Abstract:

"Silent Sonora details the life of a heroic young girl, Lillian Carroll, whose family resides in two tents during the 1920s and 1930s. Set in depression-era Scottsdale Arizona, the book reveals Lillian's daily life experiences, the family's struggles, and her quest for a better life through education. Lillian tells readers directly about tent life, the local "emerging" Arizona communities, and the ongoing hardships she and her family confront. Both of Lillian's parents are deaf -- her father works in the local agricultural industry, while her strong-willed mother endeavors to make the best home she can for her children. Lillian admits that "life was tough," but assures us she and her family had good times, too. Ultimately, Lillian's desire for a better education helps her situation. Her love of family and strong faith give her the support she needs to finally gain independence." --Amazon.com.
