Kyle Graham is scared. Not of monsters under the bed like any average six-year-old, but of just about everything. And he can't communicate his fears. His mother Nicola, knows that Kyle wants to be left alone, safe and secure in his autistic world. But she also fears for his future if he continues to reject all emotional interaction. Nicola's fierce determination to break into Kyle's world has placed an intolerable strain on her marriage, as her husband Rob, although equally devoted to his son, is frustrated by Nicola's relentless challenging of Kyle's condition. Into this maelstrom of conflict comes Thomas, a golden retriever puppy. Nothing could prepare Nicola and Rob for how Thomas unlocks the door to a personality they never knew their son had. What follows is a fascinating and moving tale of two parents who, at breaking point, find hope they never dared to dream of. Gritty and real, funny and heart-warming, After Thomas is an uplifting and moving true story.
