Overview

Dr. Lauren McFadden and her physical therapist husband Bryan leave their prestigious careers at St. Michael's Rehabilitation Center in Northampton, Massachusetts, after a final falling-out with the chief administrator. The couple seizes the opportunity, starting with their new home in Lenox, in the Berkshire Hills. They're ready to open the doors of the wheelchair accessible estate to homeless and profoundly disabled young people who need rehab. Bryan and Lauren soon discover, however, that it's going to take much more than physical and occupational therapy to repair the lives of Adam, Devon and Philip. The boys settle into their new surroundings, but then life tosses in another challenge-the college student hired to help around the house becomes the victim of a hate crime-is severely beaten-and is now a patient at the estate. Will the boys still accept Buddy when they find out he's gay? And when Noah is hired, can he move beyond his own scarred past and adjust to his new career as a therapist?

Meet the Author

Mary King takes a unique approach to writing medical novels, especially when her characters are confronted with disability issues. The McFadden Series invites readers into the realistic world of daily living activities, rehabilitation therapies and personal challenges as experienced by a special group of young people and the professional couple who cares for them.

The purpose of Ms King's work is not only to give insight into disability medical situations, but is also a way to show readers that life can be quite productive and blissfully "normal" even when a young person in the home has special medical needs. Teenagers are going to be teenagers, no matter what.

Ms King's interest in physical medicine began in 1982, while working at a spinal cord injury rehab center in Jacksonville, Florida. She grew up in an environment where disability concepts were part of everyday life. Mary King currently resides in Florida, where she continues to work on her novel series.
