The Setup
Melanie Marsh, a high-strung American expat in London, has a toddler, Daniel, who won’t stop breast-feeding — or start speaking — and an uptight husband who won’t admit something may be wrong.

Turning Point
Melanie hires an irresistible Irish autism expert to work with Daniel…and relax Mummy.

Final Analysis
Smartly written but shrill, Daniel might have worked better as impassioned nonfiction. (Marti Leimbach has an autistic son.)
