British TV reporter Ron Onions was based in New York at a momentous period of US history, covering the moon landing and the assassination of Martin Luther King. Yet at the same time as his high-flying career was taking this transatlantic turn, he was facing tough choices at home: his younger daughter, four-year-old Lulu, had been born without a thyroid gland, and her resulting severely disruptive symptoms posed a huge challenge to her caring family.
Follow the Onions family's eventful lives in this memoir, as the three people closest to Lulu - her father, mother and older sister Sarah - alternately narrate their stories and share their experiences of life with Lulu. As Ron's career goes from strength to strength at home and abroad, he and his family try to find the most suitable means of caring for Lulu - an intensely frustrating process, bringing only partial success as she is moved from one specialised residential care facility to another.
For any family coping with disability, this heartfelt and compassionate story will comfort and inspire.
