Publisher's Summary

A lifetime together. Six months of silence. One last chance.

Frank hasn't spoken to his wife Maggie for six months. For weeks they have lived under the same roof, slept in the same bed and eaten at the same table – all without words. Maggie has plenty of ideas as to why her husband has gone quiet. But it will take another heart-breaking turn of events before Frank finally starts to unravel the secrets that have silenced him. 

Is this where their story ends? Or is it where it begins?

With characters that will capture your heart, The Silent Treatment celebrates the phenomenal power of love and the importance of leaving nothing unsaid.

Critic Reviews

"A remarkably assured debut which doesn’t go where you expect it to go. I very much look forward to seeing what she writes next." (Jojo Moyes)

"An original and moving debut from a talented new voice." (Santa Montefiore)

"The premise alone had me, but the book itself is just heartrendingly lovely. It’s beautiful, so moving and clever.I truly adored it." (Josie Silver, author of One Day in December

Couldn’t get into this book at all

Couldn’t get into this book at all. Continuously put it down only minutes after playing it, very slow and confusing

Good start but very drawn out ending.

Warning: only read if ready for a good cry.

The last line of this book completely broke me. I loved it but I am still recovering. These characters will stay with me forever. A beautifully written book.
