Abigail didn't expect this… When Abigail James accepted a teaching position at the Cecilia Quincy School for the Deaf, she wasn't prepared for what awaited her. First, one of her young pupils is both deaf and blind. . .a challenge Abigail isn't sure she's prepared for. Then there's the school's director, Mr. Carter, who's vehemently opposed to introducing any new teaching techniques, including Braille and sign language, that could help the students immensely. Dr. Trent Quincy, the school's owner, hopes the new teacher will stay. Her concern for the students is quite clear. And then she has a curious way of capturing his heart. But as unsettling events rain down on the Quincy School, will old ways prevent a bright future?
