A Whisper To The Living
A Whisper To The Living | Ruth Hamilton
4 posts | 1 to read
Annie Byrne was born during one of the worst winters Lancashire ever remembered. When the doctor finally got through the nine-foot drifts of snow, mother and daughter were in a pretty bad way, but both the new-born Annie and her exhausted mother - a spinner in the cotton mill - were fighters, tough and determined not to let the world knock them down. They needed to be tough, for when Annie's father was killed in the war, Nancy married again. And Eddie Higson - once he'd courted and won Nancy Byrne - turned into a nightmare of a man, terrorizing the young girl with one secret evil after another. She had two friends who helped her through these bad years. Martin Cullen, rough, uneducated, loyal, who knew he wasn't good enough for her, and David Pritchard, the doctor who had supported her through the worst times and who had bad problems of his own. Together they watched her grow into a beautiful young woman, desperately fighting the legacy of her childhood.

Not entirely #War related, so this is post 1 of 2 🙂

Annie was born during a harsh winter, but both Annie and her mother Nancy were fighters, determined to survive. When Annie's father was killed in the war, Nancy married Eddie despite the rumours surrounding him. Once married, he became a nightmare for Annie. Her two friends Martin and David support her through the hard times and watch her grow, and overcome her past.

For this challenge I am going with one of my favourite books, A Whisper to the Living. Although the content is at times difficult, I found it inspiring. The main character Annie goes through a lot, and yet becomes an intelligent and independent woman who is determined to overcome her childhood and make a good life for herself. She also has some amazingly supportive friends, and a mother who does her best ❤️

I'm actually remembering to do #recommendsday this week and I'm recommending one of my favourites!

It's not an easy read, but it is an incredibly beautiful and touching novel. The characters are complex, and the relationships between them are realistic and honest. This is sort of a coming of age story, but also about overcoming a difficult past, and learning how to trust/love.

It is difficult for me to do this book justice, but it is amazing!
