Over the Fireside With Silent Friends (Classic Reprint): Richard King
William the Silent, Prince of Orange:The moderate man of the 16th century, the story of his life as told from his own letters, from those of his friends and enemies, and from official documents Ruth Putnam
A generation of children forced to live without words. It begins as a statistical oddity: a spike in children born with acute speech delays. Physically normal in every way, these children never speak and do not respond to speech; they don´t learn to read, don´t learn to write. As the number of cases grows to an epidemic level, theories spread. Maybe it´s related to a popular antidepressant; maybe it´s environmental. Or maybe these children have special skills all their own. The Silent History unfolds in a series of brief testimonials from parents, teachers, friends, doctors, cult leaders, profiteers, and impostors (everyone except, of course, the children themselves), documenting the growth of the so-called silent community into an elusive, enigmatic force in itself - alluring to some, threatening to others. Both a bold storytelling experiment and a propulsive reading experience, Eli Horowitz, Matthew Derby, and Kevin Moffett´s The Silent History is at once thrilling, timely, and timeless. 1.

Silent Witness begins in 1967, in a small Midwestern town. Seventeen-year-old Tony Lord, Lake City´s star athlete, seems destined for great things. His driving ambition is precisely what attracts Alison Taylor, the daughter of the town´s leading family, and it is what sets Tony apart from his 2 closest friends: Sam Robb and Sam´s girl, Sue Cash. Suddenly everything changes. Alison Taylor is brutally murdered, and Tony is the number one suspect. The town turns against him. His friendship with Sam is destroyed. And Tony leaves Lake City, vowing never to return. Twenty-seven years later, an urgent phone call from Sue changes Tony´s life once more. For Tony Lord is now a San Francisco lawyer - a relentless advocate dedicated to the defense of his clients. Sue´s plea for help is one he cannot ignore: her husband, Sam Robb, now the vice principal of Lake City High School, is suspected of the murder of a female student. In seeking to save him, Tony must confront not only the fear that Sam is a murderer, but the concealed passions and buried truths that underlie Alison´s death so long ago. 1. Language: English.
