An enormously engaging romance with strong political underpinnings, You Speak for Me Now by Sandy Graham takes readers on a rollicking ride as they follow an unlikely couple in the struggle to survive against the odds. John McEwan is an outspoken man who is in love with Emma Simon, a deaf, introverted character. John McEwan's involvement in political activities earns him fierce enemies, forcing him and Emma to live in seclusion. With mounting vicissitudes, can their love survive?

Sandy Graham has written a story that is rooted in realism, crafting scenes that reflect the challenges of contemporary Americans and offering an honest exploration of social issues and statuses. It is a fascinating romance set against the chaotic political and social backdrop of today's American world. The characters are finely drawn, and from the opening paragraph, readers instantly get a unique portrait of Emma, a character that is flawed and struggles to get her thoughts out. ''It began when the teacher reading a roll call heard no
response to her name. He looked up and told her to say “present” when he saw her raised hand. She signalled her deafness with gestures.'' This romance that spans decades examines this character's resilience and grit as she struggles to rise above her handicap. The couple is really unusual — a deaf person in love with someone musically gifted. You Speak for Me Now sparkles with elegant writing and engaging dialogues, a story that breaks, soothes, and uplifts the human heart. It is a mesmerizing emotional rollercoaster.
