    One thought on “There's More Than One Way Home”

    1. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. It's fast moving with well-drawn and credible characters The story of Anna gripped me--the tale of a mother in angst over her marriage and the charges against her ten-year-old son with Asperger. Though the author was inspired by Anna karenina, it doesn't follow strictly that plot. Nor is it a very-descriptive, stately literary-type book that can take me three or more months to read (or to decide I cannot finish). Nor, unlike some novels that fit a "plot-d [...]

    2. A mystery wrapped in a searing social commentary, with enough human interest attached that I never once felt that I was being lectured - this book was entertaining through and through, and I realized that by the end I'd learned a lot about the real world behind California politics, and the struggle, and humanity, of kids with autism. I really don't want anyone to think this is an "autism book," but instead just a really good and well-written novel.

    3. I won an ARC of this novel, which is a book I would not normally have chosen to read. However, I am glad that I did! It was very good and offered a unique perspective and a fascinating story. I was hooked within the first few pages and couldn't stop reading until I found out the truth. It was very moving and educational. If you are having doubts about this book, just go for it! I am glad I had the opportunity to read this book because I would have passed over it otherwise.

    4. There's More Than One Way Home by Donna Levin is absolutely stunning. The story is beautifully written, thought-provoking and brimming with complex characters. Book clubs should definitely check this one out -- there's something for everyone in this novel.

    5. Wow!! There's More Than One Way Home by Donna Levin is a touching and captivating story. I felt Anna's pain as she deals with her autistic son being caught in a terrible tragedy with a classmate. I highly recommend this book!

    6. Thanks to Netgalley, Chickadee Prince Books, and the author for a copy of the book to read and review, prior to its publication. A lively, involving, fast-moving read, with characters one cares about, and about whom the reader can't wait to find out what happens, all leavened (no pun intended!) by the author's trademark wit and sass! It combines the family dynamics and humor of the author's first novel, 'Extraordinary Means', with the mystery and political background of her second, 'California S [...]

    7. This novel is about a young man who is on the spectrum and is accused of committing a crime. But it is much more than that. It is a love story as well as a mystery. I have a daughter with intellectual disabilities, and as I read, what struck me was how honest the author portrayed the mother of the boy in recounting her frustrations—as well as the joys—of raising a child with special needs. Many times, when I might have been in a similar situation, it felt as if the author were reading my min [...]

    8. Finally a new book from Ms. Levin, the author of Extraordinary Means, after far too many years. This new novel works as a mystery, love story, incisive political satire and pointed social commentary - a big, funny, emotional roller coaster of a book from an author with many opinions about many things. The years have not dulled her prose. I only hope that we won't have to wait another couple of decades for her next novel.

    9. I won this book on . I find it a good look into how children with austism and disabilities are judge and mistreated. It also shows the strain having a child with disabilities can cause on a marriage and caregivers. I really recommend this book even if you do not have a child with a disability as it might enlighten your outlook and show just how far some people with go if they do not know or understand.

    10. This book should be a must-read for anyone with a child on the Autism spectrum, anyone who knows anyone with ASD, and anyone who might encounter someone with ASD -- which is, just about everyone. Levin writes engagingly about a mother determined to give her ASD son the same chances all kids have -- and the obstacles she has to confront. It's a tale of mystery and suspense, of family and romance. Check it out

    11. A terrific story - gripping, well written, with characters one comes to root for (well, most of them). A tragic accident on a school outing, and its resolution, carries us through the book. Around it is the story of a woman's growth, the struggles of parenting a son with Aspergers, a stressed marriage, and even a political campaign. Levin weaves these with confidence and dexterity.

    12. Deeply moving and gorgeously-crafted, I devoured every page. Donna Levin sidesteps tropes about parenting a child with autism and isn't afraid to confront complex issues and questions, while simultaneously weaving an intriguing and empathetic tale. I don't want to give anything away, but trust me when I say you won't be able to put this one down!

    13. there are so many laugh-out-loud lines in this well-written and witty novel, and how could that be when the plot involves a disabled child, a messy divorce, a grand jury indictment, and back-stabbing frenemies? this modern, fast-moving story is at once light-hearted and dead serious. oh and did i mention LOL funny?

    14. I absolutely loved this book! Such an amazing story that kept me up at night wanting to read just a few more pages. It made me laugh and cry. So good!

    15. This is such an emotional and fascinating story! This is perfect for anyone that loves stories that dive into the difficult decisions in life and the ripple effect they have on the people we love.

    16. A heart wrenching story yet told without an overload of sentimentality. Strong characters - good storyline and great writing. I loved it.

    17. A compelling and thrilling addition to the "Autism lit" category centered around a mother's worst nightmare. Wonderful treatment of Autism and its unique challenges for parents as well.
