PRAISE FOR ATWELL’S DEBUT MEMOIR, “LOVING LINDSEY:RAISING A DAUGHTER WITH SPECIAL NEEDS”
“Atwell’s evocative descriptions provide added depth to the characters, particularly Lindsey, whose voice emanates from the pages. A brutally honest, affecting memoir of family resilience.” ~Kirkus Reviews
"Loving Lindsey is an unwavering and valuable motherhood memoir about the way intellectual disabilities manifest in daily life and affect relationships." ~Foreward Clarion Reviews
"Raising a child with an intellectual disability is tough. When that child becomes an adult, the challenges can be insurmountable. Linda Atwell puts the spotlight on her daughter Lindsey—and herself—and never wavers, not in parenting her child or in telling her story. I couldn't put the book down." ~Amy Silverman, author of My Heart Can't Even Believe It: A Story of Science, Love, and Down Syndrome
“Ms. Atwell writes with clarity and contemplation through the triumphs and tragedies of raising someone with special needs. At times funny and always candid, Loving Lindsey is a book every woman should enjoy reading, no matter where they fall on its relationship spectrum.” ~Kathleen Cremonesi, author of Love in the Elephant Tent: How Running Away with the Circus Brought me Home and 2016 Gold Medal Independent Publisher Awards for Coming of Age/Family Legacy
