Six Houses Down

By Kari Rimbey


Sharon Webster’s husband, Bill, is still in her life, but after their son is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Bill accepts a promotion that requires lengthy absences.

When a precocious, red-headed little girl climbs the backyard fence to play, Sharon is more than willing to accommodate a friend for her son. The little intruder becomes a crucial link to a new friendship with an elderly black couple during Bill’s long absences.

Two days after Bill makes a surprise return, their son slips out of the house and is lost in historic Washington D.C. As they search for Stewart, Sharon is forced to rely on both her new friends and the husband she believes no longer loves her. What she doesn’t realize is that her new friends recognize her unspoken hurts and, with God’s help, are determined to help her.

Book Takeaway:

When we think the worst is upon us, God is still at work.His provision could be so close,and the need to be self-sufficient can do more harm than good. Also, communication is important in any relationship.

Why the author wrote this book:

Real life offers challenges, and marriages aren't happy-ever-after stories. C.S. Lewis said, "To love at all is to be vulnerable."
While this story is inspired by my childhood foster-brother with ASD, I wanted to portray what can be gained through love, trust, and forgiveness.
