    The climax of this story was so uneventful. Alluding to the cause of silence throughout the book only to end the story abruptly was frustrating. The gory details were unnecessary to include but more time could have been spent explaining how it came to be. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Silence is golden. This book gives you a feel of what it might be like for a child of abuse. No matter what type of abuse, physical, sexual, mental or verbal, it is especially hard on children who look to loved ones for guidance and protection. This book makes you feel what it might be like if you were young and abused. This is my second read of this series and, in my opinion, Broken and Broken Silence are excellent. For anyone who has suffered abuse, I hope you can find the strength to speak out and seek help. If you’ve been through abuse this might not be the book for you.

    Silence was very interesting and it made you want to keep reading. I truly enjoyed the storyline and how much the author allows you to know her charterers. Even though the main character Oakley didn’t speak, you were able to really get in her head. The suspense kept me interested, and what I loved most about the book was how it switches perspective between Oakley and Cole.
