While on vacation in South America, trekking across the andes, Isla is abducted at gunpoint, bound and gagged, gang raped and left for dead. Against the odds she battles her way barefoot over twenty miles of mountainous terrain in the dark, crawling and praying her way through the longest night back to civilization.The after effects of violence ricochet through Isla’s life. Psychologically she is deeply damaged, her relationship ends, she can no longer act and the life she once knew is left in ruins, but when Isla meets Sal, a cockney market trader, an unusual friendship is born. Isla becomes enchanted by the colourful market where Sal has her stall and over time she becomes a part of the “family.” The warmth and camaraderie of the traders and their leftfield lives help Isla to fall back in love with life, and as her faith in humanity is gradually restored, so begins the journey back to hope and healing.Silence of clouds is a book about trauma, betrayal, love and hope. It’s a story of strength, the beauty of friendship, and the joy of taking a leap into the unknown.
