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.

    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.

    Touching

    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.

    Wow! Totally unique and insightful!

    I can count on one hand the number of books that totally wow me - but this is definitely one of them! The story grabbed me from page one, leaving me unable to put the book down, as I had to find out what came next. The writer's style is totally engaging and the story left me thinking afterwards. I fully encourage everybody to pick this book up - you will not be disappointed.
