Having a partner with Asperger Syndrome can feel like a roller-coaster ride for the neurotypical spouse — riding high one moment on the spouse’s charming quirkiness, only soon to spiral downward, exhausted and discouraged — sometimes by the very same traits, which have suddenly taken new forms of expression.

In this charming and well-written book, the author combines research on autism spectrum disorders and her vast knowledge of literature, pop music, and philosophy with accounts of daily life on a large dairy farm with three sons and a husband with an ASD. In sharing the ups, the downs, the growth, and the regression in their particular AS-NT journey, the author hopes that others on a similar path may find humor, recognition, and ways to view the unique life of loving an Aspergian from a new angle. The book will also appeal to those curious about ASD and how it affects someone’s life and love. Any reader in a long-term relationship will resonate to the challenges and joys of living in such close relationship with another.
