Silent Child - Sarah A. Denzil

Reading Challenge Category: Kindle Unlimited

Official Blurb:

In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned.
His body was never recovered.
Ten years later, Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life. She's married, pregnant, and in control again...
... until Aiden returns.
Too traumatized to speak, he raises endless questions and answers none. Only his body tells the story of his decade-long disappearance. The historic broken bones and injuries cast a mere glimpse into the horrors Aiden has experienced. Aiden never drowned. Aiden was taken.
As Emma attempts to reconnect with her now teenage son, she must unmask the monster who took him away from her. But who, in their tiny village, could be capable of such a crime?
It's Aiden who has the answers, but he cannot tell the unspeakable.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this and would have read it quicker if we hadn’t have had visitors, so I had to sneak reads when I could! In the end, I had to be antisocial for an hour to get it finished as I needed to know the outcome!
Aiden not talking was frustrating, but the book isn’t called ‘The Silent Child’ for nothing. Also, I wished there had been more communication between Emma and everyone a little more instead of her just cracking up; she may have been able to prevent a few things without there being some of the more obvious drama.
However, it was an intense read, and you didn’t know who to trust, just like Emma didn’t. You literally suspected everyone. I guessed the actual kidnapper, but I didn’t guess the details leading up to the kidnap, so they were a pleasant surprise!
