This author tells a very personal and candid story...

Review done by Tiffany

 Title: Lonely Girl, Gracious God

Author: Lauri Khodabandehloo





About The Author: Chicken Soup for the Soul contributor Lauri Khodabandehloo shares her very personal and heart-tugging story of raising a daughter with autism during a time when doctors were just learning about the disability themselves.

The Review: Lauri knew her child was different, even before she gave birth Lauri thought something was wrong. When Lauri’s fourth daughter Farema was born Lauri had a sense that Farema was different. Farmea responded differently to sounds and displayed odd behavior toward her mother and her entire family. This story recounts exactly what Lauri wen through trying to raise a child with a disability during a time when autism was just beginning to be researched and understood.

Laurie’s strong faith in God, patience and perseverance would bring her and her family full circle dealing with the ups and downs of raising an autistic child  in a time when the doctors didn’t know much autism. This very personal story definitely tugged at my heartstrings.

This was a very touching book, I couldn’t put it down. I kept reading because I was eager to know how little Fee’s life turned out.  All I have to say is this story is truly enduring and you will be touched by Laurie’s story. Thanks so much to Lauri for telling such a personal and candid story.

Buy a copy of this book for yourself from Amazon.

I was sent a free copy of this book for review purposes. The above thoughts are my own. I was not monetarily compensated to give a positive review.
