The Silent Daughter Book Review:

''This one blew me away! I was hooked from start to finish. Felt like I was right there with the characters going through what they were. This is my first from this author but definitely not my last.'' - Netgalley reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐"Schoolgirl missing", the ticker reads, and the camera cuts to a girl''s face. Blonde hair waterfalling over her shoulders, serious eyes, lips a little parted like she''s about to speak. That''s when I realize I''ve been holding my breath, because the gasp when I inhale almost chokes me.Sadie Kelly has lost her job. Until last month, she was a teacher at Horton College - the same high school she went to ten years ago along with her best friend, Fiona. But Fiona died in an accident on their graduation night, in circumstances Sadie''s spent the last ten years trying to forget, and since then nothing''s been the same.Now Sadie''s jobless and living with Fiona''s mother Jan, the woman who''s watched over Sadie since she was a little girl, and the one person Sadie would do anything to protect. But when Sadie hears that Horton schoolgirl Devon Hundley has gone missing, everything changes. Devon is the daughter of Philip Hundley - wealthy school donor, local doctor, and a man Sadie knows all too well. And now Sadie can''t help remembering the last time she saw Devon - and heard her whisper something Sadie''s been trying ever since to forget...A gripping page-turner of family secrets and buried lies, for fans of Kerry Lonsdale, Diane Chamberlain, and Liane Moriarty.SEE WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT BRAND NEW RELEASE THE SILENT DAUGHTER:''This is Claire Amarti''s debut, and she aced it in my opinion. I read this novel in less than 24 hours and if it wasn''t for being a mom and wife I probably would have finished it in one sitting. The Silent Daughter had me turning pages wanting to know how it all was going to end!'' - Goodreads reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐''An incredible and mysterious drama that kept me on my toes the whole time. The storyline was exceptional and the characters engaging and believable.'' - Goodreads reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐''This is an excellent first novel. The story is a suspense with many twists and turns. I didn''t have any idea how the story would end. Sadie has a secret that involves her best friend Fiona who has died 10 year previous to the time the novel takes place. The novel is about secrets and relationships. There are too many secrets to review, just know that many of the characters, who are well developed, have their own secrets which are revealed throughout the novel. The story kept my attention riveted.'' - Netgalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐''This is a modern take on an old school gothic tale complete with the seemingly innocent teacher showing up at an expensive private boarding school with a valise full of secrets. However, the students have their share of secrets and dark pasts, as well as every other character in this book. The Silent Daughter is a well written intricately woven tale of many people confronting the ghosts of their pasts when one of these privileged students goes missing. I really liked most of the characters in this book [...] I look forward to many good novels from this author in the days to come.'' - Goodreads reviewer⭐⭐⭐⭐''This one blew me away! I was hooked from start to finish. Felt like I was right there with the characters going through what they were. This is my first from this author but definitely not my last.'' - Netgalley reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐''The characterisation in this book is a real strength. All of the characters are believable and well rounded- even those we don''t like! The author does a good job of introducing new themes and even when you can see where she is going, the actual reveal is nicely executed.'' - Goodreads reviewer⭐⭐⭐⭐''Plenty of red herrings before we get to a surprising conclusion.'' -Netgalley reviewer

The Silent Sunset Book Review:

THE SILENT SUNSET is a biography of Sirayo Yona Nyeko, born and raised in colonial Uganda, during the middle of the twentieth century. With the advent of the brutal regime of Idi Amin in Uganda, 1971-79, Sirayo sought sanctuary in his own innocence and his faith in mankind, a faith that would be sorely tested with ultimately tragic consequences. His story is just one of the over 300,000 victims of Amin's tyranny, one of the most evil despots of modern history. This book is unique in that it breaks away from the current trend of writing about Amin and instead depicts the brutal real life consequences of the dictator's rule. A first-hand account of one of the victims of Idi Amin. The news about my father first appeared as a headline in the Sunday Times of London in June 1977. The news altered mine and my family's life forever..... From the reviews: Jon Snow, Newscaster, Channel 4 News; '--- a rare intimate account of the searing consequences of being on the receiving end of his brutality---'. Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Columnist for the Independent & The London Evening Standard; '---Jennifer Nyeko-Jones has written a fitting and moving tribute in memory of her father---'. Gary Smailes, Co-founder of Bubblecow, a literacy consultancy; '---The Silent Sunset is a book that will touch your heart---'.

