5 Flourishing Coulee Stars for IN THE QUIET from all the Traveling Sisters!
IN THE QUIET by ELIZA HENRY-JONES is an emotional, captivating, moving, and such a beautifully written novel that captured our attention and our hearts right from the very start. We all absolutely fell in love right away with how this story was delivered and how well this story was written. For some of us, me included it quickly went into our 2018 favourite reads shelf!
We all fell in love with this family and each of the characters who are all dealing with the death of our narrator Cate. There were so many emotions explored here within the pages of this book and we felt so many of them and that led to such an enduring and wonderful discussion for all of us. We won’t soon forget our discussion or this novel!
We loved all the different relationships explored here with the different characters and the ones that really stood out for us were between the sisters, Cate and Bea and Laura and Sylvia.
ELIZA HENRY-JONES delivers an extremely impressive, well-written, and touching story here with enduring and real characters that were easily relatable and to love. Even the horses were a special edition to this story and found that the connection that the family had with the horses and to them to be extremely fitting to the whole story in general.
ELIZA HENRY-JONES does such a great job creating the different types of characters within this family giving each of them their own conflict and voice that allowed us to feel multiple emotions for each of them. We loved how intuitive Cate was and how well her thoughts on each of the family members reverberated out of the pages and into us the readers. Raff and Cam tugged at our heartstrings and we loved their gentle relationship.
What an emotional and powerful end for such a beautifully written book that flowed so perfectly that we all won’t soon forget! Would highly recommend!!
This was an absolutely wonderful book to have shared and discussed with our Traveling Sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed the reading experience! Thank you ladies!!
