Descripción

Author and director Michael Landon, Jr. and Cindy Kelley—screenwriters behind the popular Love Comes Softly films—deliver a heartwarming Depression-era tale of a devoted mother and her disabled son. When baby Jack is born, Mary’s joy abounds—until a shocking diagnosis proclaims him a deaf mute. While Mary lovingly nurtures the boy, her husband longs to be rid of “the freak.” Abandoned, Mary struggles to survive. And then she discovers Jack’s amazing gift.

    When I saw that this book was by Michael Landon Jr., I knew I wanted to read it no matter what it was about. I was curious to see how talented a writer the son of "Charles Ingalls" was. All I can say is "WOW"!! Landon and Kelley have written an amazing book!!! The book takes place in the 1930's during the depression. It's about Jack, a child who is deaf and mute, and Jack's mother Mary. She will do whatever it takes to protect Jack, even if that means leaving her husband who is not what she wants in a father for her son. Mary is having a difficult time, as if the years during the depression aren't hard enough, her marriage dissolved, and overall things just are not going well. She loses her home, money and is losing her faith. She also discovers that Jack has a God given gift, but with it also comes more hardships for them.This is a very sad book at times, but it is also full of hope and love. There were some unanswered questions I had while reading this book, but I think overall it was very well written and the descriptions of that era were incredible. If you haven't read this book, I suggest you either buy it or borrow it from a friend or check to see if your library has it. You will not be disappointed.

    This book left me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Such an amazing journey and story of a mother's love for her child. I was pulled in so much that I read the majority of it in one sitting.As I read this story I found myself feeling very protective of her son and understood her fierce desire to see him safe. The authors created so many vast characters. At first I wasn't sure how they all fit in, but by the end of the story everyone had their rightful place. The book seemed to be more of Mary's story rather than Jack's, that surprised me a bit. But in the end it made perfect sense.I visualize books I read and often times it's like watching a movie. This book fell into that category very well. It really was like watching a movie. I felt like I was there watching the story unfold right down to standing next to the lion cage Jack woke up in. I think this book would make a heartfelt movie and would love to watch it.If you're looking for an inspirational, uplifting story, this would be a great choice! (received from publicist for review)
