What the Deaf Mute Heard
by G.D. Gearino
A boy named Sammy wakes up in an empty bus and finds his mother gone. He sits quietly and waits for her to return. She never does and it’s years before Sammy speaks another word. But the man pretending to be deaf eventually reveals the town’s secrets--and his own. The basis for a popular television movie, “What the Deaf-Mute Heard” is a tale that stays with you long after you’re done reading.
