About the Book
The shadows over this olive grove hide more than just the truth.
Lillian Porter has always wanted to fulfill her mother’s dream of going west, so when she hears about a nanny position in Angels Camp, California, she defies her grandfather and takes a chance on a new future. But she quickly wonders if she made the right choice. Murky rumors swirl around Woodward Colton, her new employer, but the gossip doesn’t match the man Lillian comes to know.
Still, something dark did happen in the family’s past. Lillian’s seven-year-old charge hasn’t spoken in over a year. Gently, Lillian tries to coax him out of his shell, hoping he’ll one day feel safe enough to share what scared him. But the Colton olive farm is no longer a safe place. Lillian encounters suspicious characters on their land and mysterious damage done to the farm. When the housekeeper is brutally attacked, the town once again suspects the worst. Will discovering the truth help Lillian clear the name of the man she has come to love–or will it endanger her even more?

Authors Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse have created a masterpiece in their January 2016 release, Beyond the Silence. This story is written from the point of view of several different characters, greatly enhancing the story, as well as wonderfully moving the story along. This story has everything a reader could want, misunderstanding, tragedy, adventure, growth, love, and a little bit of romance. Historical fiction readers will be pulled into this intriguing story from page one, as it takes place in the notable town of Angels Camp, California. Not only does this story have interesting and engaging characters, but a delightful story as well. I would recommend this story to readers that enjoy Christian, historical fiction novels.
