Publisher Comments:

Widowed just two days after her marriage to a man twice her age, Marnie finds herself an outsider in the remote seaside village of Torcurra. Spurned by the townsfolk who suspect her involvement in her husband's death, she has only two friends: the local priest and the madman known as Raver, who is even more of an outcast than Marnie.

Marnie makes a remarkable discovery about Raver, whom she renames Raven, and the two forge a deep bond that begins to heal her own bruised heart. But the suspicious villagers see Raven's transformation as evidence of witchcraft, and suddenly Marnie finds herself facing an ordeal that threatens not only her future with Raven, but her very life.


Set in medieval times, The Raging Quiet is "an ageless story about the power of love that should leave a satisfying and lasting impression on its reader." School Library Journal (Starred Review)

This book has been my all time favourite, I read it when I was 11 and now 19 I still read it.
The love story between Raven and Marnie really made my heart thump, it is hard for me to find a beleivable love story like this, let alone it tells the hardships of finding love and knowing what it really is, that a man and a woman can love each other no matter what differences they have.
Marnie can also relate to alot of other girls in the world, how head strong and willing she is to try to understand, to think of others before herself but for it to crumble down all around her really taught me the lesson of it's good to be head strong and proud, but it'll be a hard life and sometimes it's ok to keep your mouth shut.
This book has always been here for me, and I will love it untill the end of time.

This book has it all! A romance that isn't too sickly sweet and cutesy, action, terror and heartbreak. You literally won't want to put this book down; the synopsis just doesn't do it justice!
