The Sound of Silence by Dakota Willink
The Sound Of Silence is part of the Leave Me Breathless World by Dakota Willink. This is the first book I have read/listened to by this author, but definitely not the last. This book grabbed my attention from the very first page. I couldn’t stop listening. The issues of abuse were brought to the forefront and I believe that Ms. Willink did a great job bringing these issues to light. It is frightening to think how many people are affected by abuse.
Gianna is such a strong woman and was brave enough to escape the heartache that her marriage became. Derek is strong, stoic and patient. He also had the strength to give Gia the time and tools what she needed to protect herself. He is a really good man. And then we have Ethan, he is a psychopath who showed his true colors in the end. This is an intense book that has warnings for triggers, but my hope is that anyone who reads this book would get something out of it, be it courage to leave an abusive situation or compassion for those in that situation.
This book has me sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen in the end. I really look forward to read more books by Dakota Willink. Brilliant is my best description of this story.
