Steffi doesn`t talk. Rhys can`t hear. They understand each other perfectly. Love isn`t always a lightning strike. Sometimes it`s the rumbling roll of thunder. From the bestselling author of Beautiful Broken Things, Sara Barnard`s A Quiet Kind of Thunder is stunning love story about the times when a whisper is as good as a shout. Steffi has been a selective mute for most of her life – she`s been silent for so long that she feels completely invisible. But Rhys, the new boy at school, sees her. He`s deaf, and her knowledge of basic sign language means that she`s assigned to look after him. To Rhys it doesn`t matter that Steffi doesn`t talk and, as they find ways to communicate, Steffi finds that she does have a voice, and that she`s falling in love with the one person who makes her feel brave enough to use it.
