The Silent Daughter
by Kirsty Ferguson
Secrets can kill and Danni Brooks knows that better than anyone.
When her husband and two of her three children perish in a devastating house fire, Danni is sure it is arson. She’s even more sure that her and her eldest daughter Mia were meant to die in the fire too. But they are just a normal family. Who would want them dead?
Mia doesn’t talk. She can’t. She is locked in her own world where no one, not even her mother can reach her.
Desperate for answers, and convinced the truth might help her to reach her daughter, Danni tries to piece together the events leading up to that murderous night and uncover the arsonist. But with so many lies to untangle, what is the truth?
Prepare to have your breath taken away by an unforgettable twist that will leave you reeling…

Trigger warning – rape, abuse, and mental illness
Danni Brooks wakes up in the middle of the night, heads outside to see what the dog is barking at and essentially get locked out – next thing she sees her house go up in flames with her husband and three children inside! Mia her oldest manages to get out by smashing her bedroom window and from here the story revolves around the fire investigation.
The book is told from Danni’s view from her past during her childhood suffering bullying and abuse from her older sister Beth to the present dealing with the aftermath of the fire and trying to coax her daughter Mia into not falling into a pit of darkness. There are several points of view from other characters that you begin to wonder who they are and how they relate to Danni, and once all is releveled I was not expecting that twist not only that we were thrown with another twist right at the very end!!
I really enjoyed this book and it was a 5 star read for me as once I started it I could no put it down = one word of warning the bullying, rape and abuse is very central theme but very essential to tell Danni’s tale.
