“The Weight of Silence is a suspenseful story of two girls who go missing that will have you turning pages late into the night, but, beyond this, it is a heartrending story of emotional ties told with gently lyrical language that belies brutal truths.”
— Beth Simpson, Cornerstone Books, Salem, MA

Masterfully written and beautifully told, Gudenkauf's debut is a stunning novel of family devotion, honesty, and regret that's sure to linger long after the last page is turned--a story of two families tied by the question of what had happened to their children. Original.
