Her courageous story covers Kevin's life from age six when his TS tics first appeared to his late twenties when he transformed from a violent man into a peaceful person.
What Reviewers Have Said
"In her story of courage, strife, and hope, Patricia Heenan shares her process of living through her son's severe behavioral disability. Her words are as moving as the music which she and her son find
healing. The silence of a soul screaming for help is deafening to the person who loves him. Experience Kevin´s breaking of his silence thorough the music and Patricia's surrendering to the art of loving."
-- Hope Young RMT-BC, Founder Center for Music Therapy, Austin, Texas
"My disorder affected me like Kevin´s did - tics, rage attacks, and obsessions. I'm seeking music therapy to experience the benefits described in this book."
-- Adam Reller 19-year old with Tourette Syndrome
