Drie sterren in de Engelstalige publicatie Flanders Today. Ingrid Vander Veken has been writing for more than 25 years, publishing numerous novels, children’s books and a memoir. Zwijgen (Keep Silent) is a story about her own past, about the things her parents always kept silent such as the truth about her uncle, or what happened during the Second World War. Exploring truth, consequences and how one generation’s silence can influence the next, it’s a beautifully written novel filled with evocative descriptions. ★★★☆
