Moments.Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday’s hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow’s promises.
I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.
I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.
This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.
(Book Three in the Elements Series. Complete Standalone.)
“True love meant you could laugh at mistakes. True love meant you could whisper secrets. True love meant you never had to dance alone.”
“Love didn’t come with guidelines. It flowed into a person with only hope as its current.”
“Moments. Humans always remember the moments. We recall steps that lead us to where we were meant to be. The words that inspired or crushed us. The incidents that scarred us and swallowed us whole. I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me, moments that scared and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones–most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones–all included her.”
Sometimes there is a story that will take you by surprise and touch your soul in ways that you were not prepared for. The Silent Waters is that book for me. This book has anchored itself into my heart and left me utterly speechless. I am a complete and total loss for words. I would love nothing more than to write a beautiful and profound review for this book. But, if this story has taught me anything, it has taught me that silence can be more powerful than actual words. That it is ok if I can’t find the right words to express the feels running through my mind at this moment. However, I am going to try my best. I am going to try super hard to convey my jumbled thoughts and feelings…
The Silent Waters is beautifully written and will take you on the most unexpected journey. It will grab hold of your heart and keep you breathless, waiting to see how it will all play out. This is another one of those stories that begs you to experience it blind and not spoiled. I promise, promise, promise that the journey will be worth it. Brittiany C. Cherry has delivered a beautiful and unforgettable story about love and the power of your voice.
The Silent Waters is an amazing addition to The Elements Series. This story is beautiful and heartbreaking. The romance, angst and drama is perfectly balanced. This story is very personal and powerful. Even though I’ve never had to suffer in silence, this story has spoken to my heart and left me with tears in my eyes. This story is just incredible and I loved every moment of it.
