Breaking the Silence - Diane Chamberlain

This is a book about the most important thing in life: family. Laura Brandon rushes to her fathers side in hospital, he is on his death bed. He asks her to solemnly swear to look after a woman she has never heard. Sarah Tolley. Her husband Ray - who has battled with depression all his life - is solid against the idea of Laura following her fathers death wish. When she says that she is dead set on finding her father's friend, she returns home one day to find her young daughter crying inconsolably and Ray lying still with a gun in his hand - bullet in his skull. Laura's daughter, Emma, since that day when her dad killed himself has never spoken a word. But what did Ray say to Emma? What is the link between Sarah Tolley and Laura's Dad? And do the two have a connexion?

This book is a marvellous mind messer! It had me thinkingg for days! Each chapter brings a new twist and turn in the plot. There are slight romance elements and it is very upsetting in some places... I give it a five star rating!

Does it have a happy ending?
You'll have to find out!
