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 and is now a patient. Will the boys still accept Buddy when they find out he's gay? And when Noah is hired, can he manage the challenges of caring for young people whose lives have been turned upside down by traumatic injury?

Meet the Author

Mary King takes a unique approach to writing medical novels, especially when her characters are confronted with disability issues. She has accumulated a wealth of information, having worked most all of her life as a caregiver. She gained valuable work experience in a spinal cord injury rehabilitation facility in the early eighties, as well as a cardio-pulmonary rehab center in that same decade. 

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. Her work also teaches compassion, tolerance and acceptance of all persons.

Ms King 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.
