Making new friends starting a job – years passed while a heart was left shattered Winter Signs by Aussie author Sarah Gai is a wonderful story which centres around a character who has spent her life wrapped in silence Deafness and everything that means for living a life is hard to comprehend for someone who has never been in that position The author covered it well; I could feel Winter’s frustration when she was unable to understand non signing people because they spoke too fast for her to lip read I thoroughly enjoyed Winter’s story – I also loved Autumn's Dance the first in the series – and highly recommend Winter SignsWith thanks to the author for my digital copy to read and review ARCs can be reuested here WINTER SIGNS by Sarah Gai is the second book in the ‘Season Names’ series We first meet Winter at the age of seven when she meets her brother’s best friend Connor this is when he learns she is deaf and this is when their perfect love starts Winter may have been deaf but she was certainly not helpless Connor learned sign language so he could communicate with her and they went from being ‘insta’ friends to being an inseparable couple and planning their future together by the end of High School Winter’s father dies just before she goes to High School and this hits her for six especially as her mother starts to reject Winter All she has left for support is Connor and her brother CharlieThen Nolan arrives in town he is instantly attracted to Winter but when he learns she is Connor’s he makes no move towards her Interestingly although her heart and soul belongs to Connor Winter is not indifferent to Nolan and she has feelings for him which puzzle her When Winter loses Connor she is inconsolable; her sorrow is so overwhelming that she feels that she had nothing to live for and retreats within herself With no support from her mother Winter decides that the only way she will be able to get out of the dark hole she is in was to go away from everyone she knew and start over She leaves town and moves in with her aunt and eventually learns to live again A few years later at Christmas her brother gets engaged and asks her to return for the wedding and me the Maid of Honour Nolan is the best man he is still single and still attracted to Winter hoping that time has healed the wounds that she carries I have had dealings with deaf children in only a periphery way – part of my English studies at University was to design and present a picture book for deaf children It is so hard to comprehend how not being able to hear affects the lives of the deaf At the school it was jaw dropping to see these kids signing away to each other as a group They taught me how to sign a few swear words too But at school with a deaf unit they are among their peers – when they leave school and go out into the world and are a sole deaf person in a group and people around them talk so fast that they cannot read their lips – then they become isolated and frustrated This happened to Winter on than one occasion when people forgot in the excitement of the conversationSIGNS OF WINTER was full with emotion – loss of loved ones rejection and mental abuse from a parent sadness and sorrow But is in no way a depressing story because after a loss comes recovery After the tears Winter healed and learned to move on with living and to reach out for happiness And her friends are all there to help her The story is beautifully written and had me hooked from the very first pageI wish to thank the author Sarah Gai for my copy to read and review I read the first book in the series by the same author Autumn's Dance so when I found this on Xpressobooktours' site as one of the things up for review I readily signed up I remember liking the first book so I am hoping to be touched and moved by this second installment alsoWinter Signs is a story about a girl who is born a deaf mute and had to go through a lot of heart breaking loss in her life Grief so devastating that she thought she had nothing to live for The only way she thinks she will be able to get out of the dark hole she was in was to go away from everyone she knew and start over Only to find out that she has to whether she likes it or not get closure and move on because a lot of people are just waiting for her be ready to do thatIf the first book was about domestic violence and family this one is about loss and grief which I think is tragic and devastating The common theme of the two books in the series is family friendship and love Well love actually in all its forms Like the first book this story embodies the saving grace of unconditional love That it heals all wounds even a blackhole caused by a great loss of one's great and first loveThis story reminds me of when I was in my grade school I was in a special class We were called fast learners I think it was of projects and school work to do than most of the other pupils in our grade level Anyway we were next to the classes of the hearing impaired and the mentally challenged Yes we were exactly where we were supposed to be in the building for special people We were special in our own way I remember we developed a friendship with some of the people from those classes and we learned to do sign language I learned how the signs for the alphabet and some of the most commons signs for beautiful ugly father mother and I love you Later in high school the sign language for the alphabet became very handy when I joined the Girl Scouts It was also very useful talking to a friend who knows sign language without giving away what you are talking about It's like a secret form of communication if there wasn't any deaf mute or anybody else who could understand itI think of this book as Winter Sighs I feel like taking a deep and big sigh every time I think about this story The loss and heart break Winter has to go through at a young age one after the other was just so traumatic It left a very big hole actually a vacuum in her heart and it felt like her heart would never work again I felt that too I felt like my heart stopped beating when I got to that part of the story Winter and Connor's love for each other is what you could call ordained They were made for each other I could feel Connor's great love for Winter even in my pores It was just so strong that even an outsider would never make the mistake of getting in between these two Such love is just so extraordinary and very rare Not to mention that they started as best friends at such a young age and they grew to falling in love with each otherMy favorite part of the story is how Connor and Winter met It was just so hilarious imagining a stick thin Winter hitting a similarly young Connor in the face It was not a cute first meeting but definitely memorable and very hilarious to anyone seeing it Who knew it was a start to a very close friendship and love that two can ever shareThen there's Nolan It seemed like the author has a habit of naming the two leading men in this story with surnames I think it's uniue and cute So Nolan I think he has a lot in common with Connor Aside from of course being attracted and drawn to Winter These two seem to share a lot of traits They are both good teenagers who both grew up with single moms They are both an only child also So it isn't any wonder why Winter felt comfortable and safe with him Nolan and Winter These two both know that there is some special link between them but Winter was just not ready to deal with anything that will remind her of Connor Winter tried denying her feelings for Nolan but in the end she found that she could not go through the same experience of losing someone she loves again After all the push and pull between these two finally Winter gave up and succumbed to the ever powerful pull of love and let Nolan in for good And there were reasons why Nolan had to do the things he did for WinterCharlie and Nicole were so cute also I am glad that in spite of the tragedy that happened in this story most of the characters found their place and love of their lives These two have their own issues but eventually they got married and have gotten over the bad parts of their childhood The same with the other characters even with Sadie who became a better person than she was back in high school A very nice turn of events which doesn't really happen in a lot of stories The bully grew up to realize her faults and apologize for them is such a refreshing thing I hope it happens often in stories and in real lifeI give the book 55 snowflakes This story brings out a lot of emotions to the surface Though loss and tragedy is the most prevalent but hope and recovery is also in the scene Moving on and finding that the heart can still function and beat like it was never shattered after all is a great blessing To find two great loves in one lifetime is such a miracle Winter is very fortunate and she didn't have to forget Connor just because she is now with Nolan Connor is a big part of her and Nolan is such a great guy for knowing the same thing Connor is as much as a part of Nolan as to Winter They are both lucky to have known him This story just oozes with very strong emotions that I can't even help for my chest to feel tight while writing this review This evokes a lot of sad feelings but knowing that everything ended up well with everyone is such a relief Yes a happy ending Thank you Everything was resolve Every issue and obstacle that was brought up in this story was resolved and given a happy ending except for Summer which I am sure is the next book in this series Here is a uote which beautifully summarizes what how and why grief is And no one is ever powerful than grief except for love Only love can soften it's blow and help one to recover from the aftermath of its very earth shattering effects So for everyone who is going through grief right now know that you can take as much time as you can to try to deal with it and when you are ready to come out of that deep hole the sun is just outside ready to welcome you in all it's shining gloryGrief is a hard thing and there is no time limit on how long it will last It could be a month a year a decade or the rest of your life that you mourn over the loss of a loved one a marriage breakdown or a friendship you thought would never end You see grief comes in all shapes but no matter how long it takes know that it's okay to feel and know that when you're ready the sun is waiting right outside your window wanting to shine on you once again Sarah Gai Winter Signs Thank
