The quality of silence

I've been doing a lot of reading lately and thanks to Net Galley I was able to get an arc of The quality of silence by Rosamund Lupton in exchange for an honest review. 

To start with I struggled to get into this one, I found the constant changing of perspective a little confusing, although to be fair to the author I have been having trouble sleeping of late and so my brain isn't exactly functioning well. Still I persevered and I'm so glad I did because it turned out to be a very gripping read that seemed incredibly well researched. 

The story follows a mother and her deaf daughter on a journey along the Alaskan ice roads, in a mad bid to find her husband, who is missing and believed dead by the authorities. 

Unwilling or unable to accept this mother and daughter set out in hopes of finding him, travelling on incredibly dangerous roads in horrifying weather. 

This was a really heart warming tale, full of excitement and intrigue that succeeded in gripping my attention quite nicely, once I'd got over my initial confusion. 

And because of this it is a book that I would definitely recommend to others, though if your suffering sleep deprivation too, you might want to wait before picking this one up.

As this book isn't due for publication until  the 31st of December, I don't want to give to much away, but if your looking for something a little bit different, that will also increase your knowledge of subjects such as Alaskan wildlife and the universe, then grab a copy ready for the new year, as this would make a great first read for 2016.

Love and hugs all
