Karen sent me the first book in the Bibliophiles series. Whisper to a Scream is the first book about two women who share a similar frustration.
Annie and Sarah both have something the other wants. Sarah is a mother of two looking for time for herself and help with the house and the children. Annie would give anything to have a child. Both women see a flyer that promotes a new book club commencing at the Community Center. They will be reading the classics. Will each woman capture the desire of her heart? How will they respond to disappointment?
This book evoked emotion and one could feel the frustration that each woman felt. I want to support and be the friend of both Sarah and Annie. The theme of this book is jealousy and comparisons we make. Sometimes it is very easy to judge someone else and not see how the grass is always greener on the other side. The writer did well to communicate the frustration and plotted well the story and length.
Who hasn’t made comparisons in one’s life? To write a very emotional story says something about the author. Who would you root for here Sarah or Annie? Who can identify with the types of struggles they went through?
