Annie's Song was my first book by Catherine Anderson and it is one of my favorite written by her. The story was so sweet and at times, sad. It is about Annie, a deaf girl who lives a simple and lonely life. She comes across gentle and almost fragile but instead of feeling sorry for her, I was inspired. Especially since she is assaulted and as a result becomes pregnant. She finds her knight in shining armor in Alex. He was a wonderful hero. Usually I like alpha heroes but he was a beta whose traits made him likeable and perfect for Annie. They both brought something to the relationship. She taught him how to look at life differently, to appreciate the simple and meaningful things. He teaches her to face her fears and take on challenges. They were a couple I wanted to make it from the start. Their journey is so beautiful and in the end it did leave me satisfied and very happy.
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.
