WITHOUT A WORD tells the story of a young woman who falls for a mysterious loner whose true identity can destroy everything she has worked for.
After years of sacrifice, Hanna Rutherford moves to an isolated mill town to embark on her new career as a speech-language pathologist. Hanna is instantly attracted to the quiet strength of Hank. Each with troubled pasts, they are connected in their need to reinvent themselves and their relationship gives each of them a renewed sense of hope for the future.
Hope turns to despair when Hank’s secret is revealed and they can no longer be together. The consequences would destroy both of their futures.
They attempt to put their feelings aside when tragedy strikes. Hank is the only one Hanna can turn to. With each fleeting touch, tension and desire rise as the rules that govern their choices become blurred. But they would never intentionally cross the line. Or would they?
Without A Word is an unpublished manuscript for a full-length novel. It was previously titled, Unspeakable.
