rkfall5 Stars Out Of 5Boarding SchoolsNovember 12, 2017rkfallQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a great book of life through the eyes of children with either no sight or no hearing in this historical fiction. There are 2 stories here and both of them are great! If I had to pick a favorite, although that's difficult because they are both great, I'd have to say I think I liked the first one more than the second. To see how things progressed in a time when new teaching methods were coming out to help with communication of the young ones was precious. The love shown by those caring for the children was felt and in the first story, the doctor and Abigail were really fun to watch and see how it all played out. A great read!!
I received a copy of this in exchange for my honest review.

This is about Abigail as a new teacher at the Cecilia Quincy School for the Deaf. Now Abigail has some new ways of teaching the children there at the Deaf School and I have to say Dr. Quincy needs. Dr. Quincy may or may not have a problem with her new teaching style - plus she's not only working into the hearts of each of the students she just may possibly be working her way into the heart of Dr,. Quincy or is she just plain annoying him? The progressive teaching from this progressive teacher was sent by GOD - the live-in students felt it and so did Dr. Quincy. Would Dr. Quincy trust GOD to let HIM open his heart? These two stories keep you up turning the pages and not realizing it - because you just do not want to put this down because you have to know more - and the more you know you have to know more - yowza. I received a complimentary copy of the book from the Publisher and Netgalley; all the opinions expressed here in this review are all my own.
