Across An Aqueous Moon: Travels in Autism explores parenting a child diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, a condition that affects 1 in 55 children in the United States. In this moving and inspirational debut, Cynthia J. Patton--single mother, attorney, autism advocate, and founder of the nonprofit organization Autism A to Z--faces adoption, autism, abandonment, divorce, and dating. It's a story in poems that examines upended dreams, discarded expectations, and unforeseen joys as it reveals the power of human resilience. The spare, elegant poems illuminate the complex, hidden world of autism where "hope blooms amidst the grass of doubt" and shadows of grief give way to the light of a mother's fierce, shining love.
