A Pocket Full of Days, Part 1

MIKE CAVANAGH

When Mike begins a relationship with Jo, how could he guess that the next 25 years would be extraordinary? A pair of Hansel and Gretel misfits, their on and off relationship is a classic story of ‘can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em’.

As Mike copes with Jo’s fight to overcome her own demons, she must deal with his undiagnosed high-functioning autism.

This is a brutally honest account of how both light and darkness can shape our lives, and attempts to answer the question, ‘Am I my brother/sister’s keeper?’

Book Themes

autism, coming of age, alternative lifestyling, 1970s

A Pocket Full of Days, Part 2

MIKE CAVANAGH

Isn’t love supposed to be enough?

As Mike and Jo’s story continues to unfold, the secrets they share serve to bind them together while at the same time drive them apart. Yet even in their darkest moments, both learn to find and cherish joy where they can, in the simple moments of living each day.

The conclusion of their story comes both unexpectedly and long foreseen.
This is a heartfelt and raw tale of adversity, endurance and, in the end, acceptance.
