Twentysomething Kate Davis can't seem to get this grieving-widow thing right. She's supposed to put on a brave face and get on with her life, right? Instead she's camped out on her living room floor, unwashed, unkempt, and unable to sleepbecause her husband, Kevin, keeps talking to her.
Is she losing her mind?
Kate's attempts to find the source of the voice she hears are both humorous and humiliating, as she turns first to an "eclectically spiritual" counselor, then a shrink with a bad toupee, a mean-spirited exorcist, and finally group therapy. There she meets Jack, the warmhearted, unconventional pastor of a ramshackle church, and at last the voice subsides. But when she stumbles upon a secret Kevin was keeping, Kate's fragile hold on the present threatens to implode under the weight of the past . . . and Kevin begins to shout.
Will the voice ever stop? Kate must confront her grief to find the grace to go on, in this tender, quirky story about second chances.
Bonnie Grove developed and wrote social programs for families at risk before landing her first publishing deal for Your Best You: Discovering and Developing the Strengths God Gave You. Talking to the Dead is her first novel. Grove and her pastor husband, Steve, have two children; they live in Saskatchewan.
JanieMichiganAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fascinating book!December 11, 2016JanieMichiganAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This truly is a book that is very hard to put down. From the very first it is so interesting and complicated. It definitely keeps a person off balance. But so fascinating that I kept trying to read more and figure it out. It has pathos and yet can be very funny (in a weird sort of way) at times.
You will really enjoy this book. Just be sure you have time because it is very difficult to stop reading. I read until 2:00 AM!
