Of Silence | completed
Set in Lille, France, in the years leading up to the second world war, Of Silence tells the story of a boy, Charles, and six other people - a baker, a teacher, a tailor, a hostage, an actress, and a soldier. The plot follows Charles from the day he's found on the streets of Lille as a young boy, as he grows and learns to love, and finally, as he's caught in a series of tragic events that shatter into dire consequences.
Filled with prose, growth, and a little bit of romance, Of Silence is a compelling read that draws the reader in and doesn't let them go until it's all over.
