Book Review: The Silent Gift by Michael Landon Jr. and Cindy Kelley

"My story is as unique as my birth - and so is the fact that I could not tell it to you until now. But even as I give you this account, it isn't me I want you to focus on - rather, it's my mother. My mother is where the heart of the story lies." The Silent Gift, pg 8.

Like any mother, Mary Sinclair loves her son Jack. But Jack isn't like other boys. He can't hear and he can't talk. To make matters worse, Mary finds herself a single parent, forced to raise this special boy on her own. Mary longs for others to recognize the special gift that is her son. It is then that The Gift appears, and the deaf mute begins to give comfort and direction to those who are seeking. But will The Gift be enough?

This book pulled me in and left we wondering from the moment that I picked it up. The story is filled with action and twists that I didn't see coming. I couldn't put it down. Michael London Jr. and Cindy Kelley team up to bring us a great novel set in the late 1930's. It's a story of hope and faith. I would highly recommend this book.

(I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.)
