Owl Song at Dawn by Emma Claire Sweeney. Published by Trafalgar Square

Inspired by the author’s own life, this is the story of twin girls, Edie and Maeve. Edie was born with CP and other handicaps, but Maeve and the rest of the family love her desperately and don’t see her as handicapped. The family runs Sea View Lodge, and when Maeve is old enough she takes the reins and creates a beautiful retreat popular with handicapped visitors. Now 80, Maeve reminisces about her childhood with Edie and the book moves back and forth from the past to the present, highlighting  both the positive changes that have occurred since then, and some of the drawbacks. A sweet, sad story about the strength of love
