How do you deal with the death of nearly all you hold dear? How do you save yourself, and your one remaining child from falling into a pit of despair? And can you ever truly find life after such loss?
Eloise Montgomery isn’t sure she will survive, after her husband and oldest daughter are killed by a meth head semi driver who falls asleep at the wheel. But then, she has to survive, doesn’t she? For she still has one child left, her youngest daughter Amanda. They must both learn to survive, to put one foot in front of the other and learn to live again.
But things aren’t as they should be, in either of their lives. For now, Eloise is changed. She hears whispers, voices in the wind, leading her to the lost. Will she be able to save those who call to her? And will it destroy the faint, uneasy peace she and Amanda have found?
This is a Hollows Short Story which I received from the publisher in return for an honest review. It is a gripping short, perfect for a quick read. I looked up her work online, as I haven’t read her before, and I was pleased to see that she is quite prolific. I will be checking out her other books as soon as I get time. I do note that at Amazon there are three stories in the series featuring Eloise Montgomery. The covers say “A Hollows Short Story” for this first one, though the other two, The Three Sisters and The Burning Girl say they are “The Whispers Series” – so don’t let yourself be confused. They are all about the exploits of Eloise, so if you wish
to read them in order, it is The Whispers, then Three Sisters and finally Burning Girl.
All comments are my own thoughts though as I say, I did receive the book from the publisher.
