Synopsis

WINNER in the 2014 SAN DIEGO BOOK AWARDS, BEST YA NOVEL
FINALIST in the 2014 NEXT GENERATION INDIE BOOK AWARDS.

During her abduction and assault, Audrey begins to hear a voice. She hopes she’s not going crazy, because after what she’s experienced, that’s the most logical explanation. However, as she begins to listen to the voice, Audrey realizes that someone may be telepathically trying to help her.

Unfortunately, rescue isn’t all she needs. In order to leave behind the constant reminders, she flees to her Aunt Kate’s house in San Diego, and assumes a new identity. It works until the eighteen-year-old twin boys who live next door threaten to break through the protective walls she’s worked so hard to build.
Between Caleb going out of his way to befriend her and Justin avoiding her at all costs, Audrey doesn’t know if normalcy will ever find her again. But one thing is certain: When a familiar danger resurfaces, it’s the same voice that she turns to — a voice that is not only real, but a lot closer than she realizes.
Gripping and tastefully told, The Voice is a story of healing, trust, and courage.

***Melanie – #NerdGirlVamp’s Review***
I was lucky enough to win a copy of this a while back and it has patiently been sitting on my TBR pile and today it finally got it’s turn. Having read several other pieces by this author I expected to be good, her writing hasn’t disappointed me yet, but I had no idea it would be THIS good.The Voice takes a subject that strikes fear in the heart of most women and addresses is with such courage and grace that I immediately took to book up to my daughter and told her to read it.

The writing is powerful and moving and my heart broke as Audrey had to face what had happened to her through no fault of her own in a series of events that just didn’t seem to end.

The reactions of those around were every bit as compelling and believable as those of the main protagonist in an inspiring tale of overcoming what life throws at you, sometimes with a little help that is closer than you think.

May a “Voice” in the darkness always be there to give YOU strength.

A well earned 5 stars from me! V””V
