"A father and daughter living in the remote Appalachian mountains must reckon with the ghosts of their past in Kimi Cunningham Grant's These Silent Woods, a mesmerizing novel of suspense. No electricity, no family, no connection to the outside world. For eight years, Cooper and his young daughter, Finch, have lived in isolation in a remote cabin in the northern Appalachian woods. And that's exactly the way Cooper wants it, because he's got a lot to hide. Finch has been raised on the books filling the cabin's shelves and the beautiful but brutal code of life in the wilderness. But she's starting to push back against the sheltered life Cooper has created for her-and he's still haunted by the painful truth of what it took to get them there. The only people who know they exist are Scotland, an overly friendly hermit with murky intentions, and Cooper's old friend, Jake, who visits each winter to bring them food and supplies. But this year, Jake doesn't show up, setting off an irreversible chain of events that reveals just how precarious their situation really is. Suddenly, the boundaries of their safe haven have blurred-and when a stranger wanders into their woods, Finch's growing obsession with her could put them all in danger. When a shocking disappearance threatens to upend the only life Finch has ever known, Cooper is forced to decide whether to keep hiding-or finally face the sins of his past. Vividly atmospheric and masterfully tense, These Silent Woods is a poignant story of survival, sacrifice, and how far a father will go when faced with losing it all"--… (mer)

I loved this book! It's the first I've read of hers, and will definitely check out her other books.
The beginning of the back cover synopsis, "No electricity, no family, no connection to the outside world" enticed me right away, and the book delivered.
Cooper, and his daughter, Finch, have managed okay living in an old cabin in the woods, owned by a friend of Cooper's from his days in the service, a friend who brings them supplies every year.
Until the year his friend doesn't show up, and Cooper needs to take matters into his own hands to ensure their survival.
I loved every character in this story, the multifaceted personalities such as their only neighbor, Scotland. As their situation worsens, and the threat of Cooper's whereabouts escalate, he is backed into a corner, and this page-turning story will keep you guessing right to the very end.
Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me a copy of this interesting, well-told story! ( )

Living in a remote cabin in Appalachia, Cooper and his daughter, Finch, stay off the grid. When their friend, Jake, who provides them with food and supplies doesn't arrive one year, they know they need to make some changes.
A neighbor, Scotland, starts coming around. Cooper is very wary of him, as Cooper is hiding from the past that caused Finch and Cooper to disappear into the woods. When a stranger appears in their woods, Cooper knows that they are in danger.
This is a beautifully written story of a father's love, and the love of those who are willing to help you. The selfless deed near the end of the story is so beautiful.
I recommend this book and can't wait to read the author's backlist. ( )

Easy read about an ex soldier who kidnapes his daughter after his wife’s death, and decides to live in isolation with her in the woods. We learn why this happened and how he handles the situation when she starts to get older. ( )

Without giving away the plot of this book, I will just state that I found the narrative extremely problematic... and leave it at that.

If you are a woman with any political conviction at all, you will probably not like this book. In my opinion, it attempts to justify the very problematic actions of the protagonist.

These Silent Woods by Kimmi Cunningham Grant is the story of a secretive army vet who, upon the death of his girlfriend, almost loses custody of their baby daughter. He takes the baby and disappears into the Appalachian wilderness, living in a cabin owned by an army buddy of his. He fears that he is being sought and that his girlfriend’s parents will never give up the search. Then one day, he and his daughter see a stranger in the woods near their land and he fears that this could be the end of their safety.

I was completely pulled into this story, the author is also an award winning poet and this shows in her vivid and evocative writing. The relationship between the father and daughter pulls on the heart-strings and helps to make this book memorable. In fact, all the characters in the book are well developed and help to flesh out the riveting story.

These Silent Woods is a multilayered story, delivering both family relationships and suspense. There is a quiet thread of tension that runs throughout the story and makes the reader aware that the outside world could intrude at any moment. The author’s lyrical prose highlights her observations on nature and wildlife but there are a few plot holes and unbelievable twists that left me with some unanswered questions. ( )
