“A wonderful novelist . . . Ms. Rosen's writing is both tender and inspiring. The Disharmony of Silence unfolds with emotional and wise insights.”
-Bunny Shulman, author of After Aida
“There’s a lot going on in Linda Rosen’s The Disharmony of Silence, both in terms of the scope of years covered and the complex family relationships… Generally, it’s thought that honesty is always the best policy, so it’s interesting to see a character grapple with the idea that this truism may not, in fact, always be true. The ending gives the reader a lot to think about in those terms, and it’s an interesting and somewhat unexpected question for a novel to raise.”
- Indie Reader review

A one-of-a-kind story of how easily the bonds between one another come together and can just as easily fall apart, the story of connection plays prominently in this tale and will keep readers invested throughout…”
