A gripping dark family mystery from a thrilling new voice.

Â'Haunting, gripping - I couldn't put it down.Â'
Lindsay Ashford

Then – 1933: Gwen is a dutiful wife. But as the years pass, on their desperately poor smallholding, her duty to her husband John will have a terrible price for herself and her children. Something that cannot be spoken of.

Now – When Sarah finds her grandparentsÂ' ruined farmhouse, she becomes obsessed with restoring it and turning it back into a home. Adrift after a personal tragedy, she needs something to believe in. She starts digging into her family history and is appalled to learn her grandfather was shot. Can she find justice for John? Is justice what she first thinks?

Two women. One dark secret.

Praise for A Time for Silence

"A Time for Silence is not only a compelling psychological thriller but also provides a haunting portrait of a past generation whose central conflicts and issues have remained valid to the present day."

"I truly couldn't put this book down. A skilfully crafted novel in dual time.... There is a lot of wisdom about human nature in this gripping novel, with both dark and light portrayed realistically... A highly recommended read. I can't wait for Ms Moores next offering."
Alex Martin author of The Twisted Vine

"...after a few short chapters I was hooked... Piece by piece, she builds these women's lives until they sneak into our affections. The most chilling part of Thorne Moore's skill is the way that she represents evil."
Helen Tozer, sideline jelly

"A Time for Silence is a true page turner, and as the tale grows in momentum, it graduates from chilling to horrific, as it tells of one women's fixation with a past that should have remained closed."
Norma Penfold, www.gwales.com

"a good mystery, great writing and a healthy dollop of social history"
Karen Bamford, The Doll's House Magazine
