Overview

Lauri is a dedicated young teacher for the deaf. Her past conceals a wound still unhealed, her present is a facade, and she uses her career to hide her loneliness. Drake, daytime TV's most popular star, has two heartaches - the daughter he believes will never have a normal life and the dead wife he can't forget. Jennifer is the beautiful hearing-impaired child who may become a pawn between the man and the woman she needs the most. Now, in the heart of a New Mexico arts community, the three may become a family...but only if each one dares to find a voice and lets his or her fears and needs speak for themselves.

Not bad. The characters were rather shallow, but the story plot was interesting, but predictable.

i thought I enjoyed reading books by Sandra Brown, not this one. I couldn't even get to the second CD, it was so awful. It sounded like it would be a good story, but there was no story.

I could've guessed the ending to this book after the first 50 pages. Very predictable. But then alot of Sandra Brown books are very similar. Not my favorite.

THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF THE WORD "TRASH" I COULD NOT EVEN GET THROUGH THE SECOND DISK! BORING, PREDICTABLE, DATED.... ONE STAR RATING IS TOO HIGH!

I really wanted to get "into" the story, but I was constantly distracted and put off by the sexual intonations of Sandra Brown. Others may enjoy this, and I had forgotten that this is Sandra Brown's style, but I didn't want to bring that into my kitchen (where I listen to my books.)

Where is the plot??? The story was long on sex scenes and short on plot and character development.

The book started out very quickly and was fast moving throughout. It was funny and sad all at the same time. I listened to it twice before I sent it back. Some very HOT love scenes!!!

The old Sandra Brown Style where there is no murder mystery.

In the past I have been a fan of Sandra Browne's but felt this book just went on and on. It could have been half as long and I would have enjoyed the book. The ending was predicable. The narrator was one of the worst I have heard. Too much "sex" in the book for me.
