To the readers who have read the author's first book Life and Deaf, this new story will answer their desire to know what happened to her daughter Rosemary, who became deaf at the age of two years due to an overdose of streptomycin, and her progress thereafter despite eminent specialists suggesting her only vocabulary would be "signing" and her speech would be very limited.

Book Description
To the readers who have read Patricia Molloy's first book Life and Deaf, published in April 2004, this new story will answer their desire to know what happened to her daughter Rosemary who became deaf at the age of two years due to an overdose of streptomycin, and her progress thereafter despite eminent specialists suggesting Rosemary's only vocabulary would be “signing” and her speech would be very limited.

It was always the author's and her husband Peter's hope and indeed their determination to see she grew up to be a happy, self-confident and friendly adult, one who would be welcomed by the rest of society as a normal, capable and totally trustworthy individual. This is surely the ideal of any parents of a disabled child.

Patricia and Peter were so very fortunate that with the teaching of Rosemary's wonderful teachers at St John’s School for the Deaf in Boston Spa allied to Rosemary's own wonderfully straightforward resilient nature, their goal appeared to have been reached by the close of the first book, Life and Deaf. This was in spite of many early battles, which the author stresses often ended in terrible tears and tantrums.

The previous book closed on the day Rosemary married Steve, a day that was such a triumph for her parents as they heard Rosemary, who had been unable to say a single word from the age of two until she was seven, standing in Church and making her wedding vows for all to hear.

This book continues the saga! 

About the author

The author was born Patricia Pilkington in 1922. Shortly after the outbreak of war in 1939 she became an Ambulance Driver with the local civil defence ambulance service. Soon thereafter she joined the WAAF as a driver and was posted to Church Fenton fighter aerodrome near Doncaster, where she drove the coal wagon and salvage wagon before being appointed staff car driver to the station squadron leader. After the war she became the first female police car driver in the Leeds City Police, where she met and married Peter, to whom she owes this story.
