Beyond the Silence by Tracie Peterson and Kimberly Woodhouse Book Review

About the Book
Beyond the Silence
  Beyond the Silence (Bethany House, January 2016)
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?

My review,
I absolutely love author Tracie Peterson. This time she has partnered with Kimberly Woodhouse to write a fantastic story about a young woman who leaves her home in search of a new life. It poses the question, how many women could actually leave everything behind and go into the unknown. Lillian decides to go out west and become a nanny. Everyone starts to think that her employer actually killed his wife. Is she the only one that believes her didn't do it? Is anyone going to help her? Is she falling in love with him? Will they have a future or will the murderer strike again? I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for a review and these are my opinions.
