Suzie and Orbs are in their thirties and have been together for a couple of years. Orbs reluctantly makes a living in the City and Suzie is a respected financial journalist, but each has another life hidden from the outside world... Their secret existence is threatened first when Suzie is offered a highly visible job, and then by an accident that turns their lives upside down. This is their struggle to survive as partners.
A Note From the Publisher
The quiet strength of The Silence Diaries is the way extraordinary people, a Fool, a political ventriloquist and a hearer of voices, are seen engaged in the everyday struggle for closeness and authenticity, a drama that resolves itself not in twists and denouements but in human virtues: patience, kindness and mutual understanding.
