Book Spotlight Giveaway! The Quiet Child by John Burley

I have sooooo many books! The Book Spotlight Giveaway feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the many books I have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy these treasures.


I read The Quiet Child about a year ago and posted these thoughts about the story ——

"Not only is The Quiet Child so well written that the words just flowed off the pages, the story was intriguing and suspenseful enough to make me not what to put it down. I loved the way the author wrote the descriptions so as to make me feel like I was totally immersed in the scenes he was describing. It was all so detailed and well written without being overdone.

And the twists and turns of the storyline. Wow! So much there that I was not expecting—so many thing that are not what they seem to be. This is an author that I will definitely be reading again." posted on The Book Bag on August 9, 2017

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


The Quiet Child

The Quiet Child by John Burley
Paperback, 304 pages
Published August 8th 2017 by William Morrow Paperbacks

From the award-winning author of The Absence of Mercy, comes a gripping and darkly psychological novel about family, suspicion, and the price we are willing to pay to protect those we love the most.

It’s the summer of 1954, and the residents of Cottonwood, California, are dying. At the center of it all is six-year-old Danny McCray, a strange and silent child the townspeople regard with fear and superstition, and who appears to bring illness and ruin to those around him. Even his own mother is plagued by a disease that is slowly consuming her.

Sheriff Jim Kent, increasingly aware of the whispers and rumors surrounding the boy, has watched the people of his town suffer—and he worries someone might take drastic action to protect their loved ones. Then a stranger arrives, and Danny and his ten-year-old brother, Sean, go missing. In the search that follows, everyone is a suspect, and the consequences of finding the two brothers may be worse than not finding them at all.
