In This Sign by Joanne Greenberg

Book Description

Abel and Janice Ryder begin their married life together with all the hopes and dreams of a young couple deeply in love. But before long they realize that their deafness stands as an immense barrier between them and the society that seems to work only for those who can hear. Inexperienced, ignorant, and bewildered, they leave the harsh environment of a school for the handicapped and enter the insensitive world of the hearing. Through years of debt and misunderstanding, hard and degrading work, the raising of a hearing daughter, common tragedies and joys, they learn that the remarkable tool of sign language enables them to survive and, indeed, to forge a love too powerful to be broken by the painful, extraordinary world into which they were born. In a story that spans four generations, we are witness to one family's struggle to carve a place for itself out of the tides of wealth, war, and human strivings that have swept America in this century.

I Never Promised You a Rose Garden by Joanne Greenberg I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, Paperback / softback (June 2009)

Featuring a new Afterword by the author, Greenberg's semi-autobiographical novel stands as a timeless and unforgettable portrayal of mental illness and remains every bit as poignant, gripping, and relevant as when it was first published in 1964.
