- Who Will Hear Them Cry

When she’s asked to look into unexplained “accidents” at a private school for the blind and multi-handicapped, Kate is reluctant to leave her secure home or to allow herself to care again. Two years ago she lost both her husband and their unborn child as well as her vision. Why should she want to get involved in real life when there were all those computer games to keep her occupied? But once involved, she is drawn into something far more frightening and bizarre than she could ever have imagined.
This is a fast paced mystery with believable characters and excellent plotting. While the protagonist is blind, don’t worry. She has more than five senses: a sense of what’s right, a sense of justice and, most of all, good old-fashioned common sense.

Here's a “what if” scenario we can hope won't happen. In 2050, Canada, and the rest of the world pretty well have things under control. Population problems are solved with a two-child-per-family limit. There is ample employment and technology has reached an amazing peak. Then loggers arrive to clear out one of the last old-stand forests only to find their equipment blasted and personnel knocked unconscious by trees which have suddenly become electrically charged. Then, while scientists are trying to solve this situation, new tree growth occurs everywhere!
One family had looked to the future many years earlier. On a small farm Cara, Larry and “Granny” who was a Cree Indian elder had built a self-sufficient house into the side of a hill, built a granary as well as other storage areas for their garden produce. Their family, Sunny, Richard, their children Jimmy and Laken, together with a niece living with them moved to the farm called Wescara. There they prepared for the inevitable when technology would no longer be any help and their own wits and wisdom would have to save them.
I found myself so engrossed in this story I felt I was a part of it. It makes one think of how we are damaging our planet and how, some day, somehow, it could fight back!

Ms. Campbell has merged the 19th and 20th century into a story that will keep you hooked from Page One! An 1830's building originally used to provide basic training for blind women is now housing an experimental project where blind men and women are transitioning from rehabilitation training to going back into the "real world." Chris, a recently blinded concert pianist, has come both to continue her adjustment to blindness as well as receive further piano instruction at the nearby university. Her resemblance to Miss Melissa, a blind woman who had fought her way to become the original school's director, wakes a malevolent spirit who wants to destroy Chris just as he had tried to destroy Miss Melissa. You will come to respect the blind people who don't let their disability stop them from waging battle against as well as for the spirits who inhabit this home. I would give this book a 5-star rating.
