But can a child of eight with no prior language be taught? And is Mary up to the task? With newfoundpurpose, Mary arrives only to discover that there is much more to the girl's story—and the circumstances of her confinement—thanshe ever could have imagined. Suddenly, teaching her and freeing her from the prison of her isolation, takes on much greatermeaning, and peril.Riveting and complex, delicately nuanced and fervently feminist, Set Me Free is a masterful stand-alone companion to Show Mea Sign, and a searing exposé of ableism, racism, and colonialism that will challenge you to think differently about the dignity andcapacity within every human being.
