    A great book not only for those with a spouse on spectrum, but those with family members on the spectrum. Dr. Marshack brilliantly weaves the narratives along with commentary and "lessons learned." She is also pragmatic and recognizes that sometimes divorce is the result, and also has a section that goes over separation, and advises that it's not necessarily a bad thing.
