Set in the era of the English Civil War, Silence is a subdued, Puritan housewife left to manage her husband's house and family as he fights in the war. When her home is overrun by Cavalier troops, Silence fights to keep order and prevent the house from being destroyed. To this end, she finds an unlikely ally in Captain Nick Hellier, and eventually comes to develop feelings for him. A good novel, although it was slow at the beginning and middle, by the end the author had develop a true conflict for the characters to struggle to resolve. ( )

I loved this book. One of my absolute favourites. Set in the English Civil war. Understand its probably not for everyone as its rather romantic, but I really enjoyed the story and the way it was written. ( )

All Pamela Belle's books set during the English Civil War evoke the period brilliantly, but this is my favourite. It is the story of a Puritan wife whose home is occupied by enemy forces whilst her husband is away fighting. The characters are so real, you feel they're standing in front of you. Pure escapism. ( )

First words
It was unseasonably mild for late October, and the sun stole warm and welcome through her thick woolen bodice and skirts as she sat in the cozy niche in the lowest wall of the terraced, south-facing gardens.
