good versus evil,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Broken Silence (A Karen Rose Novella) (Romantic suspense) (Kindle Edition)
This is the first book by Karen Rose that I have read and it won't be the last. It was perfect for me that this short novella was delivered to my kindle the day after I had finished reading Stephen King's fantastic new book 'Doctor Sleep'. I needed something to clear my mind but didn't want anything too weighty. Broken Silence didn't disappoint. It is about a traumatised young child found in the snow beside the burnt out wreck of a car with the bodies of a man and woman inside, presumed to be her parents. The problem is the child has been so affected by what she has seen that she cannot speak. Daphne Montgomery is the Assistant State's Attorney who is herself on leave from a traumatic event concerning her own family and is brought in to try to communicate with the child, using experience from her own childhood. It is important that they are able to make this breakthrough because the little girl is the only witness and holds the answers which will help the police start their investigation. I cannot say too much more without giving away spoilers which I don't want to do. Suffice to say this is well worth reading. It contains gentle loving characters pitted against those capable of performing acts of unbelievable brutality, all in the name of greed. A clear example of good against evil.
