"The Silver Mist," a fiction novel told from the perspective of a young woman with Down syndrome, is a touching and unique read that raises questions about the ways in which we view this illness.

The Silver Mist by Martin Treanor

Set against the horrifying backdrop of violence in Northern Ireland in the '70s, The Silver Mist is narrated from the perspective of Eve Hayes, a young woman with Down syndrome. Author Martin Treanor says that Eve's journeys help her "learn that her brain is not wired quite as 'wrong' as she has been led to believe," shedding a new light on this mental illness. The Silver Mist is available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com. (Better Karma; $10.99)
