Blog Review ~ Sound of Silence by Elizabeth Miller

Sound of Silence 
Elizabeth Miller

War isn't a testament to a man's strength-finding peace with it is.

Navy SEAL Caden Lawless is coming home. Holding his best friend as he bled out in the Afghanistan desert, Caden became bound by Justin's desperate plea to care for his fiancée and to love the son he'd never know. Battling a barrage of memories and with a head full of noise, Caden travels cross country in his beat up Chevy to make good on his promise.

One knock on Piper Stevens' door and he knows she isn't broken. Pregnant and mourning the only man she's ever loved, Piper wields her anger as a sword, slashing into Caden's grief and his heart.

As Caden works to silence his demons, he finds a new mission, one far away from the heat and depravity that clawed its way into his soul. He demands his way into Piper's life, intent on helping her pick up the pieces.

But even as the tentative fingers of a burgeoning friendship spread into something far deeper than either believed possible, duty calls for Caden to return to the battlefield. Fate brought them together--will war tear them apart? Or will Caden reclaim the sound of silence and remain with the woman who taught him love didn't die in the desert?

A dog, a baby, a wounded SEAL and a woman caught in a snare between heartache and living. Sound of Silence is the evolution of regret and grief, friendship and love, PTSD and a second chance for happiness. Standalone, adult contemporary romance.

When I read the synopsis for Sound of Silence, it drew me in.

Navy Seal Caden Lawless is struggling with life, Piper too is struggling with life and loss.

I felt everyone of Piper’s feelings, being a military spouse myself, you struggle with daily life when the military member is deployed. You were worry every day about the “what if’s”. Caden feels guilt for so many things, on top of trying to discover the truth about his father. Two lost souls find each other and try to find their way back to living without the one they love.

Sound of Silence had a mix of romance and suspense all in one. Overall, it was a good read; I plan on checking into other titles by the author.
