Jolene Yoder returns to Indiana to teach sign language to newly deaf Lonnie Hershberger. Lonnie is certain his disability will make him unable to properly provide for a wife, so he fights his growing attraction to Jolene. Meanwhile, Jake Beechy returns to Indiana and seems to be interested in Jolene, but her cousin, Ella, doesn't trust him and is certain he will break Jolene's heart. (BARBOUR, Mar., 320 pp., $10.97)
