Itís a motherís unwavering fear, a worry constantly playing in the back of the mind. Is my child developing normally? Is everything okay? A Wild Ride Up the Cupboards intertwines two stories from two different generations in a motherís desperate struggle to free her child from the world he finds himself locked within.

Rachel is happily married and has two beautiful, intelligent boys, with another child on the way. Her eldest son, Edward, however, has begun a descent into his own inner world. Once a happy child, inquisitive and full of life, he no longer speaks, has trouble sleeping, and the sparkle in his eye has been extinguished. Desperate for answers, Rachel begins her journey into the world of autism and the spectrum of developmental disorders.

In her search for answers, Rachel begins to dig into her family history and asks her husband, Jack, to do the same. While Rachelís journey into her family history brings connections to family members and information, Jack finds only heartache and harsh realities. In desperation to free her child from his prison, Rachel searches everywhere for answers and is willing to try anything, at any cost.

A Wild Ride Up the Cupboards is a heartbreaking search for diagnoses in a medical system that doesnít always have the answers, a families struggle to survive the stress, and the lengths to which a mother will go for the love of a child. A Wild Ride Up the Cupboards is a well-written and highly recommended read.
