Summary
"Hazard is a poignant, unflinching memoir of the emotional intricacies of growing up with a severely disabled sibling. Margaret Combs shows how her Southern Baptist family coped with the lived reality of autism in an era of ignorance and shame, the 1950s through the 1970s, and shares her own tragedy and anguish of being torn between helping her brother and yearning for her own life. Initially fueled by a wish that her brother had never been born, the author eventually arrives to a deeper place of gratitude for this same brother, whom she loves and who loves her in return"--
