Whisper Me This Reviews
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
Whisper Me This was a solid 4 stars for me. An interesting book that centers around a woman named Maisey-who heads to her childhood home after discovering her mom is in the hospital and her dad is in a serious confused mental state. Maisey has much to contend with, including uncovering a family secret that will change her life forever. The big secret wasn’t all that shocking and the book was somewhat slower paced than I liked, but I would still highly recommend it to readers that like fictional ...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.”

Rich in emotions and characters, WHISPER ME THIS is a stunning tale of dark secrets, broken memories, and ultimately hope and resilience. The novel quickly pulls the reader onto a roller-coaster ride through grief, mystery, and cryptic journal entries. At the heart of the story is a twelve-year-old with more sense than most adults, and her mother, Maisey, who discovers the power of her voice and the courage to fight for her destiny. I can't recommend this book enough. A perfect book club pick!
