“Beyond the Silence”, written by is a beautifully written book. Set in Angel’s Camp, California, which is a real location, the well-researched description of the area and the area’s merchants gives this novel its appeal.
Lillian Porter accepts the position of nanny to a small boy whose mother was murdered in front of him. He has not spoken a word since. His father desperately wants help for his son because the little one is wasting away and very depressed. Lillian is the answer to his prayers. Sadly, the townspeople’s gossip fortifies some’s belief that Woodward Colton murdered his own wife even though he had an alibi. Someone out there wants him and his family dead.
I thought that this book was extremely interesting and the story line kept moving quickly. I really like Christian novels, but am not a fan of those which seem to be “preachy”. This novel did have sections that I thought were a little too intensely sermonizing or moralizing. While I agree with what was written, I thought these sections were a little long and took away from the story.
I received a print copy of this book from LitFuse Publicity in return for my honest review.
