THE EBOOK BESTSELLER ABOUT FATHERS, SONS AND LOVE

Ten-year-old Jonah lives in a world of his own.
He likes colours and feathers and the feel of fresh air on his skin.
He dislikes sudden loud noises and any change to his daily routine.
Jonah has never spoken, yet somehow he communicates better than all of the adults in his life.

Inspired by the author's experiences with his own son, SHTUM is a novel about three generations of a family learning to get along.

'A book with true heart and soul' Joanna Cannon

'Whether you think Shtum is a novel about autism or about marriage (it's both, by the way), you will agree that it is, in the end, a love story infused with wit, charm, and a deep appreciation for the complex beauty of damaged souls.' Jonathan Tropper

Fantastic read

Such a great book and easy read . Heart felt at times and also funny.

Touching

I've read several books like the curious incident and the Rosie project. All very well written and although have laugh out loud moments they touch the soul as anyone with an autistic child can relate to the content.
A very moving book highly recommended and hopefully another book will follow.
Thank you I throughly enjoyed it.
