I just love Margaret Daley's writing style. Not only does she write stories that are poignant, captivating, and romantic, but she tackles tough subjects with a skill that is not easily matched. This story is no exception. Shattered Silence is a gripping story about bullying in it's many forms, domestic abuse, prejudices, and overcoming those things in our lives with the Lord's help.
I loved Liliana's character from the first page. She is a strong-willed, independent woman. She is fiercely protective of her family and her heart. Watching her finally surrender her past and embrace her future was one of the best parts of the story. Cody was another great heroine. Who doesn't love a God-fearing Texas Ranger that's built, loyal, and handsome?
The part of this book I enjoyed the most was the message. Each character has to overcome some aspect of bullying in their lives, whether past or present. Each character has to learn to trust that God will get them through the present bullying and help them escape the memories of their past bullying. By trusting that God will help them, they can learn to trust the good people in their lives and embrace all that's meant for them.
Overall, Margaret Daley has created another touching romance, full of suspense, with a fantastic message. I highly recommend it!
Just finished reading Shattered Silence, Margaret Daley's book. This was an exciting story, what all the Texas Rangers had to go through to find the murders, smugglers, etc. The ending surprised me totally. Would never have guessed who the guilty ones were; took a lot of time to locate them. Margaret Daley keeps you on the edge all throughout the story. So many adventures are in this story. Loved it, and I know you all will too. She is truly a gifted writer. I love reading all of her books that I have (22), but I believe she has written 98, so have a ways to go.
I think this series has been Margaret Daley's best work. Shattered Silence is a good as book 1. A lot of subjects were covered. Spousal abuse, bullying, racism and of course murder. There was even time for some romance. I enjoyed the subjects that were addressed and this was a nice enjoyable read.
