Set between the summers of 1998 and 2005, Blue Sky July follows the story of Nia Wyn, a mother who battled against impossible odds to heal her son Joe, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy soon after he was born. Told by doctors that he would never walk, talk, see, or even recognize her, Wyn devoted her every waking moment to exploring alternative treatments."Beautifully written and will strike a chord with every parent. It will have you hooked from beginning to end."
Through an intimate portrayal of her day-to-day interactions with her son and partner-as well as her own internal struggles, perceptions, and celebrations-Wyn shares her own uplifting story of resilience in the face of tragedy.
"Joy, courage, and pain are inextricably linked in this memoir about a mother's unconditional love for her son...This book will leave you marveling at the unique relationship between mother and child."
"Compelling. A quiet classic."
-Yvonne Roberts, author of Shake
"A harrowing but inspiring story of love in the most difficult circumstances."
