The gripping, moving story of a mother and daughter’s quest to uncover a dark secret in the Alaskan wilderness, from the New York Times bestselling author of Sister and Afterwards.

Thrillingly suspenseful and atmospheric, The Quality of Silence is the story of Yasmin, a beautiful astrophysicist, and her precocious deaf daughter, Ruby, who arrive in a remote part of Alaska to be told that Ruby’s father, Matt, has been the victim of a catastrophic accident. Unable to accept his death as truth, Yasmin and Ruby set out into the hostile winter of the Alaskan tundra in search of answers. But as a storm closes in, Yasmin realizes that a very human danger may be keeping pace with them. And with no one else on the road to help, they must keep moving, alone and terrified, through an endless Alaskan night.

Written in breathtaking, pitch-perfect prose, The Quality of Silence explores the powerful love of a family and the very limits of human resilience.

Review:

Lupton limns a starkly beautiful story at once as expansive as the aurora borealis and as intimate as a mother and daughter finally learning to truly hear each another. * Publishers Weekly * A thrilling Alaskan adventure...The Quality of Silence is a sophisticated thriller which brilliantly evokes the sublime and terrifying landscape of Alaska * The Sunday Telegraph * The story is told with Lupton's deft characterisation and is an engaging read * Daily Express * The Quality of Silence is a vivid and elegant thriller with great heart in its chilling narrative. -- Renee Knight, author of Disclaimer This is a beautifully written thriller and the way Lupton, author of the bestselling Sister, uses the tundra as a metaphor for both grief and faith is stunning. The voice of Ruby, who is profoundly deaf, and her compassionate exploration of a life without sound, only adds to the richness of the book. * The Press & Journal * This is Lupton at the height of her storytelling powers. * Daily Mail * This novel is a winner . . . Lupton's prose is as beautiful as it is pacey. * Singapore Straits Times * The Quality Of Silence will have you gripped from start to finish. * Cosmopolitan * A forbidding Alaskan winter is the setting for this ambitious and imaginative novel . . . Narrated in part, by Ruby, who is a delightfully realized character, (her deafness is treated with great sensitivity), the landscape, wildlife and bitter climate of Alaska are powerfully drawn. Chilling in every sense, you won't want to step away from this story. * Sunday Mirror * The pressure is on to keep creating equally brilliant stories. British author Rosamund Lupton has done just that with new novel The Quality of Silence. * Red magazine * Sister brought huge success for Rosamund Lupton. The Quality of Silence is just as engrossing, with the same claustrophobic feel. * Good Housekeeping * A gripping, twisting tale. * Glamour Magazine * Chilling in every sense. * Woman & Home * With The Quality of Silence, Rosamund Lupton brings her sophisticated brand of suspense to a setting that might have attracted Jack London: the remote frontier of northern Alaska. An elegant, chilling read from a writer who continues to stretch the bounds of suspense. -- William Landay Masterful pacing, riveting plotting. The Quality of Silence will have your heart thumping. Absolutely gripping. -- Louise Penny I loved The Quality of Silence. It was scary, suspenseful and so exquisitely, evocatively written I often found myself shivering as if I were there in Alaska with Ruby and her mother. It was everything you want in a wonderful novel. -- Liane Moriarty - author of The Husband's Secret Like a breath of icy air, this relentlessly tense thriller is also a child's-eye family drama like none other. Not since Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow have I shivered like this. -- Emma Donoghue There are many things to love about Lupton's third novel, not least its stunning evocation of Alaska . . . The Quality of Silence is an elegant and icily unique thriller, you won't read anything like it this year. -- Alison Flood * The Observer (thriller of the month) *
