Check out this title and more on:Eloise Montgomery discovers her amazing gift in the wake of tragedy in this first of three captivating stories that make up an e-novella from award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Lisa Unger.
It's a day like any other for Eloise Montgomery--until tragedy strikes. While she is recovering from a horrible accident that takes the lives of her husband and oldest daughter, and as she works to help her younger daughter move forward, Eloise experiences her first psychic vision. Though she struggles to understand her newfound gifts, Eloise finds a way use them to save lost women and girls--for whom her help may be the only way out…
It is also a prequel to Lisa Unger's novel FRAGILE, in which Eloise is first introduced. Eloise Montgomery is further explored in DARKNESS, MY OLD FRIEND.From an author whose "gripping narrative and evocative, muscular prose" (Associated Press) have won her critical acclaim comes The Whispers: a story that delves deep into the human psyche and the mind of one unforgettable heroine.
This is a short story of a woman named Eloise whose perfect Happily Ever After world has been forever changed by a tragic accident. After she recovers from her injuries, she discovers that she has developed an unusual gift. She begins to have visions of young girls who are apparently victims of accidents or crimes. Sometimes the visions she sees leaves small clues that can help save the victims. But, sometimes she's too late. It's always a race against the clock!
This is one of those "life can change in an instant" stories. I think in Eloise's case... the gift she now has becomes a tool she can use to help save lives which is a small way of honoring the memories of her lost husband and daughter. They lost their lives but in exchange maybe she will be able to save others from losing someone they love. It's a nice premise for a story.
This is a type of story I've read before or seen portrayed in the movies... it has some resemblance to the series called The Dead Zone, which I used to love to watch. It also reminded me a little of The Sixth Sense... just not nearly as scary. Even though it is a familiar storyline, I don't think seeing dead people ever really gets old. These stories always hits me in the heart. This was a nice quick read to kill an hour or so... and the first installment of a three part series.
