Publisher Description

A father and daughter living in the remote Appalachian mountains must reckon with the ghosts of their past in Kimi Cunningham Grant's These Silent Woods, a mesmerizing novel of suspense.

No electricity, no family, no connection to the outside world.

For eight years, Cooper and his young daughter, Finch, have lived in isolation in a remote cabin in the northern Appalachian woods. And that's exactly the way Cooper wants it, because he's got a lot to hide. Finch has been raised on the books filling the cabin’s shelves and the beautiful but brutal code of life in the wilderness. But she’s starting to push back against the sheltered life Cooper has created for her—and he’s still haunted by the painful truth of what it took to get them there.

The only people who know they exist are a mysterious local hermit named Scotland, and Cooper's old friend, Jake, who visits each winter to bring them food and supplies. But this year, Jake doesn't show up, setting off an irreversible chain of events that reveals just how precarious their situation really is. Suddenly, the boundaries of their safe haven have blurred—and when a stranger wanders into their woods, Finch’s growing obsession with her could put them all in danger. After a shocking disappearance threatens to upend the only life Finch has ever known, Cooper is forced to decide whether to keep hiding—or finally face the sins of his past.

Vividly atmospheric and masterfully tense, These Silent Woods is a poignant story of survival, sacrifice, and how far a father will go when faced with losing it all.

Hard to put down. It’s not what I thought and I loved it. Loved the characters and story line. Bravo

*If I remember correctly, there is one cuss word. Other than that, it is a clean book.

Due to some things that Cooper has done, he and Finch now live off the grid in Jake's cabin. Cooper knows how to survive out in the woods because of his military experience. Once a year, Jake brings them supplies. However, this year Jake doesn't show. Things then start to descend into chaos, and Cooper's afraid his secrets are going to ruin everything.

This book is so well written. It made me cry. It's such a unique story, and I found myself drawn in. I immediately fell in love with Finch, and I loved Cooper and Finch's dynamic.

Rating: 5/5
Warnings:
