Adeline is a vibrant, beautiful, strong, fiercely independent woman who has never let her hearing problems hold her back. Only those closest to her know of her problems. Not because she's embarrassed by it, but because she doesn't see herself any differently from anyone else. She can lip read and can communicate well enough to get by in life.
Callum is a strong, caring, loving guy. He builds schools in poor countries and doesn't see his wealth or status as something that should define who he is.
When the two first met, I was in stitches. That first meeting was so hilarious.
Adeline is Callum's landlady, as he chooses to rent a flat from her.
He's a carpenter and so he can repair the damage done by the previous tenant. He may have the money to go and buy a fancy house with all the mod-cons, but instead he chooses to rent the apartment next door to his extremely attractive next door neighbour.
That's one of the things I like most about him, he's down to earth, genuine and doesn't let his wealth go to his head. He's not some domineering, typical rich guy type.
As the story unfolds, we learn more about Adeline and Callum as separate characters, but also about the developing bond between them. Adeline doesn't trust easily, thanks in no small part to her parents. The two people she should have been able to trust most in her life are nothing but vile excuses for human beings. But regardless of that fact, she's slowly learning to trust Callum. He's a genuinely good guy who seems to care about her. She can't confide about her hearing problems because she is scared he'll run away. But Callum isn't stupid, he picks up on little things, thanks, in part, to his new apprentice Scottie.
Callum has his own problems. There's a skeleton in his own closet that he's not keen on letting anyone discover.
The story was beautifully written and has a definite feel good vibe throughout. There are ups and downs, as in any good love story. The highs make you smile and sigh in happiness and the lows make you feel empathy towards the characters and their issues. I can tell you I shed a tear or two.
It was nice to read a story from the POV of both the main characters as you could get into their heads easily and figure out what was going on.
Grace Harper has written characters to fall in love with. In spite of their difficulties, Adeline and Callum make a world of their own where the only people that matter are them and their closest friends.
In a world where we all have our own worries, it's nice to be transported to another place where you can lose yourself and live the life of the characters. This book certainly had me hook, line and sinker. I lost all track of time while I was reading.
From my point of view as a disabled woman, I can totally see why Adeline is scared to put her heart on the line, only to have it broken by a man because he can't see beyond the label of disability. It's hard when you want so much to be loved, to be in love, but people are more shallow than they'd like to admit and are very easily scared off. They can't cope with everything that comes with your disability. It's my opinion that instead of caring about how YOU deal with someone else's disability, you should first care how THEY deal with it.
This story proves my point.
This is the first book I have read by Grace Harper but it won't be the last. The way she writes has you falling head first into a world where you don't ever want to leave.
If you haven't yet read 'The Stranger's Voice' then I suggest you get your copy and see for yourself why I loved it so much.
