-- "It Burns a Lovely Light," has been added to the Autism Speaks Resource Library under the Family Books section. Released in the fall of 2013, the novel about a brave autistic teen and the patch-work family he helps bring together continues to receive rave reviews and national recognition.
In an instant, the James family's tight-knit family implodes. Grief stricken and overwhelmed, William and his older sister, Farley, move into their Aunt Claire's falling-down boarding house overlooking the city of Pittsburgh. Along with the eccentric boarders of Bridge Manor, they begin to heal - until tradegy once again looms.
"William James has captured hearts around the world," said Ms. Pennington. "His raw honesty, innate dignity and courage will warm - and break - your heart. William will stay in your head long after you've finished the novel."
"It Burns a Lovely Light" is now available on Amazon, Kindle, Nook, Barnes&Noble, Apple, iTunes, Scribs, libraries and select bookstores.
