THE COST OF SILENCE
THE COST OF SILENCE (4) by Kathleen O’Brien: Fulfilling a promise to a dead friend, Red Malone offers Allison York money to keep her from telling his friend’s grieving family about their affair and the child that resulted from it. But Allison doesn’t fit with Red’s preconceived notions of a homewrecker. And when he finds out that Alli didn’t even know about Victor’s marriage until after their affair was over, he realizes that she’s been a victim, and his attraction to her only increases. O’Brien has created characters with depth, putting them into a touching story full of emotional upheaval and growth.
