About the book:

In this poignant and powerful memoir, the author tells the story of her childhood growing up with Deaf parents. Through intimate and evocative prose, Dawn explores the challenges and joys of living in a world that is often hostile and unwelcoming to those who are different. From the isolation and challenges that come with being a child of Deaf parents, to the strength and resilience that comes with love and belonging, the author shares their unique and deeply personal perspective on what it means to see and communicate in a richly silent world. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the Deaf experience, and the power of love and belonging to overcome adversity. Beautifully written and deeply moving, Unheard Voices is an exploration of what it means to be a part of a diverse and vibrant culture.
