WHISPERED_AD1

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 of 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 Since her father died two years ago, she’s grown quiet and withdrawn.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’ve stepped into my life, I’m not sure I can let them go. *This book is intended for mature audiences, ages 18+. It may be enjoyed as a standalone! WHISPERED_AD2 Exclusive excerpt from the pages of Whispered Prayers of a Girl: "I don't deserve you. I don’t deserve whatever could happen between us.” I want to object, but he continues before I get a chance. “But there’s something I want more than my self-loathing for wanting something I shouldn’t.” “What?” I rasp. “A chance to know what it feels like to kiss you.”


I have a list of books I've read this year that I gift to my friends and family...the list isn't long.  In fact, there's probably only 5 books on there worth giving to others or rereading.  If you don't read a book all year long - then pick this one up to read.  I'm a procrastinator when it comes to the clock.  If it's a book that I want to read - it's on!  If it's a book where I'm going to have deep feelings then I wait til the last minute because I know I'm going to have to write a review and do it justice.  This book for me rated up there with Amy Harmon's Making Faces and if you reach that status for writing a novel, then I'll read every book you've ever written.  That's a hard standard.  Alex Grayson did an outstanding job at storytelling that I loved living in Alexander and Gwen's world for several hours and it was both heartbreaking and heartwarming.

Books for me are cathartic.  I cry, I laugh, and sometimes I don't finish them.  When I start to read a book about a little girl who only whispers prayers to God at night to bring her father back because he died...I weep.  If you can make me cry a river in the first ten percent - I hate and love you. 

 Kelsey has selective mutism, which is where you choose not to speak after having a tragedy or trauma happen.  It can sometimes be helped with therapy, but more often than not the person stays silent and doesn't speak because of high anxiety.  The child in this book misses her father so bad that she believes she caused his death.  It's not rational but she thinks it.  Her brother, Daniel, not only lost his father but feels he lost his sister.  Until they get stuck in a snow storm and Alexander rescues them or they rescue each other.  Alexander's just existing after a car accident took his wife and daughter 4 years prior.  He's not dead, but he's not alive.  He just exists with his horses and his dogs.  For me, the story had an ebb and flow that was like a river.  It left all these emotions in me and I was so keyed up after I read it, I didn't want to go to bed - which is what I needed to do after staying up all night long.  
One of my favorite scenes is at the 40 percent mark and Kelsey comes out of the bedroom in the middle of the night and she hasn't spoken to anyone in 2 years, except to ask for her mom to bring her dad back and to ask if her mom was going to die when she had the flu.  She comes out and stares at Alexander and then runs into his arms saying "I miss my daddy." I used the whole box of kleenex!!  Gone...just like that!  Again, if there's one book you pick up this whole year and buy, whether is be ebook or paperback...it needs to be this book.  You won't be sorry that you did.

After spending several years as a devoted reader and blogger, Alex decided to write and independently publish her first novel in 2014 (an endeavor that took a little longer than expected). The rest, as they say, is history.
Originally a southern girl, Alex now lives in Ohio with her husband, two children, two cats and dog. She loves the color blue, homemade lasagna, casually browsing real estate, and interacting with her readers. Visit her website, www.alexgraysonbooks.com, or find her on social media!
