Soon after Ann Ferguson and Ben Grable marry, when Ben unseals his adoption papers, their perfect life together is torn apart, sending the couple to opposite sides of the courtroom.
Representing Ann, lawyer Michael J. McConaughey (Mac) feels this is the case that could have far-reaching, judicial effects -- the one he's been waiting for.

Literary thriller HUSH not only questions one of the most controversial laws that has divided the nation for over four decades, but captures a story of the far-reaching ties of family that surpasses time and distance.

Throughout my life, I have had friends and acquaintances I have met who were adopted; some had unsealed their adoption papers and found one or both adoptive parents; others had not. In 2010, I feel fell in love with a man who had been adopted. He was gentle, loving, and kind, but had many questions and insecurities about his adoption.

Putting all of the research together, Hush was born.

Hush is new, so 23 out of the 28 reviews have an overall rating of 4.7.  (Makes me tingle all over : )
