She was physically deaf, He was emotionally blind to a wonderful woman!
This is another of Author Emma Morgan’s wonderful books about strong women with disabilities and their search for love in the Wild West.
In this story Sally Tidwell, a deaf young woman, is on her way to Benson Creek as a mail order bride. She’s tired of everyone treating her defective when they find she is deaf. Ms. Morgan created a character in Sally that is a hard worker, pretty, a good cook and home provider.
Ms. Morgan added drama to the story as Jeb has no idea his future bride is deaf. Jeb is expecting a whole bride not one that as he puts it “is as deaf as a tree”; he is floored when he realizes Sally is deaf. Jeb is stuck on her disability.
