Echoes of Silence

Christy Wall

Paul Derick was a cattle rancher. He spent his life protecting his family and his ranch. He understood the sun and the rain, the wind, and the blizzards that swept across the broad Wyoming plains. Those were enemies he could see and fight. But he could not protect his family from the sorrow that pervaded his home. His once happy daughter was now only a dull shadow wrapped within her silence. Until one day, her sister threw open the door of their home and with flashing eyes, cried out 'The horses are here!'. With that burst of light, the darkness cracked and hope found its way.

Praise for this book

"I loved Echoes of Silence. It was so refreshing to read such a heartwarming and genuine book about love, family, faith, horses, cattle, and ranching. As a fourth-generation rancher and horse breeder, I appreciate that Christy kept the ranching and horsemanship scenes accurate and authentic. As the world becomes more modern, it is important that our legacy is shared and written, so it is not forgotten." -Erica Johnson-Valdez, JO Bar Ranch and Quarter Horses


"Meningitis is a little-known disease that causes two out of a thousand children each year to become deaf or suffer brain damage. Christy has described with piercing clarity and beauty the complex emotional journey of those who suffer from this illness. She writes with hope and joy and shows the vital importance of family, nature, and the healing effect of an animal's faithful friendship." -Lynda Dougherty-Kelly, MS-SLP Speech Therapist
