Editorial Reviews

Review

Nancy Norbeck's first novel, THE SILVER CHILD, is a wonderful novel. I had a hard time putting it down.  It has parts of dystopia, fantasy, mystery, and adventure. The two main characters, a seventeen-year-old girl and a doctor in his 60s, are interesting and feel as if they could really happen.

Maia is a girl who can spin silver when she sings. Her parents have tried to keep this a secret from the ruling government, the Brotherhood, who control everything. She runs to Dr. Martus, the doctor who delivered her. Together they try to find out what her ability means and why the Brotherhood wants to find her.

The writing is very good, a page turner. The characters, not just the main ones, are interesting and well written. Lovers of The Hunger Games, The Giver, and the Divergent series will be drawn to this story and these characters. I could see a movie being made of this novel.

I am looking forward to the next installment in Maia's and Dr. Martus' story.

Nancy Norbeck wrote her first story, inspired by her brother’s case of chicken pox, when she was in fourth grade. She flirted with writing off and on over the years, but began to take it seriously in high school, and then in college. After teaching writing to English as a Second Language students for several years, and working on her own writing projects, she enrolled in Goddard College’s MFA in creative writing program, which she completed in 2009. The Silver Child is her first novel. She currently works as a writing and creative process coach.

Nancy is a longtime fan of Doctor Who and can often be found spoiling her two nephews rotten. She lives in New Jersey and loves to travel, especially when she can go back in time via a good book.
