Lillian Porter has lived a sheltered life while being raised by her grandparents. Deep down she longs to pursue the dream her parents had of traveling to California. Despite her grandfather's forbidding, she accepts a position as nanny and heads to Angels Camp.
Woodward Colton's seven-year-old son hasn't spoken since his mother's death a year prior. Woody is praying his new nanny will make a difference in the boy's life. What he hadn't counted on was the sweeping changes she brings to his life as well.
I have really enjoyed reading Beyond the Silence by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse. They brought together two unlikely characters to provide a fun, enjoyable book. I found myself rooting for both Lillian and Woody, and I was eager to see the mystery solved. I give it a 4.5 out of 5 for happily-ever-afters.
