Is there a such thing as a generational curse? Can our sins, dysfunctions, emotions and poor choices be passed down to our children? In The Scream Of Silence: A Short Story Thriller by Pamela Crane, you will be on the edge of your seat as you walk in the shoes of Destiny Childs as she learns the fate of her daughter, Clarissa Beatty. Destiny became pregnant at fifteen. When the baby was born, Destiny had no desire to be connected with the child. Coincidence would have it that Destiny and her daughter would somehow reconnect, but under terrible and unfortunate circumstances; death. Twenty-three years later, Destiny saw on the news that Clarissa Beatty was murdered. Destiny knew that Clarissa was the child that she gave away. It made the news because she was adopted by a wealthy family. Something in Destiny shifted because she wanted to know how could this happen to her child and to make the Beatty family pay for it.

We are, or were all, broken vessels at some point of our lives. Reading The Scream Of Silence: A Short Story Thriller by Pamela Crane helps you to walk with Destiny as she begins to peel back the layers of her broken past. The Scream Of Silence displays how far we will go. Initially Destiny was set on extortion, but later realized that in order to move forward in her future, she must let go and embrace her past, beginning with the death of her daughter. How far are you willing to go to silence that scream within you?
