Dominique BrowningSara Maitland has scaled the heights (or is it depths?) of what might be the only frontier humankind will never conquer and cannot, in spite of itself, destroy—silence. Infinite, fathomless, terrifying, uplifting, unknowable, gorgeous silence. It's difficult to convey the thrill of A Book of Silence, an adventure story that doesn't involve roaring crowds or screaming headlines, doesn't depict a heroine climbing high mountains or sailing vast oceans, doesn't chronicle racing pulses or sweaty palms, and yet is every bit as awe-inspiring, death-defying and mind-blowing as any trip up Everest. Rarely have I been so amazed at the splendor of a new landscape unfolding before my eyes, and felt so tense wondering what was going to happen as this intrepid writer pushed her way across the pages.
