ABOUT THE QUALITY OF SILENCE
The gripping, moving story of a mother and daughter’s quest to uncover a dark secret in the Alaskan wilderness, from the New York Timesbestselling author of Sister and Afterwards
Thrillingly suspenseful and atmospheric, The Quality of Silence is the story of Yasmin, a beautiful astrophysicist, and her precocious deaf daughter, Ruby, who arrive in a remote part of Alaska to be told that Ruby’s father, Matt, has been the victim of a catastrophic accident. Unable to accept his death as truth, Yasmin and Ruby set out into the hostile winter of the Alaskan tundra in search of answers. But as a storm closes in, Yasmin realizes that a very human danger may be keeping pace with them. And with no one else on the road to help, they must keep moving, alone and terrified, through an endless Alaskan night.
I found the writing in this one well done, and the mystery aspect kept me engrossed throughout the book. Some parts were a little slow moving, but I really liked Ruby.
What pulled me in the most was the cover because I don’t normally read mystery type books, but I really loved the Alaska setting! I don’t want to say too much since it is a mystery book, so I feel like a lot will give it away!
