Annie Trimble lives in a solitary world that no one enters or understands. As delicate and beautiful as the tender blossoms of the Oregon spring, she is shunned by a town that misinterprets her affliction. But cruelty cannot destroy the love Annie holds in her heart.
Alex Montgomery is horrified to learn his wild younger brother forced himself on a helpless "idiot girl." Tormented by guilt, Alex agrees to marry her and raise the babe she carries as his own. But he never dreams he will grow to cherish his lovely, mute, misjudged Annie--her childlike innocence, her womanly charms and the wondrous way she views her world. And he becomes determined to break through the wall of silence surrounding her--to heal...and to healed by Annie's sweet song of love.

This story touched my heart and more! The beginning of the story is truly horrific; Annie Trimble is a sweet, curious girl who innocence is stolen away from her, but it is with the love and tenderness of Alex Montgomery that Annie's world is made right again or more accurately, made real for the first time in her life. It isn't until Annie meets Alex that the truth of herself is discovered and Annie is able to triumph. Love is worth the wait and true love is never selfish is the mesage that shines through this story. It is truly magnificent!
