Book Review: Silent in the Grave

If you are traveling in the next week or so for the holidays, I would love to recommend a great book: Silent In The Grave by Deanna Raybourn. This isn’t so much a romance as it is a historical mystery, but most of the time, at least for me, when someone says “historical mystery” they had me at hello.

And Silent in the Grave is no exception. It is an engaging story about a Victorian era widow who delves, rather reluctantly at first, into her husband’s sudden death and discovers a world she never knew. And while Lady Julia considers herself quite modern and a woman of the world, she realizes how sheltered she’s been the deeper she goes into the secrets her husband concealed from her. The cast of characters is fascinating and Raybourn’s ability to create Victorian England is breathtaking.

Always great fun to find a new series, and this one continues with Silent in the Sanctuary, which I am currently reading, and have the third book Silent On The Moor queued up for ordering. Just thought I’d share.

So, what new author, book, series, whatever you are reading now that you are sharing with all your “reader” friends? Well, we’re all friends here, so spill . . .’cause who doesn’t love finding a new can’t-put-down read?

    I’m re-reading Cynthia Wright, she wrote a series of books that take place during the American Revolution. Caroline, Silver Storm and Spring Fires were the best of those. The mail is so slow coming to this post…I have a bunch of books I’ve ordered but am still waiting to see. Thank goodness my shipment has arrived and I have these old favorites.
