Book Review: Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil

“As if the jealously of a lover could ever compete with the ferocity of a mother”  Sarah A. Denzil, Silent Child
When six year old Aiden goes missing in the midst of a flash flood Emma Price’s life is ripped apart. Ten years later Emma is trying to move on with her life, while heavily pregnant and living with her new husband she receives the call of a lifetime. Aiden has been found. Sixteen years old and unable to speak, they must embark on a journey to answer the burning question, what happened to Aiden?
This is my first book from Sarah A. Denzil and from the beginning it had you hooked, it started you right in the action and managed to keep up a constant pace throughout. I enjoyed the style of writing and the clues which were left throughout the book, I also felt that she managed to capture some of the essence of human nature remarkably well, we as people do not always make the right decisions, we do not always think or act rationally especially in trying situations. I think this was especially evident with Emma trying to merge the two realities she is experiencing, the memories of her life with her six year old child with the life in the present with the introduction of a sixteen year old stranger. Some of the characters did annoy me at times, and the contents does touch on some sensitive subjects but it is a book I would recommend.

Rating: 8.5/10

Would I read again: No I don’t think this is the kind of book you read again

Would I Recommend: Yes

Would I read another book from this author: Yes
