    Exciting relationship drama

    In London, neophyte attorney Gina Tennison meets Carson Page, CEO of Page Engineering, when her car accidentally hits his Rolls Royce. Though he has many business successes, Carson suffers headaches because he cannot reach his little boy Joey, who he dearly loves. He learns that Gina suffered from deafness at one time yet has gone on to become a lawyer. Though she received transplants that help her hear, he marvels how well she can hear. <P>Her respect for Carson dips quickly when she rescues Joey from the road, realizing the child is deaf. She lectures Carson for not attending to his son, but he angrily strikes back at her until he notices Joey refuses to let her go. Gina and Joey speak using sign language to an amazed Carson. Joey refuses to let her go so her boss, wanting Carson as a client, insists she accompany them. As Gina encourages Joey and Carson to communicate their love and need for one another, she falls in love with both of them, but has no hopes that the father, unlike the son, will return her love. <P>FOR THE SAKE OF HIS CHILD is an entertaining tale that combines a warm relationship romance with the problems confronting a deaf child in a world of noise. The story line is fun and enlightening as the romance never trivializes Joey¿s plight and accompanying fears. The three main characters seem genuine, but Joey¿s biological mother is a bit too Cruella. Still, readers will enjoy Lucy Gordan¿s delightfully elucidating relationship drama. <P>Harriet Klausner
