The gripping, moving story of a mother and daughter s quest to uncover a dark secret in the Alaskan wilderness, from the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Sister" and "Afterwards."

Thrillingly suspenseful and atmospheric, "The Quality of Silence" is the story of Yasmin, a beautiful astrophysicist, and her precocious deaf daughter, Ruby, who arrive in a remote part of Alaska to be told that Ruby s father, Matt, has been the victim of a catastrophic accident. Unable to accept his death as truth, Yasmin and Ruby set out into the hostile winter of the Alaskan tundra in search of answers. But as a storm closes in, Yasmin realizes that a very human danger may be keeping pace with them. And with no one else on the road to help, they must keep moving, alone and terrified, through an endless Alaskan night.

Written in breathtaking, pitch-perfect prose, "The Quality of Silence" explores the powerful love of a family and the very limits of human resilience.
