’Fans of The Dilemma and Three Hours will love this.’ John Marrs, bestselling author of The One
One night changed everything.
Laura and Sandy are united in grief after a tragic event changes the course of their lives forever. They are the only ones who understand each other.
But one of them is keeping a secret that could destroy their fragile friendship. Only she knows just how closely their lives are linked.
When the secret is revealed, will their friendship survive? Or will the truth tear them apart?
This is one of those books that the less you know about the storyline, the better.
I have to admit that what I got from this book was different from what I was expecting. There are some secrets and lies but it didn’t feel like a psychological thriller. I’ve seen some others liken it more to a drama, maybe a psychological drama might be a better representation? Either way though, it is a brilliant read and one I will be recommending to everyone.
The story flicks between the two main characters Laura and Sandy. I found myself warm to both women very quickly. Their lives are turned upside down after a tragic event, of which my heart went out to them both. It is a story that I think will give the reader much food for thought. When you read it for yourself you will understand. I liked how the whole storyline played out and the epilogue was all that I had hoped it to be. I’m sorry if I’m being quite vague but less really is more with this book.
The Silent Friend is one powerful and gut punching read. The horrors of the event that bring the two main characters in to contact, wow, just wow! I kept having to remind myself to breath as I felt like I was there seeing it all for myself. My emotions were all over the place as I tried to put myself into both women’s shoes. If you only read one book this year, then this one has to be it. Breath-taking!
