While this book was beautiful as well as being a useful look at autism before we began to understand it I think it is completely inappropriate for the age range for whom it was written Reviews suggest grades 5 8 The serious subject matter references to sex and a resulting pregnancy and a very horrific ending make this book only appropriate for a YA audience That audience must also be comfortable with a dark tale that has no real resolution In general I found this book too gloomy to be enjoyable

He was different from others Jacob Stolz walked head down large feet shuffling along the dirt roads He did not talk but when engaged made noises to imitate his surroundings The sound of the great gristmill grindstone as it crushed the grain was expressed as shooda shooda shooda The marbles as they hit each other were click click click Touched is what people said about Jacob Pointing to their heads they said he was touched Representing protection from the outside world his firmly placed cap rarely left his head A lover of animals he took comfort in their softness and beautyShe was different from others Unlike the Stolz family13 year old Katy Thatcher was a child of privilege Unlike Jacob she walked confidently Her insatiable curiosity prompted her to engage with surroundings A precocious child this daughter of the small town doctor had a keen sense of social injustice and an intuitive need to understand situations and peopleIn 1908 the world was different The new fangled automobile was rare and for the very rich The girls of poor farm families were hired help for those who lived in the large housesJacob s two sisters are different from each other Peggy the kind sensible sister is a maid to the Thatcher family and Nellie the brassy dramatic one scrubs the floors next door at the Bishop householdThe Thatcher family is different They welcome Peggy as a family member Their daughter Katy is taught to respect and includeThe Bishop family is differentThe hired help have a room in the cold winter attic Their eldest son Paul knows that brassy dramatic women have a role and will do his bidding and the hay in the barn is the place they belongLowry is a magical writer The book is filled with paradoxes and as dramatic events spin out of control we watch as the Thatcher Bishop and Stolz families collideWhile the reader is awed by the initial softness of a slower life time in history the author is masterful in the juxtaposition of harsh realities of class of both fair and unjust treatment of people and the perception of differentnessHighly recommended
