Storyline

Millions adored Daphne Fields, for she shared their passion, their pain, their joy, and their sorrow. America's most popular novelist remained a closed book. She hides many secrets. The husband and daughter she lost in a fire. The son who barely survived it and would be deaf forever. The victories, the defeats, the challenges of facing life as a woman alone and helping her son meet the challenges of his handicap. A strong woman, she would not accept defeat, or help from anyone- until she found she could no longer face it alone. Written by Pamela

Lindsay & Barry and of course the actors playing Andrew Were EXQUISITE in Signing
3 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was just so impressed with the actors evidenced study of sign language, signed at least 3/4 of movie and were impeccable.

BRAVO Lindsay and Barry.

I loved this movie SO Much, I wished there would be a sequel.

I Want to see more of Daphne and Matt in their Life together, raising Andrew, Andrew would be 18-19 now. there would be a lot of interesting Story plots here. I'd be glad to be on the writing team for the Sequel.

Lindsay just did "Thicker Than Water" in 2005, so she must be in her working stage. I miss her when she's away. She's a Most Excellent actress and I commend her for the vehicles she chooses.

Much Redeeming Quality in what she chooses.

I'll have to look up Barry and see if he's currently working also. And the oldest portrayal of Andrew , THAT WOULD BE FANTASTIC if he could be in the sequel !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THANKS
