'An elegant, icily unique thriller, you won’t read anything like it this year'
'A sophisticated thriller which brilliantly evokes the sublime and terrifying landscape of Alaska’
The Sunday Telegraph
'Like a breath of icy air, this relentlessly tense thriller is also a child's-eye family drama like none other. Not since Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow have I shivered like this'
Emma Donoghue, bestselling author of Room
'I loved The Quality of Silence. It was scary, suspenseful and so exquisitely, evocatively written I often found myself shivering as if I were there in Alaska with Ruby and her mother. It was everything you want in a wonderful novel'
Liane Moriarty, bestselling author of The Husband's Secret
'Ambitious and imaginative…You won’t want to step away from this novel'
The Sunday Mirror
'With The Quality of Silence, Rosamund Lupton brings her sophisticated brand of suspense to a setting that might have attracted Jack London: the remote frontier of northern Alaska. An elegant, chilling read from a writer who continues to stretch the bounds of suspense'
'This is a beautifully written thriller and the way Lupton, author of the bestselling Sister, uses the tundra as a metaphor for both grief and faith is stunning. The voice of Ruby, who is profoundly deaf, and her compassionate exploration of a life without sound, only adds to therichness of the book.'
