Recently I have been engrossed in The Silent Gift. From the beginning, I have been captivated. The plot is full of unexpected twists and turns. It never continues the way I expect it to go which is why it is hard to put down. The book is about a young lady and her son who is a deaf-mute. Without giving away much of the plot, the lady and her child find themselves in places in which they never anticipated or wanted to be. Along the journey they discover a very special gift that Jack, the boy has that helps others. They also meet many people providentially through the circumstances they are forced to endure and through the gift that Jack has. Mary, the young lady, discovers much about herself and realizes that even though she has a deaf-mute child that he is a special gift from God. He not only is a special gift from God to Mary, but to many others, as he helps them through his unusual gift from God.
I would recommend this book to others because it is captivating and well written. Many novels are just about romance and this one is not and that is why I was drawn to select it from Bethany House Publishers for a book review.
