THE SILENCE BETWEEN THEM SEVEN JANE & CASSONDRA WINDWALKER | DECEMBER 1, 2020
Noir/Psychological Thriller Ten years after the disappearance of her young daughter, Mary Nelson refuses to allow Ryska to become just another of the hundreds of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls across the North American continent. When Alaska's first Native Senator-elect—and Mary’s closest friend—Elisa Little Pebble Solomon is kidnapped a week after winning the election on a platform of ending violence against the native women of her home state, one woman’s tragedy may be exactly what Mary needs to bring a voice to thousands of others—even if it means an incredible betrayal. Held hostage for years in a remote wilderness cabin, Elisa must come to terms with the truth that she is now one of the many indigenous women whose name might be lost forever as she fights for her survival and to find forgiveness for the one person she trusted.
A fierce indictment of the continent's hidden genocide and violence against women, The Silence Between Them is a starkly interior examination of the lengths the human mind will go to save itself, and the strange manifestations of love.
