Secrets can kill and Danni Brooks knows that better than anyone.
When her husband and two of her three children perish in a devastating house fire, Danni is sure it is arson. She’s even more sure that her and her eldest daughter Mia were meant to die in the fire too. But they are just a normal family. Who would want them dead?
Mia doesn’t talk. She can’t. She is locked in her own world where no one, not even her mother can reach her.
Desperate for answers, and convinced the truth might help her to reach her daughter, Danni tries to piece together the events leading up to that murderous night and uncover the arsonist. But with so many lies to untangle, what is the truth?
Prepare to have your breath taken away by an unforgettable twist that will leave you reeling…
The Silent Daughter by Kristy Ferguson is a chilling read. This story is definitely a psychological thriller. Death of children, abuse, and how people hide their pain.
The characters feel real. This does make this story emotional because it is hard to follow these characters through their pain.
This story is excellent. The writing is wonderful. The plot is difficult, but also truly well-plotted. Highly recommended.
