A vividly original novel based on the astounding true-life story of Laura Bridgman, the first deaf and blind person
who learned language and blazed a trail for Helen Keller. At age two, Laura Bridgman lost four of her five senses
to scarlet fever. At age seven, she was taken to Perkins Institute in Boston to determine if a child so terribly
afflicted could be taught. At age twelve, Charles Dickens declared her his prime interest for visiting America.
And by age twenty, she was considered the nineteenth century’s second most famous woman, having mastered language
and charmed the world with her brilliance.
