Book Review: Beyond The Silence


Beyond The Silence
By Tracie Peterson & Kimberley Woodhouse

The shadows over this olive grove hide more than just the truth. 

Lillian Porter has always wanted to fulfill her mother’s dream of going west, so when she hears about a nanny position in Angels Camp, California, she defies her grandfather and takes a chance on a new future. But she quickly wonders if she made the right choice. Murky rumors swirl around Woodward Colton, her new employer, but the gossip doesn’t match the man Lillian comes to know.

Still something dark did happen in the family’s past. Lillian’s seven-year-old charge hasn’t spoken in over a year. Gently, Lillian tries to coax him out of his shell, hoping one day he’ll feel safe enough to share what scared him. But the Colton olive farm is no longer a safe place. Lillian encounters suspicious characters on their land and mysterious damage done to the farm. When the housekeeper is brutally attacked, the town once again suspects the worst. Will discovering the truth help Lillian clear the name of the man she has come to love – or will it endanger her even more?

My thoughts: In the past I’ve read a few of Tracie Peterson’s books like A Matter of Heart, Love Everlasting and Refining Fire.   So going into Beyond the Silence I expected quite a story, and luckily I wasn’t disappointed. I feel absolutely connected to the main character Lillian Porter and I love the whole mystery throughout the book and of course the coming of age theme. Beyond The Silence is a fantastic book to read especially on those lazy weekend days.
