Annie's Song by Catherine Anderson
Why I read this: Ames read it for the re-read challenge last month, it sounded very good.

Annie Trimble lives in a solitary world that on one enters or understands. As delicate and beautiful as the tender blossoms of the Oregon spring, she is shunned by a town that misinterprets her affliction. But cruelty cannot destroy the love Annie holds in her heart.

Alex Montgomery is horrified to learn his wild younger brother forced himself on a helpless "idiot girl." Tormented by guilt, Alex agrees to marry her and raise the babe she carries as his own. But he never dreams he will grow to cherish his lovely, mute, misjudged Annie—her childlike innocence, her womanly charms and the wondrous way she views her world. And he becomes determined to break through the wall of silence surrounding her—to heal—and to be healed by Annie's sweet song of love.

Annie's Song was a good romance that left a warm, fluffy feeling in my heart. I just love feeling good at the end of a romance and thinking, "That's how all love should be."

Poor Annie didn't have it easy in life. Everyone thought her to be dimwitted, and she was treated as such. Her parents loved her, but didn't show it to her in the right way. They kept her hidden most of the time thinking that it was best for her, but really, it just made things worse.

After Annie is attacked and becomes pregnant, Alex, the attackers brother, steps up and marries Annie.

At first Alex thinks just what everyone else thinks... that Annie is just some dumb girl who doesn't know anything. After getting a wake up call from his housekeeper, he soon finds out that there is nothing mentally wrong with Annie, she simply can't hear.

Together, they find ways to communicate, and as Alex helps Annie, he falls head over heels in love with her.

Reading Annie's Song felt like magic. It was like a different version of an old fashioned Cinderella story.

Great book, great story. A.
