Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

This title is from the number 1 bestselling author of "The Lost Daughter". Laura Brandon's promise to her dying father was simple: to visit an elderly woman she'd never heard him speak of before. A woman who remembers nothing - except the distant past. Visiting Sarah Tolley seemed a small enough sacrifice to make. But Laura's promise results in another death - her husband's. And after their five-year-old daughter, Emma, witnesses her father's suicide, Emma refuses to talk about it...or to talk at all. Frantic and guilt-ridden, Laura contacts the only person who may be able to help, a man she's met only once before - a man who doesn't know he's Emma's real father. Guided only by a child's silence and an old woman's fading memories, the two unravel a tale of love and despair, bravery and unspeakable evil. This is a tale that links them all. It is a tale shrouded in silence...

Diane Chamberlain is a gifted author and this is a truly stellar book! I literally could not put it down.

Set in 1998, Laura Brandon, 40 is coping with the death of her father, Carl Brandon who was a gifted astronomer. He leaves with her a deathbed request, which is to check in on a woman named Sarah Tolley. Ms Tolley is a widow in a nursing home and she has the beginning stages of Alzheimer's.

Curious, Laura tries to figure out her father's connection to Sarah Tolley. Her husband Ray, champion for the rights of homeless people and her daughter Emma, 5 round out her current family. Laura's mother died in 1966 when she was 8.

Ray is adamantly opposed to Laura visiting Sarah. She refuses to back down and goes out to meet the mysterious Sarah Tolley. They immediately form a bond and Laura learns a lot about Sarah's past. Sarah had been married to a lovely man named Joe Tolley and her late Aunt Jane had a crippling case of agoraphobia. As a nod to her aunt, Sarah becomes a psychiatric nurse and has many horrific tales to share about the hospital in which she worked in the late 1950s. She also had a daughter named Janie who was born in April of 1958 whom she is trying to locate.

When Laura returns home, she is greeted by a mute and traumatized Emma. Ray had shot himself to death and left a very unsettling note. In dealing with the aftermath of the man's suicide, Laura has to help Emma work through her trauma. Emma stopped speaking when she found out what Ray had done.

Eight months slog past and Emma still isn't speaking. Emma's therapist is very encouraging and even invites Sarah to join them for Emma's sessions, which turns out to be a good thing. Emma has developed a real terror of men and think all they do is scream and shoot themselves.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great author!! 15 août 2003
Par cmiller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
My first book by Chamberlain and I was VERY impressed. I read this book in about five hours nonstop. I couldn't put it down!!
After her father died, Laura Brandon felt obligated to carry out his last wish...meet an old woman in a nursing home that is in the early stages of alzheimers. Laura is mystified and has no idea what to expect. What she didn't expect was her husband's violent reaction to her visiting Sarah Tolley. Going against her husbands wishes, Laura visits Sarah with no more answers to the truth than before. When she comes home, she finds her daughter screaming and her husband dead from a self inflicted gun shot wound. Before the day is over, Laura realizes that her five year old daughter, Emma, has not uttered a single word.
After eight months have passed with no progress with Emma, Laura remembers her promise to her father and again visits Sarah Tolley. She has no idea if she should believe the extrordinary tales of terror that Sarah has to tell her, but she listens anyway. She also does the one thing that she swore she would never do...she seeks out Emma's birth father with hope that Emma will learn that not all men are angry and yell at little girls.
Dylan Geer is stupified when he receives the call from Laura. Not only does he deny it, but it also spikes his anger. When Laura tricks him into looking at a picture of Emma, there is no doubt in his mind that the little girl is his. Now he'll do all he can to help Emma, and help Laura who he is developing deeper feelings for than he expected.
Breaking the Silence is a heartbreaking tale in the present and the past. The way that Laura, Dylan and Emma come together is heartwarming, while the tale of Sarah and Joe Tolley is heartbreaking. There were many times that tears came to my eyes throughout this book, especially at the end. If you like a great book, don't miss this one!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 DIANE CHAMBERLAIN RULES!!! 4 septembre 2000
Par Maudeen Wachsmith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
The talented Diane Chamberlain, whose KEEPER OF THE LIGHT was one of the most innovative romances of the 90s, doesn't disappoint with BREAKING THE SILENCE. Rich and multi-layered, this is a novel of deep emotion. Delving into the world of human experimentation in a psychiatric hospital through Sarah's eyes, the book is at once disturbing and at the same time a beautiful testament to true love. The reader gets a bonus with BREAKING THE SILENCE which is essentially two books in one -- the story of Sarah's life from the 1930s to the late 1950s and then the budding relationship between Laura and Dylan. Chamberlain has woven the two together is such a spectacular way with twists and turns keeping the reader up into the wee hours of the night. This is an exceptional read and a keeper in every sense of the word

Diane Chamberlain is my new favorite author! I read this book in one weekend. I couldn't wait to finish it but I didn't want it to end either! One of the best stories I have read in a very long time. Not predictable at all and that is what added to the excitement of reading it. After reading this one I began right away reading Summer's Child and again I wasn't disappointed. I wait to order more of her books!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Solid but predictable mystery... 28 janvier 2010
Par Denise Crawford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
After reading a few of Diana Chamberlain's more recent novels, including my favorite, The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes, I could tell immediately when I started this one that I was reading one of her earlier books. That's not to say that this novel isn't good, it is -- but it is a fairly predictable story and the revelations at the end come as no surprise to any mystery reader. There are multiple things going on in the book but all eventually comes together to wrap up the various pieces. It's a story of family relationships including great love and loss and getting answers.

I enjoyed the book well enough -- it's fast paced and the narrative draws the reader in with the topic -- torture and experimentation on patients at psychiatric facilities circa 1950s. It's hard to believe that many of those "treatments" were allowed and even encouraged!

In another note, however, I must say that the sudden muteness experienced by the child, Emma, in the book was never fully explained and then mysteriously disappeared. I'm assuming it was some sort of traumatic guilt-like reaction.

All in all, this is an easy read, an early work by an author who has since become more accomplished!
