Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marnie comes to the remote fishing hamlet of Torcurra as the reluctant bride of Isake Isherwood, a lord of her parents' farm. But two days later, while thatching the roof, Isake falls to his death. Marnie's only kindness comes from Father Brannan, the village priest, and Raver, the strange mad boy whose incoherent cries belie his gentle heart. Taking him in one windy night, Marnie makes a startling discovery: Raver is not mad but deaf.

Determined to communicate with the boy whom Marnie now calls Raven, she invents a system of hand-words. Raven learns quickly and has soon all but shed his madness. Yet while Marnie and Raven forge a deep bond, the villagers, already suspicious of Marnie's role in Isake's death, see his transformation as the result of witchcraft. Even as Marnie's and Raven's bond turns to love, and as they uncover the mysterious value of their cottage, Marnie is forced into a witchcraft trial where the test of the iron bar will determine her fate.

Set in the times when magic was a force to be reckoned with, The Raging Quiet is the epic saga of a remarkable woman whose only crime is being different.

About the Author

Sherryl Jordan writes: "All my life I have felt a great affinity with deaf people, and have loved sign language. For several years I worked with profoundly deaf children in schools, and spoke with them through signs. Marnie's dealings with Raven — her difficulties, frustration, despair, joy, and triumph — are all things I have experienced."

Sherryl Jordan is the author of Winter of Fire, an IRA/CBC Young Adult Choice, a Bank Street School of Education Children's Book of the Year, an ALA/YALSA Recommended Book for the Reluctant Young Adult Reader, and an ALA/YALSA Best Book for Young Adults; Wolf-Woman, an ALA/YALSA Best Book for Young Adults; and The Juniper Game, an IRA/CBC Young Adult Choice and a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age. She lives in Tauranga, New Zealand.
