About The Book:

Eve, a chimpanzee orphaned by poachers and used for experiments in a medical lab, can finally lead a new life at the Dayton Ohio Zoo, but co-workers Kate and Marc must overcome serious professional differences to build a relationship with her. Forced to work together, Kate and Marc find common ground when they discover they both are the sole caregivers for their mothers, one who has been deaf her

entire life and the other who recently lost her ability to process words. After a life-

threatening crisis occurs, can they find the courage—and the shared language—to reach across these silent divides to heal the ones they love?
