ALL THE SILENT VOICES

Pinterest Board for All the Silent Voices

Set against the backdrop of pharmaceutical corruption in Washington, D.C., and written in the style of THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO, this story will appeal to fans of Sandra Block (WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT), Krysten Ritter (THE BONFIRE), and Shari Lapena (THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR).

For twenty-one years, Emma Shephard has tried to forget that she was forced to leave Westview University after she was sexually assaulted by a football player. The administrators blamed Emma for the assault, while the rapist was not prosecuted. She’s built a new life as a loving wife and parent with a successful career. However, her world is rocked when her rapist, Richard Stolar, buys the pharmaceutical company she works for and forces her into repeated confrontations while showing no remorse.

Now, Emma must make an impossible choice between the safe life she’s created and pursuing justice. With her marriage at risk and her child in danger, Emma is soon forced to choose between justice and revenge. After finally turning to her husband and friends for help, she discovers that Richard is only one of her powerful enemies. Soon Emma finds herself at the center of uglier secrets and greater scandals than expected.

Julia Ramos’ trip to Italy to find her birth mother would be perfect—if not for stealing a dog, being run over by a handsome British architect, and getting kicked out of her rental apartment.

Daniel Stafford’s wouldn’t mind going to visit his family in Tuscany—if not for his girlfriend ditching him for their Italian driver, botching up a work presentation in Rome, and an assertive American teacher with a dog jumping in front of his car.

When Julia and Daniel’s disastrous lives collide in Rome, they have no choice but attempt to help each other. As they navigate their trip through Italy, they find that, despite their differences, they can’t help but fall in love. However, even the best intentions often suffer from family interference and misunderstandings.
