  • Enjoyed this book very much The first 2 3 of the book covers four days in which Sandra meets and falls in love with Rudy, a soldier on leave from the US Army I thought this part of the book was very well written, with great dialogue and well defined characters I would rate this section five stars.The last 1 3 of the book wraps up the story many decades in the future And while I enjoyed the book as a whole, and found myself getting emotional at the end, this particular part of the book felt a bit [...]


  • I read it in two days, it could have been in one day, but I needed the sleep This story about the deaf community was written by a deaf physician who knew intimately what he was talking about I loved the story in general and also had my eyes opened immensely by the perspective of the main character, Sandra, a young deaf Jewish woman in Detroit during WWII who spends four days with Rudy, a young hearing Catholic soldier about to be sent off to Europe I never realized that the deaf tended to separa [...]


  • Stayed up to finish, bit of a formula and not sure that 4 days of love really holds up to a 60 year love.love is about action and its easier to love the idea or potential of someone than the reality Anyway, didn t think it was the best written book, stilted dialogue, etc and cheesy, but I wonder how much is because the book isn t written in the author s first language Was impressed with the efforts of the author to explain the different worlds hearing and non hearing cultures and how they intera [...]


  • A young WASP, hearing man meets a deaf Jewish girl for 4 days while he is on leave from WWII They make a connection, overcoming between themselves all the assumed stereotypes of each, and affecting the rest of their lives As usual, I especially like books that softly teach me something, in this case what it was like to be deaf in a world when deaf people were assumed to be substandard Add that to the girls Jewish religion, there were a number of stereotypes she had to overcome.


  • Disclaimer I know the author personally I really liked reading this book and thought the author did a good job of capturing the complexities of the characters as they navigate between their respective worlds, and also explaining to the reader, an assumed outsider to these worlds, the resulting nuances.


  • I would recommend this book to anyone who is taking up ASL classes and learning about Deaf Culture This will open readers eyes with insights into the Deaf World, especially during the 1940s.
