Lady Evelyn Carlisle has returned home to England, where she is completing her degree at St. Hugh’s, a women’s college in Oxford. Her days are spent poring over ancient texts and rushing to tutorials. All is well until a fateful morning, when her peaceful student life is turned on its head. Stumbling upon the gruesome killing of someone she thought she knew, Evelyn is plunged into a murder investigation once more, much to the chagrin of her friends and family, as well as the intriguing Detective Lucas Stanton. The dreaming spires of Oxford begin to appear decidedly less romantic as she gathers clues, and learns far more than she ever wished to know about the darkness lurking beyond the polished veneer. Can she solve the crime before the killer strikes once more, this time to Evelyn’s own detriment?

My Review
The Study of Silence was a well written novel that I greatly enjoyed! Lady Evelyn Carlisle was a student at St. Hugh’s women college in Oxford. The fact that the main character was a student was a great draw to me as I only recently completed my bachelor's degree so I was able to really feel like I was able to connect with Lady Evelyn Carlisle's background to a certain extent.
