Escape From Silence relates one family's experience with cochlear implant technology for their two sons, both born profoundly deaf. It's not an ordinary story, but the author's funny, touching, hopeful telling of it will strike a chord with all parents. Having a child diagnosed with a hearing loss or any physical challenge can be an isolating experience. Greene's book affirms for families that they are not alone. In addition to serving as a useful guide regarding the implant process, it provides inspiration for other families facing similar challenges as well.
