dc.description.abstract Harry Littleton has been profoundly deaf since the age of eight. Now a vice principal at a school for the Deaf, he wakes up one morning to find his hearing has suddenly returned. Fearing ostracization from the Deaf community and especially from his wife, Lindsay, Harry decides to keep his newfound hearing a secret. He covertly explores the world of sound while pretending to still be deaf. Harry meets a singer, Penny, who encourages his passion for music. He steals time away for jam sessions and learns how to play the bass. As he struggles to keep his two identities from colliding, Harry’s friendship with Penny grows while his marriage deteriorates when Lindsay begins to suspect his double life. Things become even more complicated when he unwittingly overhears a nefarious plan to shut down his beloved school. Harry must face the music and decide what’s worth saving: his school and his marriage, or his secret life. Can he find a way to reconcile both worlds, or will he be forced to choose between them? en_US
