I wasn't too sure about this book at first, but being an avid reader of Jacqueline Gilbert's books, I decided to persevere. It starts out in the present life of one Leah Durrance who is a producer of theatrical shows. She has a play about a deaf girl who falls in love, and it is to be directed by Leah's ex-love Max Calvert. Leah and Max have unfinished business - she left him five years ago without a decent explanation for her departure from their relationship.

The book doesn't stay in the past
