Don't Breathe A Word is a novel about Sam and his missing sister, Lisa. Lisa has been missing for fifteen years. After a childhood of fairy tales and being told the fairies lived in the woods, Lisa disappeared into the woods that summer all those years ago, leaving her brother Sam with unanswered questions.
Fifteen years have gone by. Sam is about to become a Father for the first time. His girlfriend Phoebe is everything to him and they are the perfect couple. Until Sam receives a letter from Lisa, she is ready to come back from the fairies. That letter stirs up the memories of that long ago summer and as things unfold, Sam and Phoebe start uncovering the deep, dark secrets of Sam's family. Is the woman who emerged from the woods really Lisa? Where has she been all of these years and was it really the King of Fairies who had her all this time?
At first I did not know what to think about Don't Breathe A Word. It starts off a bit slow and a bit confusing, but the deeper you get into the novel, the more the pieces start coming together. The line between fantasy and reality is definitely blurred, but in a way that makes you believe that maybe fairies really do exist! I really did enjoy Don't Breathe A Word, the last 100 pages had my heart racing and my jaw dropping when the truth became clear. If you pick it up, don't give up, the ending is really worth the read!
