ABOUT THIS BOOK
Can love really conquer all?
When Charlie Quinn returns to Northern Ireland, having spent sixty years in Canada, the people he left behind are shocked to see him. They presumed he was dead.
But Charlie has come back for one reason, Ella, the love of his life and a notorious child murderer. She is back in the headlines and Charlie wants the truth to finally emerge.
As he looks back at his life, we learn that nothing is as it seems.
Is Ella really a killer?
Does Charlie know more than it appears?
And can two lost souls get to live happily ever after?
Life isn’t easy. But death is the most challenging thing of all…
A compelling and darkly emotional story of love, loss, heartache, and more, THE QUIET TRUTH by Sharon Thompson is a book that will linger in your mind long after you finish reading it.
Charlie Quinn has finally returned to his home and life in Northern Ireland after sixty long years away. But this isn't some childhood dream of seeing the green fields of his childhood one last time, but a determined effort to revisit a troubled past and set the truth free. Especially with Ella, the love of his life, notoriously known throughout the land as a child murderer. As Charlie begins to tell his story, a twisted web soon begins to unfurl and the harsh reality of how women were treated in Ireland in the not too distant past comes flaring to life. But can those who need peace find it?
As always with Sharon Thompson's books, there is a dark edge of truth and history blended amongst the pages which always has an effect on me as a reader - in this instance the horrific treatment of women and children in Ireland which still has such ramifications for so many people today. But it is Sharon's characters that truly draw me in each and every time, and those in THE QUIET TRUTH are no different. I was instantly intrigued by Charlie, the old man, from the very beginning, and wanted to know what had happened to him and those he loved. From there, I quickly became immersed in the twists and turns of Ella and Charlie's story, until I found myself on the last page before I was ready. And as always with Sharon's stories, I found myself caring deeply about these characters and their lives to the point where I felt that I was right there with them.
THE QUIET TRUTH by Sharon Thompson is an excellent historical novel and I look forward to more from one of my favourite authors.
