He Plays a Harp – a memoir by Roberta King chronicles the short life and death of Noah as told through his mother’s point of view. Readers will experience the unimaginable, challenging and frustrating circumstances of raising a child with a severe and life-threatening disability.
But make no mistake; this isn’t a book about a child who has died. It is about a child who has lived. He Plays a Harp is a story about how an everyday family, living under extraordinary circumstances, refused to let their son live anything less than a normal life.
While the author’s grief and loss are undeniable, her matter-of-fact writing style, sharp sense of humor and fierce love for her child will have readers laughing through their tears at tales of mischief and hilarity that all loving families experience.
