A Pleasant Surprise!
I was intrigued by the title and have never read anything by Eileen Goudge, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Second Silence has an excellent balance of mystery and romance -a moving relationship drama. Very enjoyable!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A Great Book
As the father of two, I can not imagine what it would be like to have a child taken away from me. That would be the worst thing possilbe in life. This book showed every emotion a person would feel in this situation. The author has a way of reaching the bottom of your heart, and making you feel everything. Great Book!Was this review helpful?

Entertaining relationship drama
In Burns Lake, New York, after eight years of marriage, Noelle Van Doren informs her spouse Robert that their relationship is over. No one messes with Robert, a cruel developer who willingly destroys people, historical sites, and the environment. Robert refuses to go quietly. He concocts a plan to make Noelle look like a drunken loser. He abducts their little girl Emma more as a punishment of Noelle than for any love of the child. <P>If it only involved her, Noelle would have probably accepted Robert¿s scheme without a whimper. However, no one will harm Emma without Noelle interceding. With the help of her parents, who divorced long ago in spite of their love for one another, Noelle begins to fight back in an attempt to regain her reputation and more importantly, her beloved Emma. <P>Best selling author Eileen Goudge provides her fans with a suspense-laden relationship drama. The story line is exciting and entertaining even as it switches between the modern Van Doren subplot and that of the 1969 tale involving Noelle¿s parents. The charcaters are for the most part genre stereotypes. The odious Robert is made so amoral that he turns into a caricature of a villain. Still with Ms. Goudge¿s talent she makes the duel themes of second chances at love and redemption succeed in an engaging tale. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
