The Silent BoyBook - 2014
Paris, 1792. Terror reigns as the city writhes in the grip of revolution. The streets run with blood as thousands lose their heads to the guillotine. Edward Savill, working in London as agent for a wealthy American, receives word that his estranged wife has been killed in France. She leaves behind 10-year-old Charles, who is brought to England to Charnwood Court, a house in the country leased by a group of emigre refugees. And only when Savill arrives there does he discover that Charles is mute. What terrible secret haunts him so deeply that he is unable to utter a word?
