Autism Reality

Goody Bledsoe by Heather Doherty

I am breaking with the autism theme of this site briefly to introduce my wife Heather’s first published novel – Goody Bledsoe. Attached is a brief description from the publisher’s (Oberon)’s web site.

Goody Bledsoe

Goody Bledsoe is the story of a young girl who is sent as an orphan to live with her aunt and uncle on a farm in rural New Brunswick . Heather Doherty says of it: “This is a story of survival, of choosing to survive in spite of the darkness, in order to find the light that lies beyond.” In another mood she says: “Goody Bledsoe is a novel of daring, daring to see what lies within, even when that knowledge hurts like hell.”

This is what David Adams Richards has to say about the book: “ Heather Doherty has written an exceptionally moving and brilliant first novel, a startlingly permanent novel that must be read.” Heather Doherty was born in 1964 and grew up in New Brunswick , where she still lives with her husband and two sons. As this is written she’s working in the local library and writing her second novel.
