The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton
Hardcover: 304 pages
Publisher: Crown (February 16, 2016)
On 24th November Yasmin and her deaf daughter Ruby arrived in Alaska
Within hours they were driving alone across a frozen wilderness
Where nothing grows
Where no one lives
Where tears freeze
And night will last for another 54 days
They are looking for Ruby’s father
Travelling deeper into a silent land
They still cannot find him
And someone is watching them in the dark
There was so much more to this book than I thought there would be. I loved reading about Alaska, one of the places on my “to visit” list. The writing was good, at times comforting, at times informative, and of course, there is the anxiousness from their journey and wondering if they will find Ruby’s dad.
The story is good, but a few things happened that were just weird. I don’t want to give anything away, but one incident with Ruby and her laptop seemed strange.
The ending was not what I expected, but it was a good ending, and I’d read more from this author.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review
