Rachael Lee Harris spent her early childhood locked in an autistic fog. Rachael's determination to take her place in society led her down many paths, from beauty therapist to Catholic nun, from mother and wife to divorcee and working mum. Today, she is a psychotherapist specialising in helping others on the autism spectrum.
"Do yourself a great favor and read this book! Rachael has written about her life in a candid, considered, and often beautifully whimsical way that is hugely enjoyable! I laughed out loud, I cried, and I felt inspired. Mothers of girls and women with Asperger's syndrome will especially love this book because Rachael is so eloquent in her descriptions about having Asperger's syndrome, and she is a great role model to inspire all girls and women on the spectrum. But the book has a broader appeal also. Read the book to celebrate with Rachael the gorgeous diversity of humankind. She has a fascinating story to tell and she is a wonderful example to all of us in how to live."

"I have known Rachael since she was a young girl, and now I have the privilege to know her as a mature woman. What a wonder she has worked - not only in her writing but also in her life! To have discovered the blessing within what others would describe as an affliction - Asperger's syndrome. She is a stand-out example of a life well lived. Enjoy her story, as I did! Be moved by her courage!"
- Fr. Francis A. Gerry, Society of the Divine Word Missionaries at Marburg
"Rachael Harris has written a beautiful and personal story to inspire and calm. This shows, sometimes amusingly, Asperger's as the perfect springboard for spiritual growth."
