After an intense battle with sickness as an infant, Joshua was lucky to be alive. As a result, Joshua's body would heal, but the infection left him Deaf. The struggles that awaited him would take more than medicine to conquer. They would take determination and resolve. While many people attempt to quiet their lives to find peace, Joshua struggled to navigate a silent world, a world that often reinforced his suspicion that he could not succeed. However, with the undying love of his family and the unyielding support of his mentors and instructors, Joshua takes readers on his journey to conquer stereotypes, prejudice, and his own attitudes. Readers see the world through his eyes, as Joshua explores the quiet, vivid, and elaborately metaphoric Library, the sanctuary that houses the symbolic archives of memories that make him who he is. Follow Joshua the Librarian as he becomes a traveler, reaching outside the confines of his quiet surroundings and joining a larger world that dramatically alters his perceptions. Despite feeling so alone inside the confines of his own world, with seemingly unanswered prayers, he finally realizes that he has never been alone. With elaborate imagery, he inspires readers that they, too, can succeed and change.
