Rebuilding A Brick Wall by Susanne Gauthier with Evan Wall

Susanne and Evan meet by chance at a local gym in Saskatchewan. She wondered about Evan’s physical and mental disabilities. After some chatter, Evan opened up about this life-changing accident.

This is Susanne’s first book in the publishing world but she’s no stranger to writing. Sue is an accomplished corporate writer and editor.

Hopefully, this will not be Susanne’s last book. This story about Evan Wall, a journey from boyhood to becoming an adult with disabilities would make a great read in our High School education system. It’s not only a coming-of-age story but most importantly describes some major life lessons.

As a mother of a teenager, I shared this story of Evan’s journey with him. The lessons in this book are not only about not giving up but how to overcome any challenges that life can give out.

I enjoyed at the beginning of each chapter Susanne has an encouraging quote. My favourite quote is “Tough times never last, but tough people do.” – Robert H. Schuller

This quote definitely describes Evan’s story and is something we all can remind ourselves of from time to time.

Evan’s wisdom and determination haven’t stopped him especially for someone with brain injury and physical limitations. His willingness to move forward and refusal to not give up is something our society, in general, can definitely learn from.  Society should show more respect to people like Evan, even with a disability we should never look down on anyone.

I recommend Rebuilding a Brick Wall to anyone young or old who needs to be inspired either physically or mentally. Evan Wall is an amazing role model, thank you for sharing your story.