The Silent Patient Book Review:

The instant #1 New York Times bestseller "An unforgettable—and Hollywood-bound—new thriller... A mix of Hitchcockian suspense, Agatha Christie plotting, and Greek tragedy." —Entertainment Weekly The Silent Patient is a shocking psychological thriller of a woman’s act of violence against her husband—and of the therapist obsessed with uncovering her motive. Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word. Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London. Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him....

A Silent Cheer Book Review:

Hearing is one of our most precious senses. It allows us to communicate with family and friends and keeps us in contact with the sounds of life that surround us twenty-four hours a day. Unfortunately, most of us dont realize how important this sense is until hearing problems begin to affect our daily lives. In A Silent Cheer, Dr. Emily F. Roback and her mother, Faye D. Roback-Jones, provide an insiders look at deaf culture, demonstrating how parents of a hearing-impaired or deaf child can learn the ropes of determination, and how every day tens of thousands of Canadians with disabilities continue to make a difference. This memoir follows the Robacks journey from Emilys diagnosis with severe to profound hearing loss when she was three years old. A Silent Cheer tells Emilys inspirational story of facing often overwhelming adversities to achieving success as a doctor of chiropractic medicine, a renowned fitness leader in western Canada, and the president of her own company. In addition, Faye reveals the strategies she used to help her daughters transformation from strawberry farm girl to doctor, including the challenges she overcame to ensure Emily received the same quality education as her peers. Positive and uplifting, A Silent Cheer addresses the dedication, passion, and character necessary to survive and thrive in spite of the odds.

The Silent Treatment Book Review:

For readers of The Light We Lost and Me Before You, a life-affirming, deeply moving story about lies, loss and a love that is louder than words. “The premise alone had me, but The Silent Treatment itself is just heartrendingly lovely. It’s beautiful, so moving and clever. I truly adored it.” — Josie Silver, #1 New York Times bestselling author of One Day in December A lifetime together. Six months of silence. One last chance. By all appearances, Frank and Maggie share a happy, loving marriage. But for the past six months, they have not spoken. Not a sentence, not a single word. Maggie isn’t sure what, exactly, provoked Frank’s silence, though she has a few ideas. Day after day, they have eaten meals together and slept in the same bed in an increasingly uncomfortable silence that has become, for Maggie, deafening. Then Frank finds Maggie collapsed in the kitchen, unconscious, an empty package of sleeping pills on the table. Rushed to the hospital, she is placed in a medically induced coma while the doctors assess the damage. If she regains consciousness, Maggie may never be the same. Though he is overwhelmed at the thought of losing his wife, will Frank be able to find his voice once again—and explain his withdrawal—or is it too late? “A remarkably assured debut which doesn’t go where you expect it to go. I very much look forward to seeing what she writes next.” — Jojo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author

The Silent History Book Review:

A generation of children forced to live without words. It begins as a statistical oddity: a spike in children born with acute speech delays. Physically normal in every way, these children never speak and do not respond to speech; they don't learn to read, don't learn to write. As the number of cases grows to an epidemic level, theories spread. Maybe it's related to a popular antidepressant; maybe it's environmental. Or maybe these children have special skills all their own. The Silent History unfolds in a series of brief testimonials from parents, teachers, friends, doctors, cult leaders, profiteers, and impostors (everyone except, of course, the children themselves), documenting the growth of the so-called silent community into an elusive, enigmatic force in itself—alluring to some, threatening to others. Both a bold storytelling experiment and a propulsive reading experience, Eli Horowitz, Matthew Derby, and Kevin Moffett's The Silent History is at once thrilling, timely, and timeless.
