Winter Harris was seven years old when she met Connor. He was her soulmate, her best friend – the one person who understood her implicitly. Winter was deaf; but she was a strong, independent girl, fierce and courageous. Her older brother Charlie had always protected Winter, though she would say she didn’t need protecting. But when Winter was ten and their father died, things changed.

As they moved through school into high school to graduation for Charlie, Connor remained by Winter’s side. Their friendship turned into love – the boyfriend/girlfriend status was never stronger. The day a new boy turned up at their school by the name of Nolan Reed, and Nolan laid eyes on Winter he was lost. But although he knew she had a boyfriend, Nolan’s friendship with Charlie and Connor and in turn, Winter, remained.

Heartache and tragedy interrupted their lives – nothing was the same again. Winter left her home and everything she’d known to start a new life. But could she? Making new friends, starting a job – years passed while a heart was left shattered…

Winter Signs by Aussie author Sarah Gai is a wonderful story which centres around a character who has spent her life wrapped in silence. Deafness and everything that means for living a life is hard to comprehend for someone who has never been in that position. The author covered it well; I could feel Winter’s frustration when she was unable to understand non-signing people because they spoke too fast for her to lip-read. I thoroughly enjoyed Winter’s story – I also loved Autumn's Dance, the first in the series – and highly recommend Winter Signs.

With thanks to the author for my digital copy to read and review.
