Julie Berry

Berry’s debut novel is a historical murder mystery and romance about a village outcast in a close-knit community. One summer, Judith Finch and her friend Lottie Pratt disappeared. After two years, only Judith returned. Her appearance shocked the town because her tongue had been cut out. She is shunned by most of the townspeople, including her own mother. Judith finds solace in silently pouring out her thoughts to Lucas, the only boy she has ever loved. Although her silence protects her, eventually, Judith is forced to choose: continue to live in silence, or recover her voice, and forever change the lives of everyone around her.
