Boy, are you ever in for a fantastic ride with our fall book club selection, The Silent Gift by Michael Landon, Jr., and Cindy Kelley. Once you meet the book's main characters, single mother Mary and her deaf-mute son Jack, you will not want to put the book down as you follow the pair through the highs and lows of their life in the Great Depression.
But as one reviewer said, "The Silent Gift is more than an adventure story: it raises many moral and ethical questions as well as theological ones. ... Through the richly drawn characters who move in and out of Mary’s life, we discover the value of love, feel the pain of betrayal and marvel at the gift of God’s redemption."
