Feature & Follow Friday.....


Hello all, it's that day of the week where we learn new things about each other and discover new blogs along the way.  We also help each other by becoming followers of one another.  Normally that following would be through GFC (which would be great if you'd still take a few seconds to do), but with that being eliminated for certain blogs (a big boo-hiss to that) I now ask that you follow through a RSS Feed (or Twitter, FB, or email) which you can find to the right.  I want to thank all of you ahead of time who choose to become a follower and make sure to let me know in the comments if you're new so I doubly make sure to follow you back.  And now for this weeks get to know me question....


Q:  Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book - and how did you react?

A:  The book is Annie's Song by Catherine Anderson.  The heroine is deaf and mute and becomes pregnant after being raped by the heroes brother.  The hero marries her to keep her safe and slowly starts to fall in love with her and the little family they've created.  So much in her life has been out of her hands and he doesn't want her to feel forced anymore so he sends her away to school.  Through a number of letters and little comments she makes he gets jealous and realizes he doesn't want to be without her.  The scene where he comes to get her and she signs, for the first time, that she loves him brought a tear to my eye and as a disabled person too it made me wish I could find someone just as compassionate.
