About the book

The whole world disappears when you enter

THE SILENCE FACTORY

'I loved it. A delicately woven novel with an utterly original premise, it ensnared me from the very first page' EMILIA HART

GLOWING READER REVIEWS

‘Dark, compelling, fantastical and absorbing, Bridget Collins has done it again. Highly recommended'

‘Wholly original and unexpected… you are in the hands of a story telling master'

‘A splendid work of imagination, almost magical in places, but darkly realistic in others, and a great read'

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?

From the #1 bestselling author of THE BINDING, this is an enthralling story about complicity, desire and corruption – a novel to lose yourself in.
