Review: Whispered Prayers of a Girl

For this review, I chose Whispered Prayers of a Girl by Alex Grayson.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
A tortured soul meets a damaged family…
A lonely man, a widowed woman, a carefree boy, and a broken girl… Can the four come together and help heal each other? Or will fear of the unknown and guilt about the past keep them apart?

Her whispered prayers break her...
At night, as she’s drifting off to sleep, I press my ear to the door and listen to her heart-wrenching pleas. Her words are agony to my healing heart, but I cherish the sound of them, for that’s the only time I ever hear my beautiful daughter speak. Since her father died two years ago, she’s grown quiet and withdrawn. Cat’s Valley was to be our new beginning, a place where my family and I can heal, but what we find there is so much more.

Scars mar his body. Pain has left him in pieces…
Four years ago, I lost the two things I cherished most in the world. They were ripped from my arms in the most painful and cruel way. Since then, I’ve kept to myself, preferring to stay away from the pitying looks and murmured rumors. Everything changed when she and her children barged into my life. It was an accident, and I don’t deserve them, but now that they’re here, I’m not sure I can let them go.

This is a new to me author and I loved this book a lot.  So many emotions during my reading it.  It was so sad to read what Alexander went through.  He carries that loss with him every day.  He sees it every time he looks in the mirror.  Alexander stays by himself.  He blocks the world out.  He blames himself for his loss.  Gwen moved her kids to Cat's Valley to start over.  She and her kids lost someone they loved dear.  They meet by chance.  Like fate wanted them to meet.  Gwen and her kids are stuck in the snow.  Alexander saves them and they stay with him.  I think they all needed each other in order to heal.

So much loss in this book.  It was written so well.  I felt their loss while I read it.  I highly recommend this book.  It was worth the tears.  I can not wait to see what else this author writes.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Happy Reading!
