Product description

About the Author

Peter was born with Down syndrome. He grew to manhood unable to speak and communicate his needs. Then, in his 30's he learned to communicate through a system known as Facilitated Communication and showed himself to be a highly intelligent, sensitive and artistic man. Courageously, in 2002 he became the whistle-blower in one of the worst cases of institutional sexual and emotional abuse in Queensland. He is a published children's author and an acknowledged painter, devoted to throwing light on the tragedies that can befall the disabled.

As a young woman Betty was training to be an opera singer. Instead she married Justin a sheep-farmer on the New England Tablelands of New South Wales and was introduced to a life of struggle and hardship leavened with the joy of family. Her sixth child, Peter, was born with Down syndrome. In 'The Sun in my Heart Betty,' now a vigorous ninety years of age, tells the remarkable story of their woven-together life, from heart break to a transcendent breakthrough. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
