The trip to the Cascade Mountains had been Cassie’s idea. But what she thought was going to be a time to rejuvenate and relax with old friends may come at a tragic cost. Cassie Dixon just wants a little time away to forget and to heal after her wild and failed venture in the perfume industry. A camping getaway with the Fergusons and their thirteen-year-old deaf son, Cody, seems like the perfect solution. Cassie watches as Cody grows increasingly restless, chafing under the suffocating protectiveness of his mother. Encouraging him to explore and to have confidence in his God-given talents, Cassie aches for the boy, knowing that hearing is both the audible and inaudible ways in which we hear each other—and God. Then Cody disappears … and Cassie feels responsible. Bear sign is all around. Severe weather threatens. Someone gripped by evil doesn’t care who gets hurt. And even if she finds the boy alive, can Cassie convince him that God has a plan for his life? But the danger stalking close at hand may settle that concern for both of them.
