The Silence Factory by Bridget Collins

I listened to this on audible as it was narrated by Bridget which made it even more brilliant. Collins can do no wrong for me. Loved the Binding, loved the Betrayals and I loved this too. She is a perfect storyteller. There is a Dickensian feel to her work. The characters, the plot, all of it. A must read. Even if you don't like spiders. In fact, I believe she will make you like them, such is her power. No spoilers here from me. I can't even begin to describe this book. Just read it then message me and we can 'wow' together.

From the back

Henry dreams of silence.

A world without the clattering of carriages through cobbled streets, the distant cries of drunken brawls, the relentless ticking of the clock.

Then he meets a fascinating, mysterious gentleman who sells just that. Precious silk that can drown out the clamour of the world – and everything Henry is so desperate to escape.

Summoned to Sir Edward’s secluded factory to try to cure his young daughter’s deafness, Henry is soon drawn deeper and deeper into the origins of this otherworldly gift: a gift that has travelled from ancient Mediterranean glades to English libraries.

Ignoring repeated warnings from the girl's secretive governess, he allows himself to fall under the spell of Sir Edward and his silk… but when he learns its true cost, will it be too late to turn back?
