Upon arriving in her new home, Lillian discovers that the townspeople believe that her employer murdered his wife. Jimmy, her small charge hasn't spoken since he witnessed his mother's death. Lillian helps each member come to terms with Rebecca's death and face the rumors, even as trouble stirs again.
I found this book to be engaging and suspenseful. I enjoyed getting to know each character, as well as the overall story. When I initially noticed that the book was co-authored I became a little leery because I'd read co-authored books in the past that didn't flow well. I didn't have this problem with Beyond the Silence. I highly anticipate reading their previously published book All Things Hidden.
