Ears to hear: A special heroes book


Kent Wyatt


Gordian Book







357 pages


The special hero is this book is Gabriel, a young autistic man with savant auditory abilities. He can hear just about anything from any distance and also imitate sounds and voices, throwing them to another area rather like a ventriloquist. Somehow Gabe and his sister Amelia get caught up in the escapades of espionage with a group of agents, some Christians who are trusting the Lord in the danger and deception they are part of.  Their mission could have a life or death affect on the entire world. What are an artisan jam maker and her special needs brother doing involved in all this? God uses these unlikely heroes to help the success of the mission. It changes their lives in many ways as well as those on mission with them.
