Wild Prairie Rose

Set in the 1950s, Rose must return home to care for her ailing mother. Back home, she befriends James, a deaf man. Rose is intrigued by James. She learns that just because he cannot hear or speak, there are many ways to communicate, and finds that he is intelligent, thoughtful and creative. Although her family and friends discourage the unlikely friendship, the two grow to appreciate each other and fall in love.
