Adult Fiction LEIMBAC
Summary: When Melanie Marsh learns that her son, Daniel, is autistic, she becomes determined to fight to teach Daniel to speak, play, and become as "normal" as possible. Melanie's enchanting disposition has helped her weather some of life's storms, but Daniel's autism may just push her over the brink, destroying her resolute optimism and bringing her unsteady marriage to its end. DANIEL ISN'T TALKING is a deeply moving story of a family in crisis. What sets it apart from most fiction about difficult subjects is Marti Leimbach's ability to write about a sad and frightening situation with a seamless blend of warmth, compassion, and humor.
