Jenny Dove, the main character in The Nothing Girl by Jodi Taylor, has a severe stutter.
From the publisher:
Getting a life isn’t always easy. And hanging on to it is even harder…
Known as ‘The Nothing Girl’ because of her severe stutter and chronically low self-confidence, Jenny Dove is only just prevented from ending it all by the sudden appearance of Thomas, a mystical golden horse only she can see. Under his guidance, Jenny unexpectedly acquires a husband – the charming and chaotic Russell Checkland – and for her, nothing will ever be the same again.
