A relatively quick read (128pp all in), the book is an anthology of vignettes from her life starting by when she first met her then not yet diagnosed AS husband. She presents ideas on how she has made her marriage work, in a style that heavily draws on Tony Attwood's writings on relationships. Something that is annoying about this book, reading it as someone on the spectrum as opposed to a family member is an overuse of the phrase "theory of mind." Nonetheless, I would overall consider this a good read for those with a loved one on the spectrum.
