    One of the most beautiful books I've read

    Set against the backdrop of a town run by a tyrannical beast, three children find friendship, acceptance, and ultimately a deep and abiding love. This has to be one of the most beautiful books I have ever read and it certainly unleashed a storm of tears that I wasn't prepared for. At about the twenty-five percent mark, I ditched my box of tissues and reached for the roll of paper towel! Not used to being ignored nor stared at, Samuel decides that after the first day at his new school, he won't be going back. He was no match for his parents, Reverend and Mrs Burke, and when he once again finds himself sitting next to Lucy, he is shocked to discover that she is deaf. Her brother Noah is the first one to reach out to him in friendship and as the relationship develops between the three children, Sam's concern for Lucy's wellbeing increases until he discovers a way to break through to her. Sam becomes Lucy's means to express herself, as he and his family find ways to enable her to receive the education she so desperately wants. Their first separation comes when Lucy is accepted at a school for the deaf, but their budding romance is kept alive through romantic and poetic letters. However, when a cruel tragedy befalls Sam, Lucy is at her wit's end to reach him. Having no voice, she can only try and get through to him with her presence. The crime committed against Sam brings out the best and the worst in Sam and Lucy's families as they battle against the injustices carried out in the small town. Staying on the right side of the law is difficult, even for Reverend Burke. However, Sam ultimately finds a way to fight his own battles and then redemption comes from the most unexpected source. I cannot praise this book enough, despite it leaving me with swollen eyes and voice hoarse from crying. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.
