Eloise Montgomery discovers her amazing gift in the wake of tragedy in this first of three captivating e-novellas 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…
Eloise Montgomery considered herself quite ordinary before the accident. She was a devoted wife and mother of two daughters. A routine car trip with the family ends in tragedy. Eloise awakens in the hospital after the accident to learn that her husband and one of her daughters died. Now she must deal with her surviving daughter’s guilt as well as her new found “gift” — psychic whispers from the lost.
The Whispers is a fast-read novella that provides the backstory for Eloise Montgomery. A devastating car accident leaves Eloise with the special ability to hear “whispers” of the lost. She learns to heed these whispers and save lives or deal with the consequences of inaction. Quite a bit of The Whispers deals with the Montgomery family dynamic and the changes wrought by the accident. It was interesting to read about Eloise and the development of her paranormal gifts. This short story packs a punch with family drama, tragedy, survivor guilt, paranormal aspects, and an underlying sense of mystery-suspense. If you’re looking for a quick mystery-suspense read or just something a little different, then you may want to grab a digital copy of The Whispers to read. Eloise’s story will continue with more of The Whispers series with The Burning Girl and The Three Sisters.
