Her dying father calls her unique, doctors have diagnosed that her brain is wired wrong, and most say she's plain simple, but Eve Hayes, a young Down's syndrome woman, feels only that she's different. Then, on 21 July 1972-Belfast's Bloody Friday-Eve encounters the captivating Esther, who ferries Eve on a sequence of illuminating, metaphysical journeys.

From the Publisher

Being different does not disqualify them from life’s lessons. “The Silver Mist” follows Eve Hayes, down syndrome-afflicted individual who through meeting Esther, finds that in spite of her disorder, she has much to learn and is taken on a spiritual and enlightening journey. Touching on spirituality and those with mental disabilities, “The Silver Mist” is a touching and unique read, highly recommended.

Once in a while I come across a significant story, uniquely told. The Silver Mist is one of those stories. The author's writing style will pull you in and not let go.

To create a young female protagonist with Down syndrome is feat enough. To attempt it as an adult male author is downright gutsy. And to pull it off with panache is nothing less than a triumph. Matin Treanor accomplishes this and more in The Silver Mist. A charming, touching, unique presentation from a man who displays a good heart and a sensitive soul.
