Seeds of disquiet: one deaf woman’s experience Cheryl M. Heppner
Highly recommended. — Library JournalBridges the gap between the silent and the hearing worlds. — Publishers WeeklyIn her autobiography Seeds of Disquiet, Cheryl Heppner writes of experiencing severe hearing loss — twice. Spinal meningitis caused a profound loss of hearing when she was six, and for the next 18 years she worked hard to live the life of a normal hearing person. Through exhaustive work in speech therapy and speechreading, she excelled in school and college, performing Herculean feats without the assistance of trained interpreters or notetakers.Then, when she was 25, two strokes left her completely deaf. For the next 20 years she worked to recreate her life through sign language and the Deaf community. The process stunned her by revealing how much she had missed before. Initially embittered, Cheryl Heppner later went on to use her astonishing energy as an advocate for deaf and hard of hearing people.Seeds of Disquiet celebrates her accomplishments, the most significant of which, perhaps, was her reconciliation with her loved ones from her former life with her new outlook.
