Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
The 60s. The crossroads of change and immobility. In 1964, C.A. Harris was three years old and living in a world of silence.

About C.A. Harris

C.A. Harris decided in early 2011 that it was time to break her silence about growing up hearing impaired. So, she began to write. She’d never written anything before, but the words flowed as she spent countless hours surfacing memories and allowing them to subside again. Tears spilled as she recalled the countless trips to the doctor and the ridicule by her peers.

C.A.’s intent for Breaking Silence isn’t fame and fortune – it’s hope and inspiration. An adult now, she allows wisdom to guide her and she wants all children who are deaf or hearing impaired to know that they don’t have to live in silence.

Review by: Renee Douglas on Oct. 21, 2011 :
It was with great anticipation that I began reading this book and with great sadness that I put my Kindle down as the story ended. I could have read on and on, it was well written and the imagery made me feel as though I was right there in the story, experiencing every single moment with the author. I hope that C.A. will continue her story, as it is indeed a great story she has to tell. Kudos to the author for a job well done!!!! For an engaging read and catching your readers right in the moment with you!

Review by: Paula O'Neil on Sep. 14, 2011 :
Breaking Silence captured the essence of 1960s Detroit and how difficult it was to grow up physically challenged. One thing I particularly liked in the book was there wasn't any foul language or adult content, and the story flies by -- I didn't want to put it down!
