‘Afternoon tea with Poole reading group was a wonderful opportunity to meet and talk to readers. One novel idea was cake & book pairings –  they recommended baked Alaska for ‘The Quality of Silence’ and ‘Angel Food Cake’ for Afterwards…’ – Rosamund Lupton

This is a compelling novel of love and how far the human heart can go if there is belief in the survival of the person it loves.

Rosamund and 1 other person liked Sarah's review of The Quality of Silence:
The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton
"I could not put this down. Who knew a book about driving a big rig in northern Alaska through a blizzard with a deaf girl would be so very exciting? This is my idea of a perfect thriller. "
The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton

“When I talk about unrequited love, most of you probably think about romantic love, but there are many other kinds of love that are not adequately returned, if they are returned at all. An angry adolescent may not love her mother back as her mother loves her; an abusive father doesn't return the innocent open love of his young child. But grief is the ultimate unrequieted love. However hard and however long we love someone who has died, they can never love us back. At least that is how it feels...”
Rosamund Lupton, Sister

“I get up and pace the room, as if I can leave my guilt behind me. But it tracks me as I walk, an ugly shadow made by myself.”
Rosamund Lupton, Sister

“Usually time alters and affects everything, but when someone you love dies time cannot change that, no amount of time will ever change that, so time stops having any meaning.”
Rosamund Lupton, Sister
