What came to mind for me was our beloved “Archer’s Voice” but I can’t remember the part about her singing… it’s been so many years since I’ve read it. P.S. It’s a must read, and here’s my 5-STAR review.
I’ve read a few that I’ve LOVED featuring deaf characters, so I’m dying to know this one!
I’m at my wit’s end. I can’t find the title or author of this book.
The male character is deaf and in college. (I feel like he might have a younger brother he’s around?)
The female is an amazing singer, but she is afraid to sing in front of people.
They meet when she thinks he has overheard her singing on stage after everyone has left. She’s very upset, but soon finds out he is deaf, but as the book goes on, she realizes he can speak, but he’s afraid to. (There are some emotional issues for him here, I believe.)
So, over the course of the book, they each help the other overcome their fears and find their voices – his to speak and hers to sing.
It’s driving me insane.
Anyone have a guess?
Andrea: Jane Harvey Berrick. Dangerous To Know?
Lisa: This might be a book by Jane Harvey Berrick. Sorry I can’t remember the title.
Lesley: I agree with Lisa … Jane Harvey Berrick Dangerous to know & love 👍🏻
Michelle: Dangerous to Know isn’t it. In the book I’m trying to remember, he can only sign. He’s a good guy, just kind of sullen and withdrawn. And the girl doesn’t audition. She is shy and afraid to sing in front of others. Also, the book is much older than any of Colleen Hoover’s work. The whole thrust of the story is that he is deaf and they start a relationship.
Jackie: Just guessing but sounds like MAYBE SOMEDAY by Colleen Hoover
Mandy: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover?
Valerie: It might be this book by Tammy Falkner, Tall, Tatted and Tempting.
Michelle: Thank you! Unfortunately none of those are it, but I am going to keep hoping!
It was such a good book. The prose was so lyrical. I have searched through my entire Kindle book history, and I cannot find it. I have devoted WEEKS to finding it, and I just can’t!
Michelle: Oh My Goodness! The responses from your site had me checking new sites, and I FOUND IT! It’s Read My Lips by Daryl Banner. I am so happy and so relieved. Thanks for posting for me; I would never have found the book otherwise! 🙂
Maryse: YAY!!!! I’m so glad you found it, Michelle!! Now we have a fun list of similar-style stories, and we have yours too!! 😀
