In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son’s red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year – a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned.
His body was never recovered.
Ten years later, Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life. She’s married, pregnant, and in control again… until Aiden returns.
Too traumatized to speak, he raises endless questions and answers none. Only his body tells the story of his decade-long disappearance. The historic broken bones and injuries cast a mere glimpse into the horrors Aiden has experienced. Aiden never drowned. Aiden was taken. As Emma attempts to reconnect with her now teenage son, she must unmask the monster who took him away from her. But who, in their tiny village, could be capable of such a crime?
It’s Aiden who has the answers, but he cannot tell the unspeakable.
WOW. This is the first book I have read by Sarah and it was bloody brilliant! I was hooked throughout and connected with Emma from the beginning (poor Emma). Silent Child is written well and easy to read! It will also keep you guessing right till the final few intense chapters. I loved it. Cannot wait to dive into more books written by Sarah but this has set my expectation high. Silent Child was released on the 22nd of January and I would highly recommend it to you all! Just how will Emma cope with her situation will she crumble and fall? OR will she fight back? You will have to read it in order to find out… A well deserved five stars from me. Enjoy, I did.
