Hana’s life is on pause. She’s between homes, between jobs, between a rock and a hard place. She and her special-needs son, Isaac, 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

—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.”

“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.”
