It’s been a while since I have been moved by a book as much as this one, I spent a good portion of my Saturday night crying, and the emotions that I felt whilst reading The Silent Waters were very intense and real.
Such a beautiful story of two childhood friends who love each other deeply, but where the timing is never quite right, and the circumstances of their lives keep them from achieving true happiness.
“I need you to know that even if you decide to never speak again, you’ll always have someone around to hear you, Maggie. All right? I’ll always be there to listen to your silence.”
Maggie Riley and Brooks Griffin’s story touched me so deeply, their journey is not an easy one, but the pain and the tears are outweighed by their wonderful friendship and their amazing moments together, and there were so many beautiful moments.
Maggie is an intelligent and loving woman, who is crippled by fear. She is surrounded by love, her father, her step-siblings, her step-mother, Brooks, they all love her, but nobody can help her to overcome her greatest worries, they can only do their best and be there for her and give her strength by being a strong family unit.
Brooks is Maggie’s brothers’ bandmate, and vows to always be there for her, sharing his love of music with her, whilst she shares with him her of books.
Brittainy Cherry has the ability to really pull me into a story, I felt like I was living it, and even though it hurt, the painful parts were what made the good parts sweeter. I could not put this book down, and I urge anyone who loves to read an epic love story that puts you through the paces, to pick up this truly inspiring book.
“You have a voice, Maggie May. You always have. Now it’s just time for the rest of the world to hear it. “
Straight onto the Top 2016 shelf…I simply loved it <3
