  • I love this book

    An absolutely unique, intriguing, curious romance that blends the emerging new science of sign language with the unfair real-life prejudice against deaf people and the ugly assumption if one cannot hear and talk that they are an imbecile. I loved the characters. Adeline/Addie at twenty-four is a confident loving person. After several failed London seasons, she has determined that she will never marry and that was the reason for her striking out on her own. She is strong minded to move out of her parent's home to Bath and open a bookstore. Although she has dyslexia it does not deter her from loving books. She is a successful businesswoman. She works hard at maintaining the inventory, shelving and accounting. Lord Grayson, Earl of Berkshire is a widow and a father of a son barely four-year-old named Michael. Michael is deaf and Grayson went to the bookstore to find a book on a new science called sign language. Apparently, Grayson's widowed sister-in-law was taking Michael to court to declare him incompetent to be heir. She wants her spoiled trouble making ten-year-old son to inherit. Grayson loves his son so much there was nothing he will not do for him. When Addie first met Grayson at the bookstore, he was arrogant and cold, but when he began talking about Michael he lit up with love and joy. This was the beginning for Addie, Grayson and Michael. Such a wonderful story full of respect, admiration, attraction and mutual understanding. It brought a sense of satisfaction to me as I read that Michael and Addie were emotionally bonding and picking up the sign language lessons quicker than Grayson and Mrs. Banfield whose job was to take care of Michael. It must have felt wonderful to Michael to finally be able to express himself and gave a sense of pride to Grayson who could now communicate with him. I loved reading this book. This is a feel-good book with some unexpected surprises based on facts. I also loved the secondary characters, Addie's closest girlfriends Pamela and Charlotte were supportive, understanding and backed her up 100%. Pamela and Charlotte had their own lifelong trials and it made them more endearing. It was also fun to read the roundabout way Grayson's attraction to Addie came about. This book is a successful beginning to a new series and I look forward to the next book. Reasons I enjoyed this book: Entertaining Original Romantic Realistic Wonderful characters
