Synopsis (From Goodreads)

On 24th November Yasmin and her deaf daughter Ruby arrived in Alaska.

Within hours they were driving alone across a frozen wilderness

Where nothing grows

Where no one lives

Where tears freeze

And night will last for another 54 days.

They are looking for Ruby’s father.

Travelling deeper into a silent land.

They still cannot find him.

And someone is watching them in the dark.

My Review

The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton was a slow burn. A very slow burn. The first half of the book I thought the MC was out of her mind and there really was no way her husband was still alive, coupled with the fact that she was driving into a horrendous Alaska storm (even by Native standards) with her deaf 10yo daughter; made me wince the whole time.

Regardless of whether I thought it was a dumb decision on the MCs part, it was still pretty suspenseful in the beginning. Would they make it through the storm? Is her husband really still alive?

After a while though, it kind of felt like it was dragging on. There wasn’t really anything happening for quite a while. About half way through we finally get some action in a stalker and some graphic pictures to the MCs email. The whole time your left clueless as to what is happening, and where it is going to go.

I love mystery’s that can still really surprise me, and The Quality of Silence did an excellent job! I will definitely be picking up Ms. Luptons next book.
