My review of Songs Without Words in the Oregonian

I review mysteries, thrillers, YA with a NW focus, and the occasional work of literary fiction in the Oregonian. I really liked Songs Without Words. Some reviewers seem to have wanted more action, but to me it was one of the "realest" books I've ever read.

It's the story of two women who were friends in high school, to the point that one family takes the other girl in after her mother commits suicide. Suicide and mental illness are themes that runs all through the book, and there were times I was afraid to read it because I was worried about the characters.
