Introducing Audible's Thriller of the Year: Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil, performed by Joanne Froggatt. In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life...until Aiden returns.

Thirty years have passed since Greta Marchmont left the Marchmont Hall. Now she finally returns, with amnesia and no memory of her past. But a walk through the wintry landscape leads to a disturbing discovery: she comes across a grave in the forest, and the weathered inscription on the cross tells her that her own son is buried here. Greta begins to search for the woman she once was, and to do so she must summon all of her courage....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Thoroughly enjoyed this. Stephen Fry does an amazing job as narrator. .

What does Stephen Fry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Was reluctant to listen to this because Stephen Fry was narrating - in my head he is the Jeeves character - but was pleasantly surprised at how accomplished he was.

I had previously only read the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella so thought I'd try one of her other books. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end and would recommend it.
