Anne Frank: the symbol of the Holocaust. Yet six million voices reverberate in utter silence. Margot Frank, unbeknownst to many, kept a diary in hiding too. The Silent Sister is Margot’s viewpoint and her personal journey. Margot lets us into her world, her take on the War, the Annexe, Peter, and her secret love, Mordechai, and more. Margot’s experiences are juxtaposed with Anne’s in an original and ultimately triumphant new voice— a voice that has been waiting silently to emerge from the ashes of the Shoah. Margot Frank can now join her lovely sister in the collective testimony of the inexorable human spirit forced to submit to the horrors of the Holocaust, and despite it all, to somehow love, to somehow remain humane and free.

"In this extensive collection of essays, Collins delves into the complex causes of, and reasons for, silent characters from an already silenced region. Her insightful analysis of these voiceless characters in Appalachian literature unveils important metaphors for power and powerlessness in literature and in Appalachian identity as a whole."--Amanda Rachelle Warren, author of Ritual no.3: For the Exorcism of Ghosts "The Silent Appalachians gives eloquent voice to a diverse set of non-verbal characters, at the same time bringing the reader to a deeper understanding of the authorial uses of the sounds of silence. Collins' scholarly study focuses like a high beam flashlight on a small subset of characters, but the peripheral glow of that spotlight is unexpectedly far-reaching and illuminating."--Vicki Lane, author of The Day of Small Things and the Elizabeth Goodweather Appalachian Mysteries. Appalachian literature is filled with silent or non-discursive characters. The reasons for their wordlessness vary. Some are mute or pretend to be, some choose not to speak or are silenced by grief, trauma or fear. Others mutter monosyllables, stutter, grunt and point, speak in tongues or idiosyncratic language. They capture the reader's attention by what they don't say.
If you are a fan of Jodi Picoult or Susan Lewis, The Escape Artist is equal parts family drama, love story and thriller. Diane Chamberlain is the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Silent Sister and The Midwife's Confession. Susanna Miller loses custody of her eleven-month-old son, Tyler, but rather than turning the little boy over to her ex-husband and his new wife, she goes on the run. She dyes her hair, changes her name and escapes from Boulder, Colorado, leaving behind everyone she knows including Linc Sebastian, the man who has been her best friend since childhood and who knows her better than anyone. Susanna lands in Annapolis, Maryland, alone, frightened, and always looking over her shoulder for someone who might recognize her. Just as she's beginning to feel safe in her new surroundings, she stumbles across information that could save the lives of many people . . . if she's willing to take it to the police. But going to the authorities means revealing her identity, admitting her guilt and, worst of all, losing her son.
This collection of new essays seeks to define the unique qualities of female heroism in literary fantasy from Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings in the 1950s through the present. Building upon traditional definitions of the hero in myth and folklore as the root genres of modern fantasy, the essays provide a multi-faceted view of an important fantasy character type who begins to demonstrate a significant presence only in the latter 20th century. The essays contribute to the empowerment and development of the female hero as an archetype in her own right.
