Kassie has felt adrift ever since her dad died when she was in college. Now 24 and living in Seattle, she gets interested in learning sign language through her roommate, a sign language interpreter. One day at a Deaf community event, she sees a young man sitting off by himself. Kassie feels compelled to try signing to him–the fact that he’s strikingly handsome doesn’t hurt.
Jake has been deaf and blind since birth. His disability has cut him off from the world, but beneath his isolated exterior, is a smart, sweet guy with a dry sense of humor. Despite the odds, he’s highly educated, but at 26, he’s gotten stuck in a rut, with few friends and no clear career plans. Until a sweet-smelling girl introduces herself to him unexpectedly, and opens up a whole new world to him.
Jake is more intelligent, more genuine than anyone she has met before, and for the first time Kassie starts to feel like her life has some direction. But as their friendship deepens into something more, the difficulty in communicating with each other only grows, and it seems like everyone they know thinks their relationship won’t work. How can they come to a deeper understanding of each other, and find a future together?

This book was so wonderful and I had a really hard time putting it down once I started reading. It was so wonderfully written, with so much emotion and love. This love story is amazing to say the least and truly the saying "love conquers all" is very fitting to this story.

I really like Kassie, she is a really sweet and open minded person even though she can be a bit whiny at times. She has a beautiful quality to Jake as the person he is and not just his disability. To her he is so much more, like everyone else and I love that about her.  Jake is also a really lovable character and he is very direct and down to earth even though he is somewhat set in his ways and at times a bit childish. They are so good for each other and they help each other grow but it isn't always easy for them.

If you want an emotional and beautiful love story you should read this one. it is one of the better books I've read this year. It is so worth the time. I was pleasantly surprised by this book.
