Whisper Me This Reviews
WARNING: This book contains extreme triggers for people who have suffered abuse. The description provided does not adequately emphasize the central role of severe domestic violence that this story contains. If you have a history of abuse, proceed with caution.
I felt it was imperative to post the above warning because I found it exceedingly difficult to finish this book. By the time I was about three-fourths of the way through it, I had to take medication to prevent an anxiety attack. I suppose I ...more
First I'd like to say that I love the cover of this book and that Kerry Ann King, like me, is from Canada and I love supporting Canadian authors as much as possible.
More than just a family drama, this novel is packed with secrets, betrayals and deception. This book is a well written enthralling story, with excellent character development, which takes the reader through the emotional effects of domestic violence. And while I liked the character of Tony and believe that his story was an ...more
Whisper Me This is an incredible emotional drama with generations of unspeakable secrets, fragmented memories, lies, deep grief, fear and yet love and hope. Maisey is brought suddenly back home with her 13 year old daughter Elle to deal with her dying mother and father who appears to be in an unbalanced state of mind. This story is written with such compassion, and relatable characters your heart just aches for, and others so horrible you want to do then in. There are journal pages that give cl ...more
Whisper Me This is a page turner filled with family secrets! Maisey is a single mother trying to raise her daughter. Maisey's mother is found sick and neglected and her father is a suspect. While dealing with the aftermath, she finds a long buried secret from her mother's past. Kerry Anne King is a new author for me and I will be looking at her other books!
My favorite books are those that make me think, and feel; books that tackle a difficult subject...abusive relationships in this book...without pulling punches, but leaving me hopeful in the end. Kerry Anne King has written this spectacular story, one which left me in tears, feeling all of the emotions...fear, anger, love, pain, desperation, strength, grief, courage. I felt like I was right in the room with the characters; flesh and blood characters who were complicated and complex; I was sufferi ...more
Loved the book. There were so many secrets kept hidden from Maisey. Loved the story, writing style and characters. Although, most of the characters were horrible people. Thank goodness Maisey grew up with Howard as a dad, because her mom was awful. Leah reminded me of Joan Crawford. Between Leah and Greg, no wonder Maisey is the way she is. Sometimes I forgot Elle was only twelve, she seemed very grownup and more mature than some of the adults. I LOVED Howard, especially how he stood up to Greg ...more
Kind of mixed feeling while reading this book. I have read faster than I thought despite the slow-paced storyline.
It's about domestic violence & family problems. More on fiction, not mystery.
“Whisper me truth, whisper me lies.
All the things you did wrong, you did exactly right.”
