5.0 out of 5 stars The summary does not do this book justice., 16 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Screaming in the Silence (Kindle Edition)
Sometimes you pick up a book and think "do I really want to read this"? this is how I began with Screaming in the Silence but from page 1 was hooked, drawn into an incredible story of survival, hope and love.

The book summary does not do this book justice. It is misleading as the story is much more complex than implied in this summary. It is a physiological suspense so I will try and do this book the justice it deserves.

I absolutely loved this story - it captivated me. I started it and did not put it down until the last page.

The story begins - Raleigh Winter wakes up in the back of a car. It is speeding and suddenly something rolls on top of her. It is Julie a fellow hitchhiker. Julie is dead and Raleigh remembers that they were hit by a car, their bodies collected and dumped in the back of the truck. The three men thought both of them were dead and are not happy to find that Raleigh is very much alive. Raleigh Winter is also deaf and communicates with sign language. What follows is a unbelievable emotional journey that she did not expect to travel. She is imprisoned and stuck with three men who find themselves in an impossible situation. One wants to kill her, one wants her to survive and one wants to protect her.

Her captors, Kaden, Ray, and Marshal are not career criminals that the summary leads you to believe. Neither are they rapists seeking their next victim. She is not kidnapped, raped and then she falls in love with her rapist. The story is not that simple..

It is s a very different approach to finding love and Lydia Kelly spun this so well and did not let anyone off the hook. This is a story with many conflicts, emotional, violence and rape. Rape is rape and the reader is not allowed to forget that at any point.

A conflicting and emotional read. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.

This is one that has been on my wishlist forever. I love conflicted, emotional and dark reads, and your last line says it all.
