Rita Leganski, author of The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow

Conceived in love and possibility, Bonaventure Arrow didn't make a peep when he was born, and the doctor nearly took him for dead. No one knows that Bonaventure's silence is filled with resonance --- a miraculous gift of rarefied hearing that encompasses the Universe of Every Single Sound. With the help of a Creole housekeeper endowed with her own special gifts, Bonaventure will find the key to long-buried mysteries and soothe a chorus of family secrets clamoring to be healed.
