Resilient silence: A Deaf-experience suspense novel


Peter M. Quint


Redemption Press




298 pages


Written in a futuristic society, ten years from now, in Washington state, this is the story of two brothers, both deaf, yet their deafness happening at different stages of their lives and in different ways. Julius has lived most of his life in silence, deaf since a young boy. His brother Jeremy is infuriated by his brother’s healing loss as well as the death of their father and his anger directs his actions. He joins the military as a border patrol agent but when he, too, loses his hearing in a chemical accident, he is honorably discharged from the military.

Will the brothers’ common love for running reunite them and help them to reconnect? Can Julius’ commitment to the Lord impact his brother’s life and bring him the peace he so desperately desires?

The dialogue containing sign language is difficult to follow and understand.
