A Silent Heart by Eli Grace – Free eBooks Download
Laurie doesn’t have a voice to tell Tanner how she feels, but she can show him.
Laurie can hear the whistles of the birds, hear her percolator brewing coffee in the kitchen, and hear her cat purring for affection. However, she cannot add to the noise of the world surrounding her. She has no voice, thanks to a tumor that paralyzed her vocal cords a year ago and turned her world inside out.
Laurie’s entire life has come to a standstill; some days, her body doesn’t want to operate and her mind doesn’t want to function. Every day, she wants to sing and scream and sob, but can’t. It shouldn’t be called ‘vocal cord paralysis’, it should be called ‘life paralysis’.
Leaving speech therapy on a warm summer’s day and caught in her thoughts, Laurie is struck by a car. When the ambulance arrives, she meets Tanner― a paramedic who’s long on looks and short on love. Tanner has dedicated his days to doing his job and saving people, with neither the time nor the patience for romance. He’s been burned before and isn’t ready for a repeat.
Tanner and Laurie have an instant, inexplicable connection and the only thing they both know for certain is that fate has brought them together.
Sometimes, love is loud. Sometime, love is quiet. For Laurie and Tanner, love is silent.
