    Refreshing & Unique

    The Silence, my first read by Joss Stirling, was a creepy, gripping thriller and very different from many other novels with a similar theme. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it held my attention with its unsettling atmosphere. The story was packed with drama, handling issues of greed, hatred and theft, as well as rape, child abuse, sexual abuse and drug use. These subjects were handled very sensitively, however abuse was a major theme throughout. The Silence exceeded all of my expectations and I admired how Joss Stirling managed to create such unique protagonists, as well as being people to whom I could so completely relate. Jenny, the mute violinist, was a fascinating character and the gradual revelation of her childhood trauma had me enthralled. Jonah too, despite his cynical and questionable attitude to life, became a much loved character by the end of the book. Each of the characters had a unique trait, as well as great depth. The story moved between the past and present, enabling me to piece together the stories of the characters in a way that kept me engaged and wondering what might happen next. Every time I thought I had the characters worked out, new information came to fruition that threw me. I loved that the events and revelations in the book were often shocking and unexpected. What really made The Silence a standout novel for me was the part that the house played in the narrative. The chapters told from the perspective of Gallant House made it seem as though there was another character in the story and it was fascinating to see how the house affected its inhabitants, particularly in Bridget's case. I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Silence which had me on the edge of my seat until the last page and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It should interest anyone who is looking for something challenging and unusual. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Harper Impulse and Killer Reads/One More Chapter via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
