Beyond the Silence
The Shadows Over This Olive Grove Hide More Than Just the Truth
Lillian Porter has always wanted to fulfill her mother's dream of going west, so when she hears about a nanny position in Angels Camp, California, she defies her grandfather and takes a chance on a new future. But she quickly wonders if she made the right choice. Murky rumors swirl around Woodward Colton, her new employer, but the gossip doesn't match the man Lillian comes to know.
Still, something dark did happen in the family's past. Lillian's seven-year-old charge hasn't spoken in over a year. Gently, Lillian tries to coax him out of his shell, hoping he'll one day feel safe enough to share what scared him. But the Colton olive farm is no longer a safe place. Lillian encounters suspicious characters on their land and mysterious damage done to the farm. When the housekeeper is brutally attacked, the town once again suspects the worst. Will discovering the truth help Lillian clear the name of the man she has come to love--or will it endanger her even more?
"Not only is the reader privy to the thoughts and emotions of the heroine, the hero and his son, but the villain's thoughts are also heard. A nice page-turner with a quite satisfying finale."

"It is only through the grace of God and His lessons on forgiveness that Woody, Lillian, and Jimmy can rise above their situation and move on. Beyond the Silence is a story rife with intrigue, faith, and family."
