Twenty-one years ago, Emma Shephard was sexually assaulted and forced to leave college. She has tried to forget the trauma, building a new life as a loving wife and parent with a successful marketing career. Then her world is rocked when her rapist buys the pharmaceutical company where she works.
Now it's an impossible choice between keeping the safe life she's created and pursuing justice. With her marriage at risk and her child in danger, Emma finds herself at the center of ugly secrets and scandals.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
Holy wow! This book was gripping. Mikalsen instantly pulled me to the heart of the story and kept me hooked until the end. She chiseled her characters and her plot perfectly. I stayed up long into the night reading this one, turning page after page. I just couldn’t put it down. I fell in love with the plot line, and the characters and am keeping this one on the bookshelf to stay!
Emma’s story is not for the faint of heart. It’s not a light read, learning of Emma’s rape and who her new boss will be, in a profession that has more corruption than you would imagine. This story is filled with twists and turns that will leave you breathless and on the edge of your seat. The realism that is incorporated into Emma’s roller coaster story is magnificent. Mikalsen weaves together situations that are true to life and had me feeling every emotion that Emma felt throughout this story.
This book is one I highly recommend to all. It’s a story that weaves a look into the consequences of being forced to stay quiet when all you want to do is shout the truth to anyone willing to listen. It’s a story that will open your eyes, all while making you want to hug Emma. If you love a superbly written, full of true-to-life characters novel, then Mikalsen’s All The Silent Voices is one you won’t want to miss.
