"Diane Chambers has written a strong, compassionate story. Her teaching of sign to a deaf-blind, elderly man tells us that we can, and should, teach, learn, rise, rejoice and gain in wisdom until we die."
Joanne Greenberg, internationally renown author, of In This Sign, and I Never Promised You a Rose Garden.
"Not only did I learn a lot about deaf-blindness, but also about the day-to-day activities of interpreters/teachers. The high level of professional competency and judgment, the extensive commitment of time necessary for the teaching process, and the need to engage the family and associates of students in the rehabilitation process really comes through to the reader."
Alvin Roberts, Bureau of Blind Services Quality Assurance Administrator, Carbondale Illinois
"Candid and inspiring...On her unforgettable journey with Bert Riedel, Diane faced herself, rearranged herself, and came back to write movingly of the experience."
Eldon Ragland, President of Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind, Alumni Association and past President of the Colorado Association of the Deaf
"This book made me cry. It helped me remember why I do this." Lindsey Antle, sign language interpreter, Colorado
