Summary

Last summer, Katherine May was approaching 40, feeling overwhelmed by motherhood and lacking connection with others, lost in a world of inundation and expectation. She had always felt different, but this feeling was new. She wanted to get out, get free and find herself again - and so set about walking the rugged 450 mile South West Coast Path. However, this journey uncovered more than she had ever imagined. 

By chance, en route to the walk, Katherine heard a radio show, and the guests were speaking about Asperger's Syndrome. Things began to fall into place - could this explain the whiteouts, the excruciating confusion around social contact, the electric feeling of every living thing? After a formal diagnosis, Katherine began to unravel this new perspective of her life. Through her physical journey came an emotional one - of accepting who she is and moving forward. It's not just about walking or Asperger's; this is one woman's journey to feel free within herself, something that everyone can relate to.

A walk along a familiar path

As I began listening to Katherine May describe her journey I could feel her anger. I worried that this was going to be a "woe is me and it's every other f*****s fault" kind of read. Then as I listened on I realised just how real her story was. There was no glamour just bare faced truth . A truth so readily available from those with asd.
And an all too familiar story. This was beautifully written and read. And a great read for anyone struggling with the late diagnosis of asd. **********
