Tabitha Johnson is more than just shy. . .
Wanting to serve the Lord and show her family she can amount to something, Tabby enrolls in a class on ventriloquism. When she visits the shop of accomplished ventriloquist Seth Beyes to inquire about buying a dummy, he quickly notices her potential. With the help of Tabby's best friend, Seth begins a campaign to turn Tabby into what he thinks she should be---the perfect woman to be his wife.
Her stuttering and lack of self-confidence have her locked in a trap she can't escape.
But Tabby knows she will never be perfect. Will she ever let go of her shyness and use her talent to serve God? Will Seth be able to love her just as she is? Or will Tabby spend the rest of her life letting her dummy talk for two?
She relished in the warmth of Seth's embrace, until the sharp ringing of the telephone pulled them apart. "Uh, guess I'd better get that," Seth mumbled. He stepped away from Tabby and moved across the room toward the desk where the phone sat.
Tabby looked down at Rose and muttered, "I think I was just saved by the bell."
