The Silent Hours

A novel by

"Poignant, heart-breaking, beautifully written. Five stars." Heat Magazine


An epic, sweeping tale set in wartime France, The Silent Hours follows three people whose lives are bound together by the events of one horrendous day:

Adeline, a mute cared for in a convent, haunted by memories of her past;

Sebastian, a young Jewish banker whose love for the beautiful Isabelle will change the course of his life dramatically;

Tristin, a nine-year-old boy, whose family moves from Paris to settle in a village that is seemingly untouched by war.

Utterly compelling and with a shocking true story at its core, The Silent Hours is an unforgettable portrayal of love and loss.
