Key Features


Mary Lambert has always felt safe and protected on her beloved island of Martha's Vineyard. Her great-great-grandfather was an
early English settler and the first deaf islander. Now, over a hundred years later, many people there -- including Mary -- are deaf,
and nearly everyone can communicate in sign language. Mary has never felt isolated. She is proud of her lineage.
But recent events have delivered winds of change. Mary's brother died, leaving her family shattered. Tensions over land disputes
are mounting between English settlers and the Wampanoag people. And a cunning young scientist has arrived, hoping to discover
the origin of the island's prevalent deafness. His maniacal drive to find answers soon renders Mary a ""live specimen"" in a cruel
experiment. Her struggle to save herself is at the core of this penetrating and poignant novel that probes our perceptions of ability
and disability. It will make you forever question your own ideas about what is normal.
