Wow. That's all I can say. Wow. Lately I've not wasted my time or money on the big name authors because I don't feel they deliver a good read for the huge amount of money I spend. So, I've been searching out new talent. Was I EVER happy to find The Silence of the Stones! To say this is a mystery that keeps you guessing is an understatement. A page-turner, I was gripped by the strength and reality of the main character and her supporting staff! Well crafted, this book, using an artist’s eye, took me to a place I’d never been before. It allowed me to see the countryside and enjoy the language. If you love a great mystery/love story, this is a must read. You’ll keep guessing until the end and you will love that this author leaves you satisfied yet wanting more!

Author Rebecca Bryn has carefully woven a complex tale of love and revenge. Alana’s character is at once brave, courageous, insecure and vulnerable. Her story is heart wrenching as she stumbles through a web of lies so complex the truth seems unattainable. And the lies she has constructed? They protect her, but in doing so prevent her from moving forward with her life.

I was captured and completely captivated by the symbolism. The stones represent many things: impermeable secrets; stoic perseverance; rune tiles reflecting ancient dogmas extant in current beliefs; creative expression through art; grave markers of loved ones; and silent watchers through the ages.

The plot’s twists were unpredictable. The developing and changing relationships of the characters were true to life, dragging the reader into their lives.

Truly a work worthy of attention. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I love finding new Indie Authors who can weave a tale that keeps you turning the pages. That is exactly what Rebecca Bryn has done with this novel, Silence of the Stones.
The main character, Alana, is plagued by the feeling of not being wanted and the target of many arguments between her parents. But, she is an extremely talented artist and when she unexpectedly inherits a cottage in a remote area, she sees it as the opportunity she needs to make a name for herself. But, the symbols she finds on the stones standing at Coed-y-cwm lead not only to a sculpting project, but are clues to unraveling the mysteries, murders, lies and deceit.
However, nothing could have prepared her for the layers of lies that unfold and the secrets that everyone seems to carry in the small community. Not only does she discover the family she thought to be family wasn't, she discovered a whole other family she didn't know existed. Rebecca takes us into the mind of a character with multiple personalities and does a brilliant job portraying her. I don't want to give the plot away, so let me just say that just when I thought I had things figured out, there would be another unpredictable twist right up to the end of the story. I love the way the characters jumped off the pages. There was never a place in the book that lagged. I never lost interest all the way to the last page.

I was up pretty late last night finishing this. It was one of those books. It kept me guessing right up until the end.

There's something going on in this village in Wales. People are turning up dead and everyone is scared. It's been thirty years since two children were kidnapped and one of their mothers went to jail. Thirty years isn't long enough to forget, apparently.

Alana is a young artist who struggles to make ends meet and struggles even more to move past events that happened two years ago. When an aunt she had never even heard of wills her a cottage in a quant little village, it seems like the perfect opportunity. She doesn't know the snake pit she is walking in to. The mysteries of the last thirty years start to come unraveled. Along with Greg, who is just a much an unknown part of it as she is, and Maddy, a young reporter, they start to figure out the truth.

This was a gripping mystery and I didn't expect that ending at all. I will say that it dragged quite a bit in places, especially in the first half. Once I hit the halfway point, though, I couldn't stop reading. The secrets and the lies and the uncovered truths were not what I thought they'd be and that's a good thing. I never knew exactly what was going on, because every time I thought I did, it would end up being another lie. Just great storytelling. Rebecca Bryn has this way of describing things that it makes you feel like you are there in Wales, right alongside Alana. Very well done.

The crime is hidden deep in the past..many secrets..many deceits.. more heart breaking than an old lover...a thriller that is painted more than written from page to page...look into the minds of people on the brink, overshadowed by their tragedies who still trudge forward with a resilience that is both heart warming and heart breaking. Good read. The descriptions make me want to visit Wales. The story is devine, imaginative.well conveived...a true mystery without a lot of glitz. The ending is supurb - fooled me.

Already planning my return trip to Wales. Just as soon as Ms. Bryn graces us with another gorgeous work of art.
I learned subsequent to reading this marvelous book that the author is also a visual artist. Clearly she has the range and sensitivity to draw her characters with uncanny particularity.
A great achievement.
Highly recommended.
