She has been involved in post-graduate education following the successful completion of the FRCA final exam in 2008, and is now the Course Director for the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine's exam preparatory course and the Deputy National Lead for e-ICM.
"Marsh's debut is an astonishing achievement, delving readers into the mind of a woman who lives in silence but whose mind bursts with a fierce intelligence and wit. A sobering look at the way people with disabilities were treated in the past, as well as an inside view of one of the greatest scientific achievements of our time. Remarkable." --Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Spectacular

"Beautifully written and illuminating... Excellently conveys the experience of being deaf in a hearing world." --Priscilla Morris, Women's Prize Shortlisted author of Black Butterflies

"A fantastic novel. Shines a light into a hidden corner of history." --Louise Hare, author of This Lovely City and Miss Aldridge Regrets

"In this ambitious debut, Marsh paints a landscape of history that is unforgettable. Through the eyes of a deaf woman, we experience the isolation, confusion, and victories of living in a world of silence, while being given a story of one of the greatest scientists of our time. A triumph!" --Serena Burdick, bestselling author of The Stolen Book of Evelyn Aubrey

[A] beautifully written debut... Inspired by real accounts of Alexander Graham Bell's Deaf students, Marsh's story shows a lesser-known side to the famous inventor while also encouraging readers to contemplate the concept of finding one's true voice." --Library Journal

"Absolutely brilliant. An important story, so beautifully told. Ellen Lark is unforgettable." --Emilia Hart, New York Times bestselling author of Weyward

"Readers will enjoy the unique voice of a woman whose loss of hearing and struggle to fit into normal society has shaped her entire life." --Booklist
