Garden Of Silence Summary
It wasn’t until I lost my husband and daughter that I realized my world was warped. The second life that came like a miracle is going to be useful for me now.MU
Garden Of Silence starts off quite typically, with a pitiful female lead who is fooled by her brother-in-law. However, as she’s given a second chance at life, she starts realizing how evil her in-laws really are.
Our female lead sets out changing the way she’s doing things. Including kicking the rats out, with no regret. The in-laws are so annoying, especially the brother-in-law. I’m not sure why, but these manhwa series bring out the inner rage in me.
I just want to smack them with a chair or two.
Anyway, our female lead is deciding to just leave everything and getting a clean slate. However, she’s not knowing her first love is returning to her.
You see, she initially starts out with a relationship which ends when he goes to war. She marries another man who has a daughter, whom she ends up loving like her own.
After their death, she’s heartbroken but her husband leaves everything to her. In the first life, her brother-in-law steals her inheritance with a forged will.
I’m enjoying the story so far, but in terms of revenge stories it’s not standing out too much. The villains are dislikeable, and seems clear-cut.
It doesn’t seem to be a lot of hidden motivations behind why they act the way they do. Instead, we’re just lead to believe they’re greedy and bad people.
It makes it seem a bit shallow.. I understand some people are just trash, but there should be some motivations behind their trashy behaviours. Not just saying “oh they’re bad people” and leave it at that.
I suppose the brother-in-law is feeling attraction towards our female lead, but doesn’t explain why he uses her in THAT way and not tries to remarry her or sexually abuses her.
Recommendation: Overall I’m not hating the story and it’s worth reading if it becomes licensed, but it doesn’t feel like anything super special.
