Read an excerpt:
The prairie was filled with sound: buzzing grasshoppers, singing birds, grass whispering in the breeze. James was aware as never before how much sound there was in his world, and how much silence there must be in hers. But he also noticed as never before the visual beauty, the waving grasses, the birds, an antelope that moved with fluid grace out of their way, the vast blue canopy of sky above them.
“Were ye always deaf, Betsy?” It was a very personal question, and he wondered if she’d take offense.
She shook her head. “Annie says when I was baby, I could hear. Two years old, I have high fever, then deaf.”
So no real memory of sound. He was thinking about that when she turned the tables.
