She was the Quiet One by Michelle Campbell is a dark tale. One that took me into the dark relationship of two sisters and a husband and his wife. The turn of events had me feeling sorry for the one sister. One sibling was a dark and greedy and the other was a victim. Sex, abuse of power, and betrayal are the main themes exploring here, on these pages. I was shocked, horrified, and felt sad. It was so realistic that it was like being there when it happened. The plot was full of suspense. I was never sure how it would have ended. Overall, I recommend this book, She was the Quiet One to readers everywhere.
