In 1837, Samuel Gridley Howe set about rescuing Laura Bridgman, a deaf-blind seven year old, from the darkness and silence of the tomb. Bridgman learned to finger-spell, to read raised letters, to write legibly and even eloquently, and became a living exhibit for theological and psychological debates, with influential writers and reformers - Darwin, Carlyle, and Dickens among them - visiting or writing about her. But by her death in 1889, she had been wholly eclipsed by the prettier, more ingratiating Helen Keller. The Imprisoned Guest is an absorbing, inspiring account of the intersection of two extraordinary lives and their time. Written by Elisabeth Gitter. Pages 341. Softcover
