In This Sign.
Greenberg, Joanne
The story of Margaret, the daughter of deaf parents, depicts the frustrations and difficulties encountered in the silent world of the deaf. The text describes the family struggling through a life made more difficult by the naivete of the parents who, insulated from sound, received an inadequate education and were perplexed by things that most people take for granted. Margaret's role as interpreter is explored as she (who can hear) overcomes her initial language handicap but becomes increasingly reluctant to use the signs which are her parent's means of communication. The emotions of the family are woven into descriptions of their life and development. (RJ)
