Sometimes family life can present challenges. When the Silent Speak tells the compelling yet uplifting story of a tight-knit group of teenagers, each of whom is struggling with life and the people around them: Eirini battles for independence from her overprotective mother. Paraschos, also known as “Squirrel,” is wounded by the fighting of his parents. Anastasis is embarrassed by his step-brother and step-sister. And Giannis, following the death of his beloved father, has not spoken a single word for seven years.

Determined to find answers to their problems, the four friends embark on a pilgrimage to a mountaintop monastery—and commence a journey filled with miracles and wonder. Among other things, the teens encounter a mysterious deer and meet a grace-filled monk, Fr. Philaretos, who seemingly can read people’s thoughts and communicate with wild animals. Set in modern-day Greece, When the Silent Speak is an exciting tale in which the complexities of contemporary life meet the deep beauty and profound wisdom of Orthodox teaching.
