Publisher's Summary

Lauri is a dedicated young teacher for the deaf. Her past conceals a wound still unhealed, her present is a facade, and she uses her career to hide her loneliness. Drake, daytime TV's most popular star, has two heartaches - the daughter he believes will never have a normal life and the dead wife he can't forget. Jennifer is the beautiful hearing-impaired child who may become a pawn between the man and the woman she needs the most. Now, in the heart of a New Mexico arts community, the three may become a family...but only if each one dares to find a voice and lets his or her fears and needs speak for themselves.

    "Eloquent Silence"

    This book was very shallow. The plot line was limited at best. The characters were not realistic. It was a dated story that lacked the needed substance. This book was a disappointment.

    Story
    "Writers take heart"

    This book should give all writer-wannabes hope - You Too Can Be Published.

    The Hero is a jerk if not a sociopath. There were so many times I thought that he would have to bite the dust for the story to find a happy ending. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.

    The Heroine is so dense she would welcome home Jason, hockey mask and all. She would, no doubt, be thinking "Why is it he makes every cell in my body tingle?" Bleeeeeeack

    However, I learned a lot about educating the deaf which may have been the main point of the book

    "Why the Harsh Reviews? Simple & Predictable But..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This is an early Sandra Brown. The plot is unique but story IS predictable.

    Lauri is a dedicated young teacher for the deaf. Her past conceals a wound still unhealed, her present is a facade, and she uses her career to hide her loneliness. Drake, daytime TV's most popular star, has two heartaches - the daughter he believes will never have a normal life and the dead wife he can't forget. Jennifer is the beautiful hearing-impaired child who may become a pawn between the man and the woman she needs the most. Now, in the heart of a New Mexico arts community, the three may become a family...but only if each one dares to find a voice and lets his or her fears and needs speak for themselves.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The deaf, young character-Jennifer-her relationships & interactions


    What does Joyce Bean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She was an enjoyable narrator and did a good job with all characters.


    Any additional comments?

    A light romance, chic lit. There is nothing racy or scandalous...possibly a few swears but that's it.

    As a Sandra Brown fan I enjoyed it, it kept my interest and moved along.

    This was on sale and I was able to purchase at additional discount. I would not use a credit to purchase it.
