Rose slips into a Broadway theater to watch Lillian Mayhew rehearse, infuriating the actress, who turns out to be Rose's mother. Mayhew locks Rose in the dressing room until someone can get her home, but she escapes through a window and runs to the American Museum of Natural History, where she is overwhelmed by the huge Ahnighito meteorite and chivvied by guards. She hides but is found by Museum worker Walter, who turns out to be her brother. He takes her to his home where they spend a loving evening together, and he watches over her as she sleeps.; Deaf child Rose is obsessed with film star Lillian Mayhew, slipping away from her speech-reading tutor to see Lillian in "Daughter of the Storm." Afterward she sees that the theater will convert to sound, then is herself caught in a storm on the way home. She cuts up the speech reading book (and her father's newspaper) to make models of New York City landmarks. Packing a bag and taking the Mayhew scrapbook and a birthday post card signed "love Walter," she slips away and takes the ferry from Hoboken to New York.; In 1977, the elderly Rose makes her way to the bookshop, where she recognizes Ben from articles he has from his father -- her son. She takes him by subway to Queen's Museum of Art where they watch night fall on the New York City Panorama. Later he watches night fall on the city itself, with memories of his mother but in company with his new-found grandmother and his new-found friend, and his first halting words in his new-found language.; A pair of wolves race toward the reader.
