I've got to agree...I loved When Silence Sings!
Silence Sings is a novel which is hard to fit into a category. It is set in 1930 in West Virginia with two families stuck in a feud. At the opening, another murder has occurred. The death is that of Colman‘s cousin and it prompts him to reconsider the origins and point of the feud. He feels prompted by God to preach to his family‘s enemy, Serepta. He tries to avoid the calling but life circumstances lands him in the midst of Serepta‘s territory.
