The Words We Whisper | Mary Ellen Taylor

After about a 2yr hiatus from WW2 books, I decided to pick this one up and am glad. I love the legacy of all who helped the Jewish families escape, books like this will continue to highlight those brave souls. Taylor did a wonderful job preserving that and weaving the lives of the next generations. The characters “today” learn of their grandmothers remarkable past as she encourages them to read a treasured diary written during WW2. Book #6 in 2022

🎧 Narrator‘s voice for Nick is comical.

#6 in the series but could be a stand alone.

Tina (a stranger) lands on the island. Julie invites her to stay at the inn for X-mas. Julie/hubby have adopted Dillon whose father is deceased & mother abandoned him.

Julie‘s mom gets a surprise visit from a HS sweetheart that wants to whisk her away but she‘s just settled in.

Dixie‘s step-daughter needs to come to terms with her.

Heart warming.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Barnett does an incredible job of bringing the problem of mass incarceration to the attention of the public. She addresses well-known but as of yet, unresolved issues regarding sentence disparities, racism in the criminal justice system, lack of treatment & re-entry preparation for individuals released from custody, & life sentences for non violent crimes. ⭐⭐⭐⭐💫

This book affected me so much. It‘s about a young concert pianist who is attacked and the assailant crushes her hand. I play the piano, too, although I am not a concert pianist. I lost my hearing in my left ear and the possibility of not playing was real, but this girl could never play again. The book was so good and the narrators were excellent! #140 #BookSpinBingo #6, my #BS and gave me a Bingo! #BFC21 #DISABILITY #20in4 #RIF

My #NewYearWhoDis list from @thewallflower0707 is terrific! I will be starting with the tagged as it is on my shelf. I love that there is a book I hadn‘t heard of, #6, but sounds right up my alley so that will be my second read. 7, 9, and 11 are on my TBR and the rest I‘ve heard great things. I am hoping to get 4 read in January and clear the list through out the year. Thanks @monalyisha for another great match!

monalyisha You‘re welcome! Loving this list all over again, looking at it in this format. Thanks for posting! 2mo
