Critics and authors praise WHAT THE DEAF-MUTE HEARD by G. D. Gearino
"This novel speaks with a clear, strong, and resonant voice. It is an unbelievable story, a memorable history of a boy's courage."
-Kaye Gibbons, best-selling author of Sights Unseen
"Gearino is a talented yarn-spinner, who knows how to concoct a high-velocity story."

- Winston-Salem Journal (NC)

He takes a premise that at face value seems totally implausible and proceeds to craft an intricate tale of intrigue interlaced with homespun observations about the human condition .... WHAT THE DEAF-MUTE HEARD is a spellbinding work of fiction."
