Overview

A moving, sweet and uplifting novel of love, grief and the heartache of letting go, from a wonderful new Australian author. Cate Carlton has recently died, yet she is able to linger on, watching her three young children and her husband as they come to terms with their life without her on their rural horse property. As the months pass and her children grow, they cope in different ways, drawn closer and pulled apart by their shared loss. And all Cate can do is watch on helplessly, seeing their grief, how much they miss her and how - heartbreakingly - they begin to heal. Gradually unfolding to reveal Cate's life, her marriage, and the unhappy secret she shared with one of her children, In the Quiet is compelling, simple, tender, true - heartbreaking and uplifting in equal measure. 'In the Quiet is an accomplished first book from an exciting new talent. I fell in love with it slowly, over the course of many chapters. It's a quiet book (appropriately named) and an utterly lovely one.' Readings 'Uplifting and heartwarming ... a beautiful depiction of Australian rural life' Better Reading 'This hearttugging first novel is a beautifully paced mixture of romance, family saga and mystery' Adelaide Advertiser 'A glorious book that will make you cry, guaranteed. But it's also uplifting and tender. A surprise find.' Canberra Times 'You will weep, and marvel, and pass this book on, and on, to your friends.' Nikki Gemmell Shortlisted for the Readings Prize for New Australian Fiction 2015

Not sure if its just the ebook version but very hard to follow as there aren't paragraphs where paragraphs should be, as you start getting into one thought the next sentence goes entirely into another thought. The idea of the story is a good one but because of the way the ebook is set up it is hard to follow,
