Overview

Hana’s life is on pause. She’s between homes, between jobs, between a rock and a hard place. She and Isaac, her son with special needs, are running from a painful past, and she’s looking to the future with not much hope. And then she meets Pastor Matthew Schofield.

Matt loves his books, his writing, and his small Oklahoma congregation. His life is studious and predictable, just the way he likes it. When he meets Hana and Isaac, who are anything but predictable, his world is forever changed. As Matt forms a surprising bond with Isaac, Hana is challenged to view God and His promises in a whole new light.

Thoughtful and eloquent, Loving Isaac is a story of compassion and trust that will renew your faith in the power of God to work change in both big and small ways.

 

Praise for Loving Isaac

“A charming and well-crafted tale of family, compassion, and acceptance.”
Kirkus Reviews 

“A tender story of failure, forgiveness, and relationships all wrapped up in a mother’s love for her special needs son and a heavenly Father’s care for His precious children, both young and old.”
—Kim Marxhausen, educational psychologist and author

“In a world where autistic children are too often underestimated and misunderstood, [Kaufman] paints a portrait of hope and love, and by letting us know and understand Isaac and how he sees the world, she gives dignity to those who have this condition.”

“Timely and relatable”
—Kim E. Bestian, author of Blueprints for Children’s Ministry

“A touching story of resilience and a reminder of God’s providence”

“A beautiful story that grabs you at the first page and won’t let go until the end.”
—Clarion Fritsche, missionary and homeschooler

“A compassionate, inside look at autism and the challenges and joys of loving someone on the autism spectrum. Loving Isaac is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand and help.”

Beautiful, rewarding book.

This was not an easy read, for me. I stopped after almost every chapter just to absorb what had happened and adjust my emotions before reading the next one. However, it was a wonderful, rewarding read and I know I will return to it in years to come. Heather Kaufman has an amazing way with words, weaving them into a world that feels very real, in good ways and bad. I saw a lot of myself in characters in this book, which was both reassuring and a good wake-up call to avoid some behavior I've lapsed into. Behavior like always talking to the people I already know at church. Just because I'm shy doesn't mean I can't be kind and welcome new people. Time to work on that.

Love and Second Chances

Heather Kaufman does a marvelous job of what it’s like to have a child on the autism spectrum. Being a mother myself who has a child on the spectrum, I could identify a lot with Hana and the joys and struggles that come along with it. This book is filled with love, community, understanding and second chances.
