About the Book:
Whispers: The heart’s way of speaking… Madison Ragnar is a high school English teacher determined to connect with her students, to finish the next running race with a respectable time, and to avoid ever falling in love again. But life has other plans for Madison. A man named Michael shows himself in the most unexpected places, raising questions from her best friend, Olivia, and issues around Madison’s last relationship. In the classroom, the death of a student prompts her grieving ninth graders to depend on her for answers. They turn to journal writing as a form of understanding the weight of what’s happened in the walls of their teenage existence. When Madison meets Phil, who throws a wrench in her declaration to not fall in love, it seems that her escape through miles of running is the only real footing she has in life. Will fate determine Madison’s life? Or will she have a say in its outcome?

My Review:
I really loved Ms. Hummel’s writing style! She quickly and wholly captured me and kept me hooked until the end. Her characters are well though out, and vividly portrayed. Each one had their own unique personality, yet complimented the others.

Madison’s character really reached out to me. I could relate to Madison in so many ways. I had a rocky marriage that ended in divorce, so I could feel her pain in that. I think that’s what connected me to Madison the most.

Michael and Phil’s characters were both portrayed well, also. They lent the uniqueness of the story. Between them, I loved watching how Madison reacted.

I loved the way Ms. Hummel captured the emotions of happiness, anger, death and heartache and then turned them out to a story that will take the reader on a roller coaster ride. It had me smiling, crying, and sometimes angry right along side the characters of this well written novel.

I highly recommend this story to everyone. With a bit of mysteriousness, romance, heartache and drama, this will capture any story lovers heart for the long run. Definitely 4 Books worthy and I am looking forward to reading the second novel in this series.
