Maia Starfield’s parents taught her to hide her ability to sing silver, but when her mother sends her running from the Brotherhood, Maia must solve the mystery of her gift in order to survive and fulfill her destiny.
In THE SILVER CHILD, seventeen-year-old Maia is left homeless, penniless, and without any idea why her gift has left her in this situation. As she attempts to steer clear of the Brotherhood, a theocratic government with a stranglehold on power, she carries out her mother’s last instructions to her: find Albert Martus, the doctor who delivered her. Martus becomes entangled in Maia’s story, discovering his late wife all over again in the process. Set in a world very much like our own, THE SILVER CHILD explores family bonds both biological and emotional, the mysteries that surround even those people we feel we know well, and the ways in which power and religion can be wielded for good and for evil.
