Honoria is deaf. And in 1841 that is synonym for being dumb and unable to care for yourself. So when her parents pass away she is forced to pack up her belongings and move to a dormitory in France. But before she goes she is determined to have 5 nights of freedom. Five nights to prove to herself that she is more then everyone else things she is. She turns to her old tutor and closest friend Jude for help. Together they find the perfect partner for her. Enter Esau. Big, strong, manly dock worker. He is almost as shocked by Honoria’s proposal as he is by her disability. But together they work through the difficulties and embark on a road in which they fall in love.
But what about her relationship with Jude? Will his jealously prove to be too much or will they manage a relationship between the three of them.
I seriously loved this book. It was sweet and thoughtful. Different to anything I have read before. Abigail Barnette is a masterful story teller with a talent for passion. I found it hard to put down from beginning to end. It was filled with little twists that kept the story exciting and had such a sweet ending that I never saw coming.
