Rebecca is an author in New York's Hudson Valley. Rebecca studied fiction writing at Sarah Lawrence College and went on to earn her Masters in Social Work at Hunter College School of Social Work. Rebecca was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Her love of reading began with the Brooklyn Public Library at Grand Army Plaza and she has been writing as long as she was able to hold a pencil. Walking along the Hudson River is where most of her characters come to life and boss her around until she tells their stories.
Blurb: Alecia, Ivy, Thia, and Fiona are in a book club with only two rules: discuss the book and drink as much wine as possible. When the women discover their daughters are harboring a terrible secret, they set out to uncover the truth, forcing them to examine their own lives, motivations, and loyalties. Alecia Caulding has built a perfect life for her husband Everett and their 13-year old daughter Hannah in the glossy suburbs of Westchester, New York. Her own abusive childhood is deeply hidden beneath the veneer of perfection. Ivy Barnet left a high-powered career as an attorney to be a stay-at-home mom to her three sons. She will stop at nothing to help her friends protect their daughters, even if it means confronting truths she’d rather not face. Thia Daniels, dental hygienist and practicing Wiccan, spends her days wrangling her unruly children, and wondering why she isn’t as happy as she should be. Fiona Payne is co-parenting with her ex-husband and his new wife, who happens to have been Fiona’s divorce attorney. Fiona thought Chloe had adjusted well to their version of a modern family, and she wonders how she could have gotten it so wrong. Praise for Unspoken: "Unspoken is a riveting, emotionally astute, unsettling story of a predator’s ripple effect on family and community. It delves not just into secrets, but how they are perpetuated and their widespread impact. Unspoken is an outstanding story that lingers in the mind long after its reading." D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer Midwest Book Review "A MUST for your TBR list! Fast-paced! Riveting! Exciting! Addictive! Not only is this a very well-written book with wonderfully-interesting characters, but the suspense builds at just the right pace as the story unfolds. It was an artful melding of twisted psychological thrills and nail-biting suspense that kept me guessing the whole way!" Tam "So excited to recommend Rebecca Chianese’s new book - Unspoken. The book pulls you in from page one as you meet each of the main characters and follow them on an unexpected journey. These 4 friends will be pushed to decide how far they are willing to go to be a good friend, a good wife, and most of all, a good mother." Patti G. "Twisty and disturbing with a glossy rose-colored glasses world that eventually implodes. Best read with a glass of wine toward the middle." Jillian L.
