A gripping, emotionally charged drama unfolding over a tumultuous week for Anna Mason, a Melbourne doctor: her newborn nephew’s life hangs in the balance, her parents meet after years of rage and silence, and Anna’s own heartbreak can no longer be denied.

Moving, complex, but ultimately life-affirming, this book explores what happens when families are silent for generations about painful emotional truths and how lives can change when the truth is finally spoken.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Pauline Schokman, in her debut novel, proves herself to be a master of narration, moving deftly between the story of families racked with anger and pain, and the events from the past out of which that pain was born. The Other Side of Silence is a riveting story in which the courage to face the truth of one’s own limitations, and the limitations of those whom one loves, allows for the possibility of change, for the hope to make a new beginning, even when time is running out. The reader comes away from The Other Side of Silence feeling a bit different from the person who picked up the book.'
--Thomas H. Ogden, author of The Parts Left Out and The Hands of Gravity and Chance
