This awesome book written by Robert Thier titled Storm And Silence took me a few good weeks to finish enjoying the good old 97 chapters of story!!
Storm And Silence is based in a Victorian decade (you dont happen to come across this type of books easily, and that is the main reason why it attracted me to read it in the first place) talking about man being the one that leads the society. Woman generally stay at home or go to balls and get herself a good potential husband!!
One day the female lead named Lillian Lintoon (Lily for short) met the male lead Rikkard Ambrose at a voting election. He mistook Lily for a male and hired her on the spot asking her to report to work the next day at his company.😛
When Lily dressed in a hoop skirt and report at his desk the very next day, it got Mr Ambrose so very hot in the head (although he seems to have one hell of a cold facade on his face) that he sent her back home…😦
But being the fiery Lily, of course she will not obey his wishes. Instead she challenged him by saying that if he did not hire her then he will be going against his gentleman honour!! Being the perfect gentleman that Rikkard Ambrose is, he can only clenched his teeth real hard and keep her in his employment.😉
Of course being the “evil and calculative” man in business he is, he tried all ways and means to make Lily resigned. It only made Lily more determind to stay in his employment!!
In Lily’s opinion being hired by Rikkard Ambrose is her golden ticket to freedom and against her Aunt’s wish to get her married off to the next man walking on the side walk of her home (this man need to have to be rich enough for her Aunt’s liking and society status need to be in high ranking)!!😛
The story continued with Lily and Rikkard Ambrose having all sorts of banter!! It is always such a joy to read when the chapter revolves around their bantering!! Especially funny when Lily won against Rikkard Ambrose!! Yet he always like to address Lily as Mister Linton!! Which ticks Lily off to no ends!!😀
In my humble opinion I will give it a rating of 4 out of 5 stars!! The only bad thing about this book is that it actually ended on a cliff hanger (literally the story is an open ending kind!! Just because the author wanted to do a sequel, sobbing away…)!!😦
Personally I would prefer if he did a sequel, at least for this book one he could have gave the two lead characters a happy ending!!😦 Anyway another reason why I gave 4 out of 5 stars is because it is such a super long story!! Considering that it is an electronic book!! It actually have a total of 97 chapters!!😦
Anyway did I mention before that if you are interested in reading this book you can go to wattpad and look for it??
I would recommend to read it only if you are a patient reader! If not this book may get on your nerves!! The tempo or flow of the book can be a bit slow at some parts!!
Have a good day people!!
