Praise for Speaking in Jitterbug
"USA Today bestselling author, Jaqueline Girdner turns her poignant wit to a new Novel, Speaking in Jitterbug.
"As moving as Oliver Sacks' Awakenings--a mother breaks her 20-year silence. But is it too late? Girdner weaves the words of four daughters into the heartfelt tale of a family stunned by a mother's sudden return to life. Charlotte Vogel, trapped in a mute, unmoving state by schizophrenia for two decades, suddenly responds to a new medication by walking, talking and even dancing. Her four grown daughters and devoted husband, Gus, are overjoyed--yet thrown into turmoil. Speaking in Jitterbug tells their story with wry humor and deep feeling."
