I’m reading again! Martha has some books she was going to give away, but not before I read them! The titles, book covers, “What people are saying about…” and the blurb on the back of the books grabbed my attention. It’s nice to read a printed novel again.
This week I read Talking to the Dead by Bonnie Gove. This was her debut novel in 2009. Bonnie developed and wrote social programs for families before she began her career as an author. Many authors were quoted on the pages of recommendations that I hold in esteem, Francine River, Ane Mulligan, Mary Demuth.
I hope you like the YouTube preview video of the of the book. What I liked about the book is that it begins in the middle of trauma for Kate. “Kevin was dead and the people in my house wouldn’t go home.” I don’t want to quit reading. Each chapter I discover something else that the young widow is plagued by. These things are clues to where she’s been and where she is now. For instance, Kevin, her dead husband is talking to her; she doesn’t remember parts of her past; is she crazy?
All the questions will be answered, slowly but surely. There will be ah ha moments as well as oh no surprises.
