Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Cage is a child when she discovers that there are things in this world that only she can see. But she doesn't want to see them, and she definitely doesn't want them to see her.

What is a curse to Elizabeth is a gift to others - a very valuable gift they want to control. When her husband dies, Elizabeth's world descends into a nightmare. But as she tries to piece her life back together, she discovers that not everything is as it seems.

Alone in a strange and frightening world, she's a vulnerable target to forces beyond her control. And she knows that she can't trust anyone....

White Silence is a twisty supernatural thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat.

    "Awful"

    I don't even know how this book had such high ratings. I'm asking for a credit refund. It sounded amazing. It was the antithesis of amazing. Just don't.

    "LOVED THIS STORY!!!"

    only criticism I have is that the volume was very low no matter how high I turned my volume up.

    "So much imagination from this author"

    I don't know how Jodi Taylor comes up with these wonderful and different stories. This is the same Taylor that creates loveable characters and witty banter. But this book has deliciously chilling paranormal undertones. It's different and the same. I recommend unless you're going to be spending lots of time alone in the dark when you listen and you get easily spooked. I don't read or listen to scary books and I did fine but I can see how in the wrong circumstances there were a few places when I might have gotten uncomfortably scared.

    "Don't bother!"

    Story had some merit but no direction. I would not waste my credit nor time with this book. Sorry Jodi but your editor failed you miserably.

    "Can I just say "WOW!""

    This book takes hold of you from the first chapter and does not let go. I do not want to give anything away by going into the storyline details of why I consider it the "WOW" Book of the Year; however I do want to say do yourself a favor and listen to this book, it is well worth the time and the credit. This is a five plus storyline and performance. Thank you Jodi Taylor for giving us something so different from the usual genre and making it a memorable experience days after the listening was over!

    "Enthralling story"

    I wouldn't say the story is scary, but it definitely has a few moments that are a bit chilling. I loved that the story was original and I'd never heard one like it. It had a different tone than the rest of Jodi's books, but it was still fantastic - although I didn't find myself laughing out loud like I do with her other books. I was left craving more when I had to put it down. My only frustration with it was the audio level - I don't know if it was how Kate Scarfe was speaking or the recording, but if I listened through my car's Bluetooth or listened without headphones, I would have to turn it way up or put it next to my ear just to hear what was being said.

    Can't wait for the next installment!

    "Great listen, love Jody Taylor"

    The narration was excellent! I enjoyed the story and would highly recommend it. I prefer St Mary's and Frogmorton Farm, but it is an interesting change of direction. This story didn't have as big a pay off at the end, but I look forward to seeing the characters again in the next book.

    Story
    "A new series from the creator of St. Mary's"

    The apparent start of a new series (The "Book 1" in the title was a clue there).
    Elizabeth Cage is a woman with a secret talent and no end of people who want to use her for it. The writing here is crisp and clever. The plot is engrossing. The story itself however, seems to be a little bit of everything from a love story, to a ghost story, to a spy novel, to a horror story, to female empowerment.

    Really.

    And I still recommend it because the ride is worth it.
    I also get the distinct impression that the entire novel is setting up a bigger story for Elizabeth.

    I plan on being there to see it...you should too.

    "mixed feelings"

    This contemporary adventure has left me with mixed feeling. Usually I love Jodi Taylor's books, but I am left sitting here an hour after finishing this first instalment in a new series, wondering if I want to read more. The humourous dialogue is there, the charming town of Rushton still thrives, but this novel takes a black turn. Let's face it, I was more taken by the golden horse.

    Story
    "Where was the health warning?"

    This is such an unexpected book. I know and love Jodi Taylor's work, I've read all of her books, some of them three or four times. This is the first that had me scared.

    It's not like the St Mary's Chronicles. It had my pulse racing several times. So be warned, and make sure your medication is up to date before reading it if you have a heart complaint. It was as if Jodi Taylor channelled Stephen King!

    Another favourite author, Robin Hobb, once said in a blog that a book is only worth 5 stars if it literally put every other part of your life in abeyance till it was finished. That's why I've given 5 stars for White Silence. It was read in a single sitting, only interrupted by the need to feed the dog.


    By necessity, I've been reading audio books for more than 30 years, and White Silence is only the second of several thousand books that I didn't listen to, I watched it happen. Jodi Taylor's utterly convincing and immersive style had me right there, every minute.

    There is one downside. Having read White Silence in its entirity, on the day it was released, means there's a long wait before I can reasonably expect to find out what happens next.

    Thanks so much Jodi Taylor for an incredible thrilling read.

    "Brilliant"

    A totally different concept from the 'St Mary's' series, it captured my interest and imagination from the very beginning. Well written with Jodi Taylor's special brand of humour. Much against my principles I listened until midnight to finish. I do hope we don't have to wait too long before the next in the series as the book finished on a cliff hanger!
    The narration was excellent too, I haven't come across Kate Scarle before, but she did a worthy job on this book.
    Absolutely superb, I will re-read soon as I think I whizzed through it so quickly as I was caught up in the action and wanted to find out what was going to happen!

    "Listened to the whole thing in one day"

    Elements of St Mary's, crossed with Matilda, crossed with The Woman in Black crossed with Russel & Jenny from Frogmorton. Gripping, entertaining fluff.

    Also what's with Jodi Taylor and creepy, manipulative, rich doctors?! All of her stories across all of her series include characters who use 'psychological warfare' of one form or another. She's very good at writing it.

    "Yet another brilliant story from Jodi Taylor"

    White Silence is a little different from her other works, but no less compelling. With twists and shocks in every chapter, it is a thrilling tale that literally keeps you guessing until the very last sentence. It was excellently read by Kate Scarfe.

    "Horror Among the Soft Furnishings"

    Jodi Taylor has a warm and comforting style of writing, parts of this novel actually read a bit like a Hollywood Rom-Com with two of the main characters injecting mild humour into the mid-section in particular. It's the sort of plot line that gently places soft cushions under your head as you read it. However hidden under the covers are some real nasties that occasionally burst through to bite you. It's good writing in terms of getting you behind Taylor's new heroine Elizabeth Cage who has a series of adventures as her life spirals out of control around her due to he rather unusual abilities.

    The narration by Kate Scarfe on her Audible UK debut is extremely well suited to the book and you can feel the empathy between her efforts and the author's writing. Without ever getting melodramatic she injected the right pace and suspense when it was required.

    The plot shifts and turns. There is love, heartbreak, betrayal and deception. It's a big departure from the St Mary's Chronicles but having created that much-loved series Taylor looks well on course to be creating another in a different genre. Be warned she isn't scared to take liberties with her readers but if you can take the considerable curve balls she throws at you then you'll enjoy batting through this one.

    "Great listen with a hint of supernatural"

    The story had me hooked with just the right amount of edge of the seat suspense and typical Jodi Taylor humour to keep you thoroughly engaged. Likewise the supernatural angle was woven through nicely to add to the suspense but not make it far fetched. The story didn’t quite hang together and was more like 2-3 interwoven stories wrapped into one but that didn’t detract from the overall quality or undermine the feeling suspense. Very well narrated.
