indie ebook cover

To students at Muskingum High, Annalee's a little girl with the body of a babe, a beautiful creature who never speaks. To E.J., releasing his anger through high school football, she's Nature's Child. To Aunt Kate, she's a young woman imprisoned by some traumatic experience. Does the mysterious recluse possess the power to free her?

Embodying both the power of myth and the charm and insight of a contemporary fairy tale, The Silence of Annalee’s primary theme – for which the title character’s traumatic inability to speak is metaphor – is the life-forming challenge of self-expression in adolescence; the difficulty of real communication in a society ostensibly built on information. Despite her tragic condition, Annalee is not the only Outsider among the young people of her community.
