Whisper My Secret by JB Rowley

Whisper My Secret by JB Rowley

Whisper My Secret is a memoir based on a few years in the life of the author’s mother. It reads like a novel and covers when her mother got pregnant as a teenager, married, had three kids, and lost them after being deemed “unfit.” It’s really well written and every time I sat down to read I looked forward to finding out what happened next. The author indicates at the end that there’s a fair bit of imagination added since her mother always kept that part of her life a secret and the whole thing started because the author wanted to find out about those three half-siblings she never knew about. The majority is based on records and people’s memories of how things happened. It really shows what a vindictive and controlling mother-in-law can do to someone. I recommend it to all adults.
