Review: Words Get in the Way by Nan Rossiter

ISBN: 978-0-7582-4668-4
Format: Trade Paperback
April 2012

From the author of The Gin & Chowder Club comes an exquisitely heartfelt and uplifting novel that explores the infinite reach of a mother’s love—and the gift of second chances…
The modest ranch house where Callie Wyeth grew up looks just as she remembers it—right down to the well-worn sheets in the linen closet. But in the years since Callie lived here, almost everything else has changed. Her father, once indomitable, is in poor health. And Callie is a single mother with a beautiful little boy, Henry, who has just been diagnosed with autism.
Returning to this quiet New Hampshire community seems the best thing to do, for both her father and her son’s sake. Even if it means facing Linden Finch, the one she loved and left for reasons she’s sure he’ll never forgive. Linden is stunned that Callie is back—and that she has a son. Yet in the warm, funny relationship that develops between Henry and Linden’s menagerie of rescued farm animals, Callie begins to find hope. Not just that her son might break through the wall of silence separating him from the world, but that she too can make a new start amid the places and people that have never left her heart…


   I loved this story!
  The story of Callie and her little boy Henry, is so sweet.  Henry has just been diagnosed with Autism and while Callie dosent know that much about autism yet.., she understands what her Son is saying to her. 
They go back to visit Callie's father, who is not doing well. While Callie and Henry settle in at her father's home, she hopes to find her good friend Linden. They have a romantic past, and both of them hope to rebuild their friendship, even though quite a bit of time has passed since they last saw each other.
Linden has two friendly and helpful dogs that help him on his farm, and when they meet Henry, a strong bond forms between them.  
With warm characters and a friendly "small town" setting, this is a book that any fan of romance would love!

"Autism speaks".....its time to listen.
