Summary

Adeline, a mute who takes refuge in a convent, haunted by memories of her past; Sebastien, a young Jewish banker whose love for the beautiful Isabelle will change the course of his life dramatically; Tristan, a nine-year-old boy whose family moves from Paris to settle in a village that is seemingly untouched by war. Utterly compelling and with a shocking true story at its core, The Silent Hours is an unforgettable portrayal of love and loss.
