May and Annie are sisters living on the Isle of Wight at the end of the nineteenth century, but they couldn't be more different. May is a great reader while Annie is "blind", or dyslexic. After their mother dies these Victorian girls are forced to pool their skills in order to understand the gaps in their family history. An encounter with a mysterious uncle in London puts Annie in charge for a change, and leads to a surprising reconciliation.

A Lovely Story About Two Close Knit Sisters
- Teresa "It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing."
Dyslexia, Childhood, Sisters
Draws you in!
It warmed my heart! Can't think of anything else to say that wouldn't spoil it.
Oh, I absolutely LOVED the quality of her voice! It's a voice that you really want to keep listening to. I'd likely keep listening to a book I didn't like, just to listen to her. I love how she says the name Annie.
The part when Annie overhears her father telling someone how she was stupid made me think deeper about an issue that I do not have. It helped me understand better.
Very enjoyable listen! Wonderful voice, and a nice and short story. This book is very instrumental in educating people on what dyslexia is and how it can affect
a child and their family.
