​Author Billie Kelpin takes her short story and essay writing into the realm of the novel.  Set in the 60s, the novel follows a young 20-year-old, Kate Kensington in a coming of age tale that requires the courage of conviction at a time of revolution. As a former teacher of the deaf and sign language interpreter, Billie brings with the novel a background into a fascinating field and the culture of a community rich in struggle and triumph.
