      I really enjoyed this HP and the mute heroine. Mandy was a hoot with her caustic inner musing. I didn't find her childlike at all, despite a tendency to giggle silently. Her thoughts and desires were those of an adult. She was a bit immature at the start but she was a sheltered 21, and she grew by the end. Loved when she confronted the bitch Meredith. I liked the hero too. I didn't mind the lack of his POV cuz his moods and thinking were pretty obvious. Except when he declared he'd loved Mandy b [...]

      Re Silence Speaks for Love - Emma Goldrick has a mute 21 yr old h paired with a 30ish H who is a writer.The book opens with the h going to the H's house for a big charity ball. It is her 21st birthday and her doctor decided that she should have an evening out and brought her. Then he took off and the h has no way to communicate with anyone, but she does get a dance with the H who thinks she is a teenager.Later in the garden she attacked by a group of young men, the h has mad karate skillz and ki [...]

      "Silence Speaks for Love" tells the story of Mandy and Brian.When Mandy encounters Brian on a night she's accompanying an old friend, she's swept away by his arms, literally.Soon circumstances lead for them to move in, and ultimately get married- while she works for him and fights his shitty ex.I love characters that are written well while having disabilities (because none of us are perfect)- and when it comes to that- Mandy was a strong woman who could take care of herself (surviving time and a [...]

      2-1/2 starsInteresting premise. The mute girl was an interesting twist. She was written very childish seeming and her continual giggling to herself got annoying. The hero was sort of a Professor Higgins sort. Very self absorbed and superior in a 'that's just the way the world works' way. I had no real problem with that but I did have a problem with his not standing up for his wife against the OW's shenanigans.

      Note: This was first published in 1992, before cell phones and computers; Mandy uses a typewriter to type Brian's book.First, the blurb above can't even begin to touch on the heart and soul of this book. Mandy has just turned 21 and meets Brian Stone, an adventure writer. Because Mandy had a very traumatic experience that resulted in her parents' death, she hasn't spoken a word since she was a child. In Brian's eyes, this makes her a perfect candidate first as his secretary and then as his wife. [...]

      3 things I could loathed about this book – but didn’t. 1. The fairy tale ambiance. From the onset, this book read like a script for Disney’s 1991 Beauty and the Beast film, complete with a ballroom scene with the prince and heroine. It could’ve been so ludicrous set in a contemporary novel but Emma Goldrick wrote the plot in deftly: The host of a country ball, and hero of the story, espies our young lady hiding behind the potted plants. As she does a pretend curtsy to said potted plants, [...]

      This was sweet.Both the hero and the heroine were extremely likeable. Though some have mentioned that the heroine Mandy was a bit immature. I think there is a perfect justification for it.She had led a very sheltered life.Iloved her girlie interior monologues. She was a strong girl. She never shied away from her feelings for Brian, the hero. She always knew sheloved him and had confessed it too. Sadly, Brian didn't read her sign language well else he would have known it sooner. She isn't exactly [...]

      This was an okay read, nothing earth shattering. Which is a shame, given the storyline had great potential. I thought the author lacked sensitivity and I somewhat resented the fact that she made the heroine out to be not very smart and silly. The heroine often made references that she didn't understand the conversations going on about her so she would just shrug, sit back quietly and let the world decide what was right for her. I found that a bit offensive given she was mute, not deaf. I also fo [...]

      I seem to remember reading this book in my youth and enjoying it so now I've had a second look in digital format. EG Defo wrote old fashioned stories and our H and h are no exceptions she's a traumatised innocent and he's a bit of a Fuddy duddy. With the experience of years l still like the h she is brave and funny where's our H needs a smack upside the head for several reasons no 1 calling the h child all the time really gets on my nerves and no 2 for defending the OW - a big no no other than t [...]

      Not a big fan of this one.The heroine is mute from a traumatic childhood experience, but for the first bit of the book the author makes her seem childlike and stupid even though she's 21 years old.Once we get past that, she acts unreasonable.The hero has a 'whatever' attitude through a lot of the book.The only thing that somewhat saves the book is the villainess. I think more props should be given to villains in books. Without them, most books would suck.The dog is pictured in the background of [...]

      Couldn't finish it. Stopped at page 85. Character development is unrealistic.Can't believe a person who lost both her parents when she was 14 and became mute at the same time, could grow up being that immature drama queen. She is supposedly being a highly intelligent and a Harvard graduate too.

      One of my absolute favorite romance novels. Her past is something that haunts her, until he helps her work through it. I've read this book so many times. And will always come back to it.
