Thanks for stopping by! I’m delighted to be sharing my review for The Silent Friend by Diane Jeffrey today. A big thank you to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
One night changed everything.
For Laura and Sandy, one tragic event changed the course of their lives forever.
Now they are the only ones who understand each another, drawn together by the night that changed everything.
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?
The Silent Friend is a really intriguing story. It’s actually pretty hard to talk about the plot without giving anything away so I’ll try and be as vague as I can. In this book we meet two women, Laura and Sandy and see how one terrible event takes its toll on their lives. Needing help and a feeling of connection Laura and Sandy begin a friendship but there are secrets between this pair that could destroy everything.
Diane Jeffrey has written a story about two very different women who are linked by a harrowing and dark event. There were lots of themes covered throughout that gave the story a dark and at times emotional edge. It was very interesting to see both sides shown and definitely made you think about the circumstances that the characters found themselves in.
I’m not sure I would class The Silent Friend as being a full on thriller. However there were moments where I felt on edge along with twists and turns to keep me intrigued. For me this book was at its heart all about the characters and the way their lives were altered forever. The way they tried to navigate their way through the difficult situations. Along with showing the emotional side and the devastating consequences of that one night.
The Silent Friend turned out to be something quite different and not necessarily what I was first expecting. What I found was a story that made me think and had a quiet but strong hold over me throughout.
