She's guilty until proven innocent.
When drug smuggling suddenly rocks a small island community in Maine the DEA sends in Agent Owen Matthews to shut it down. A single father of a deaf son, Owen senses the village's primary suspect - the high school's new principal - doesn't fit the profile. Meanwhile, that new principal, Miriam Hunter, hopes to shrug off the stigma of her own hearing impairment when she returns to Stepping Stones Island. Her recurring nightmares dredge up old memories that could prove her innocence, and uncover the truth behind a decades-old murder. Will Agent Owen's help be enough when someone decides Miriam should be kept silent - permanently?
4 1/2 Stars! Fantastic - A keeper.
"Miriam is a strong character who is not held back by what others may perceive as a weakness." - RT (Romantic Times) Book Reviews
