Breaking the Silence by Diane Chamberlain
I read the book Breaking the Silence by Diane Chamberlain. This book was about a woman named Laura Brandon and her daughter Emma, who find out about the past while trying to break Emma's silence. Emma started not talking right after her "father" killed himself in front of her. Laura thinks he killed himself because of her father's dying wish, for her to go visit and take care of a woman named Sarah Tolley. Laura ends up finding a lot about herself during this book including Emma's real father and why her dad made sure she looked after Sarah. I'd recommend this book for kids in high-school and up because its about 400 pages, and it has some strong dialogue. This is a good book if you like mysteries with some romance. You find yourself not wanting to put the book down; it's a great book.
