My Review of “Whisper Me This” by @Kerry Anne King Lake Union Publishing 2018
“Whisper Me This” by Kerry Anne King, is a thought-provoking, intriguing, intense and emotional read. The Genres for this novel are Fiction, Women’s Fiction, and Mystery. Kudos to Kerry Anne King for discussing issues of physical and emotional abuse and how it affects others.In this novel, the author not only describes a woman’s point of view, but shows the men’s reaction as well. The author writes about the importance of family, mother-daughter relationships, emotional support, honesty, love and hope. This is also a novel where the characters have many dark secrets. The timeline is in the present and goes back to the past when it pertains to the characters or events in the stories.
The author describes her characters as complex and complicated. As deep, dark secrets start to unravel, single mom. Maisey Addington finds that her world as she knows it will change forever. Maisey has a strong connection to her young daughter Elle, and would do anything to protect her. A phone call brings Maisey and Elle back to her hometown where her mother is in a coma, and it looks like her frail Dad might be responsible for it. Someone is responsible for older fractures and broken bones that Maisey’s Mom has.
When Maisey was a child, she would have an imaginary friend named Marley. Whenever Maisey would mention Marley’s name, her mother would go into quite a fury. Now it seems, that there really is a Marley, Maisey’s twin sister. Maisey becomes obsessed in finding her sister, and could be in danger. I would recommend this captivating story to readers that enjoy a thought-provoking, and suspenseful novel. I received an ARC from NetGalley for my honest review.
