About the Author
Helen Pryke

Born in England, Helen Pryke went to live in Italy when she was 20. She had to learn the language, the culture, and the Italian way of doing things, all very different from what she was used to. After having two sons, she dedicated herself to her passion for writing. She has also been working for some years as a translator. Walls of Silence is her first novel, inspired by the dark, fascinating side of Italy and her passion for this beautiful, complicated country.
