From the award-winning author of The Testament of Harold’s Wife, Where The Trail Grows Faint, A Matter of Mercy, Remember My Beauties and seven others, comes

a beautifully written exploration of how the language of healing can transcend seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

Eve, a chimpanzee orphaned by poachers and used for experiments in a medical lab, can finally lead a new life

at the Dayton Ohio Zoo, but co-workers Kate and Marc must overcome serious professional differences to build a relationship with her. Forced to work together, Kate and Marc find common ground when they discover they both are the sole caregivers for their mothers, one who has been deaf her entire life and the other who recently lost her ability to process words. After a life-threatening crisis occurs, can they find the courage—and the shared language—to reach across these silent divides to heal

the ones they love?
