…Are you listening?
Twenty-three years ago, Zachary Calder, Viscount Salisborne, received the best gift a boy could ask for: a mother. She brought light and laughter to both he and his father. However, the love Zachary feels for his parents is nothing compared to the immense loneliness and dejection he carries every day. While his childhood was filled with strong, encouraging people he can’t help but feel like a stranger in a large, disjointed world that had no place for him – a Deaf lord in 1838, England.
Elizabeth Temple, crossing the Atlantic, is excited to accompany her aunt to Queen’s Victoria’s long-anticipated coronation. The trip – and coronation – had been planned for almost a full year, but as always, Elizabeth’s life went awry, and delayed the excursion. But, now, with her feet firmly planted on the deck of the Golden Sparrow, Elizabeth is bursting with excitement for her first journey to England, the many sites to see, and the wonderful people she would meet. Life in America was wonderful, but she needed something new, something exciting!
Will Zachary find his place in the world? Will Elizabeth find her adventure? Or are the two one and the same?

Isn’t he awesome??
And the people I’ve decided fit the characters best are Nina Dobrev (from Vampire Diaries) and Chace Crawford (from Gossip Girl)
