Paper in the Wind by Olivia Mason-Charles

Paper in the Wind: Autism in the Wake of Tragedy is a memorable story written by Olivia Mason-Charles.

Alexa McKenzie is not just an autistic child. She is also a survivor of a horrific incident. His father, Michael, decides to leave the past and move to Seattle with his daughter. With endless encouragement and moral support from his parents, Michael raises his daughter alone through series of therapies. With infinite patience and unconditional love, he breathes and lives for Alexa. After a few years, Alexa meets Jonathan and they become the best of friends.

This is not just a book about autism. It is a celebration of life, love and friendship. It shows how selflessness can get through the thickest of barriers and the most complicated of hurdles. It is a lovely mixture of love between father and daughter, between father and son, between men friends, between girl friends, and between boy and girl.

I am so glad I read this book and I am so thankful to the author for sharing this beautiful story.

Congratulations to Olivia Mason-Charles (@omasoncharles) on such a marvelous book!

  1. Hi Olivia. I'm only part-way through your book but wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying it, especially the interactions between Alexa and Michael.

    This struck a particular accord with me because we write similar books. My first novel is about a single dad raising a son with autism. It's free on Amazon if you'd like to take a look.

    Best wishes in the work that you're doing.
