Reader recommendation: Deafening

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


Frances Itani's Deafening tells what it was like in Canada during World War I through the story of a deaf mute and her family as her husband, a hearing and talking man, goes to war. It's a wonderfully historical and old fashioned novel.
