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 her the unspeakable.
This dark and disturbing psychological novel is a page-turner you will not be able to put down.
What readers are saying about Silent Child:
"Everyone, buy this book, it's brilliant. I just kept reading it, instead of cleaning. Now I'm sad it's ended."
"A tense, haunting story which I had to finish in one sitting."
"What a fantastic read. Kept me on the edge of my seat 'til the end."
"One of the best books I have read. I stayed up most of the night to read it."
"I read this book from cover to cover in one sitting. It's been a long time since a book has captivated me so much to do that. Gripping and full of twists and turns."
Wow!!!!! I’m speechless!!!!! I didn’t want this one to end. This was definitely by far my favorite read of the year. I don’t know how another book is going to top this one. I was on the edge of my seat the whole entire time. With this book I had every emotion possible. At one point I even needed a box of tissues by my side. This book is not for the faint at heart. I had a hard time getting through some parts but it was worth it in the end. Oh and that ending was totally shocking. I’m lucky I didn’t have a heart attack. I couldn’t believe what I was reading. I had a clue at the beginning of the book what might have happened but it didn’t prepare me to what really happened and why. There was more to the story than what I knew. I do want to tell everyone this author wrote a sequel to this book a couple years ago along with a short story involving Aidens Story. I’m so exited to be reading those next. I’ve read this author before and have loved her books but this one made me love her even more if that’s possible. Thank you to Sarah A Denzil for writing such great books. I can’t wait to read more of them.
In conclusion, the plot, the characters and all the twists in this book made this book an enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
