LoveReading Says

An absolutely fascinating historical novel detailing the intimate story of a woman struggling to be heard in a world that refuses to listen. Deaf as result of Scarlet Fever as a child, Ellen Lark is taught Visible Speech by Alexander Graham Bell. A few years later he asks her to testify in support of his claim to the patent of the telephone. Author Sarah Marsh uses fictional and actual characters to chart this time in history, she also creates the most moving and thought-provoking story of a bright young woman. I felt as though I was being shown a number of additional senses as I read. The descriptions take you by the hand and lead you into a place of isolation, where you personally feel each attempt, set-back, and success. The story moves backwards and forwards between two time frames, and rather than fracturing the story, it helps create a sense of intrigue. I feel as though I know Ellen, that she has become a part of me. Chosen as a Liz Pick of the Month, A Sign of Her Own is an engaging and provocative tale, highly recommended by our team.
