Real-life scientists have been "speaking" with gorillas using American Sign Language for over thirty years. Now Angela Hunt explores the possibility of true communication between humans and animals in her exciting new novel.For eight years, Glee Granger has taught, tended, and loved a young gorilla named Sema. When the zoo that owns the animal presses for custody, Glee is forced to surrender "her girl," Sema, to a captive environment, never dreaming that an experience in the zoo will change both their lives forever.The Bible tells us that if we seek to know who made the earth, we need only "ask the animals." What might they say? Angela Hunt's exquisite story imagines an illuminating answer.
A love unlike any other...a story of sacrifice and the unspoken connections that bring us together.
For the last eight years, Glee Granger has centered her life around Sema--they live together, play together, eat together, and "talk" together. Though Sema isn't the first gorilla to use sign language, Glee has pushed their interaction to breakthrough levels. Technically, however, Sema isn't hers. She belongs to the zoo where she was born--and the zoo wants its gorilla back. Glee's only option for continuing her work is to join the zoo staff. At first reluctant, Glee begins to see real possibilites in their new arrangement...until the unthinkable happens. One event overturns everything Glee thought she knew about humans and animals, the seen and the unseen, the spoken...and the unspoken.
She taught a gorilla to talk. Now can Glee learn to listen?
