Overview
"A Short Walk Home" is a heartfelt and inspirational memoir of a father raising and ultimately losing a child to the neurological disorder adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). Exploring the full extent to which a disease like ALD can shape and affect a life, as both David Cry and his family try to come to grips with the inevitable conclusion to their struggles, "A Short Walk Home" captures the helplessness and anger that every parent feels at being unable to save their children.
Presented in prose both simple and true, "A Short Walk Home" shows us how to find peace and acceptance at a time when we need it most. Drawn from the author s personal experience, as well as years of working with individuals and families suffering from ALD, Cry's story is at once both very personal, and very accessible a story of appreciating what you have, making the most of the time you have left, and finding solace in the face of grief.
Contrasting sadness with hope, vulnerability with strength, and frustration with acceptance, "A Short Walk Home "demonstrates that grief, no matter how great, can give way to a greater understanding."
