Congrats to Dubuque Author Heather Gudenkauf

Congratulations to Dubuquer Heather Gudenkauf. Her debut novel, The Weight of Silence, was published by Mira Books on July 28, 2009.

Heather Gudenkauf is a University of Iowa grad and a local educator. Heather lives in Dubuque with her husband and children, and she is already working on her second novel.

The Weight of Silence is a fast-paced, suspenseful story about two girls who go missing from their small Iowa town. A preview is available here:

American Booksellers Association's Indie Next List describes The Weight of Silence as "a heartrending story of emotional ties told with gently lyrical language that belies brutal truths." Publisher's Weekly says, "Gudenkauf moves the story forward at a fast clip and is adept at building tension."

Heather Gudenkauf's publisher, MIRA Books, represents "the brightest stars in women's fiction, including today's bestselling authors and brand-new voices," such as Carla Neggers, Karen Harper, Diane Chamberlain, Susan Wiggs, Debbie Macomber, Deanna Raybourn, Heather Graham and many others.
