Shadow of Silence
The Brennans are an anchor family in the rural town of Providence, Georgia, and Annie Brennan Cameron is the pearl in the family crown. Married to a handsome FBI agent, who is heir to a real estate fortune, the pieces of Annie’s life fit seamlessly together until mid-2001 when her dream-come-true becomes her nightmare-in-disguise. As Annie is forced to choose between equally unacceptable alternatives, she becomes someone she hardly recognizes. Required to live with an unbearable secret, she deceives those she loves most in an effort to protect them. A novel filled with a diverse cast of likeable and not so likeable characters, Shadow of Silence causes the reader to ask, “What would I have done in Annie’s place?” How far will Annie stray from her moral center to protect those she loves? What choices will she make that place her at risk of losing all that she holds dear? A prime candidate for book club debate, Shadow of Silence brings human suffering, suspense, irony, a sprinkling of humor, a touch of romance, and the element of surprise to the page as Annie struggles to salvage her self-respect and preserve her family.
