We all have secrets . . .

Jodie Garrow is a teenager from the wrong side of the tracks when she falls pregnant. Scared, alone and desperate to make something of her life, she adopts out the baby illegally – and tells nobody.

Twenty-five years on, Jodie has built a new life and a new family. But when a chance meeting brings the adoption to the notice of the authorities, Jodie becomes caught in a nationwide police investigation, and the centre of a media witch hunt.

What happened to Jodie's baby? And where is she now? The fallout from Jodie's past puts her whole family under the microscope, and her husband and daughter must re-examine everything they believed to be true.

Author

Wendy James

Wendy James wrote OUT OF THE SILENCE as a major component of a PhD in Creative Writing at Deakin University in Victoria, Australia. She spent eighteen months researching the era and its events, and while the book has been faithful to the historical period as possible, it is ultimately an imaginary work of fiction.
