The Quality of Silence

My wife strongly recommended this book to me, as she read it earlier this year and told me is was a very unusual and interesting book. I couldn’t agree more. The main storyteller is a young deaf girl who finds a communication outlet through Twitter, describing to the world what words she cannot hear feel like to her.  Most of the story revolves around her and her mother traveling through Alaska and dealing with its incredibly harsh winters, the people they meet on the way, and the girl’s relationship with her parents.  A beautiful story, beautifully told, including an unusual “who-dunnit” aspect.
