This book deserve 10 stars!
I have been a fan of Melanie's from day one and will read anything this woman produces. Each book I think is better than the last and this is no exception. From the very first line it captivates you and draws you in. It starts off with a heart-breaking tragedy Ryder suffers and the story moves on from there. Alexis is starting college and she is instantly drawn to the boy who does not speak to anyone. She can feel a sadness in him and her nature makes her want to help him and find out why he is so sad. I truly have no idea how she wrote this beautiful book. The woman deserves the best book award for 2015. The entire book Ryder does not speak. I have no idea how she made such a beautiful and touching story when the character does not speak. It's touching, haunting, overwhelming with emotion and it grabs a hold of you and does not let you go. The books commands your undivided attention from the very start. I could not put it down once I started. These characters are drawn to each other and Alexis was everything Ryder needed to finding his words again. And forgiving himself and moving on from what happened to Chloe. I choked up many times throughout this story. The feelings overpower you at times. The lengths Ryder goes through to protect her and make her happy. When he shows up at the dance, perfection. Everyone is going to fall in love with this story as I did. You will have to read it to see the beauty unravel. A truly remarkable love story of hope, redemption and love.
Sweet Sound of Silence was probably the most beautiful books I have ever possibly read. Well done my friend.
