your story. Readers, this is my son.
AUTHOR: Alison White grew up in Sheffield, studied in Leeds and moved to Glasgow, where she set up her own landscape architecture business. In 1996 Alison's first child, Louis, was delivered by emergency caesarean section at thirty-two weeks' gestation. He suffered severe brain damage, and has cerebral palsy and learning difficulties. In 2003 Alison left Scotland to live in remote South West Wales with her husband, Greg, and their three children, Louis, Natasha and Jack, where they still live today. There they built a house to meet Louis's needs and were able to allow their two younger children to run wild.

    You won't be able to put it down, you will so want to find out what happened next. You will cry and laugh and fall in love with Louis and his amazing mother. Great for book groups because there is so much to talk about.

    A moving story of a Mum and her disabled son. This book had me laughing at one moment and crying at the next.
