My Review for The Disharmony of Silence
I love anything with a good mystery. Especially something that goes back in time, and tells a story that coincides with today. Linda knocked it out of the ballpark with this book. I could not put it down for the life of me! It was one of those books that helped me forget I was extremely sick. If you are having to stay in because of the world’s problem, read it, and I hope it will make you forget what is happening.
