The Silent Summer is the fourth volume in a new series of junior fiction from C.I.S. Publishers entitled "The Girls of Rivkah Gross Academy". In "Passport to Russia", the inaugural volume of the series, Bracha and Sara make two new friends as a result of an exciting adventure in Russia. In "The Secret Diary", these friends join them as their school travels to Pennsylvania for a special Shabbaton. In "The Golden Gate", the girls are treated to a surprise trip to San Francisco to attend the Bar Mitzvah of a cousin. In "The Silent Summer", the girls go to summer camp where they become involved in some startling developments. The puzzling events begin when Bracha and Sara overhear an old lady named Tante grumbling about diamonds in her garden. Tante lives in a cottage on camp grounds, but she keeps to herself. Cars come and go at all hours of the day and night, and strange noised can be heard through the window of her cottage. The girls find the mystery very absorbing and exciting. At the same time, the girls become involved with a young girl who has not spoken a single word for many years. They take her along with them on their chessed projects, hoping that by doing so they will be able to get through to her and get her talk again. But they certainly could not have anticipated the unexpected outcome of their efforts and activities.
