This novel reflects on the unique union of a deaf man and a hearing woman. It offers an uncommon perspective on everyday events. Add durable love and humour, and the result is an extraordinary coupling whose mutual determination defies the odds of unconventional marriage!  Dan Brighton, deaf since he was a toddler, is a verbally proficient and charming individual.

He wins the love of Cara DiSordo. They get married and then Cara teaches herself to sign (only after they married, you ask might ask yourself?!). However, she soon recognizes the tough realities of marriage to a deaf partner. Dan’s internal struggle and his inner demons lead to anger and frustration.  Cara attributes Dan’s dark side to a troubled upbringing involving a father’s disappointment, a sister’s animosity, and a mother’s irresolute love.

Under constant strain, but never out of love with her husband, Cara takes a promotion at work that takes her away from Dan for almost four months. During this time, she explores the strength of her difficult marriage. Will Dan and Cara’s marriage survive the separation? It’s for you, the Action Deafness Books’ reader, to find out!
