Overview

This edition includes a Reader's Guide with book club discussion questions.

“Some books you read, put down, and forget all about, but I promise you this won't be one of them.”
— Kindle Fire Department

“...fearless truthfulness...”
— Publishers Weekly

She could be your sister, best friend, wife, daughter, neighbor.

An overwhelmed stay-at-home mom whose husband is too preoccupied with work to spend time with his family. A PR executive scared to death she waited too long to have the baby she has always wanted. When they meet through a Classics Book Club, each thinks the other one’s life is so much better than her own.

But, is the grass truly greener on the other side of the fence?

A vivid portrayal of contemporary marriage and its problems, "A Whisper to a Scream" speaks to a longing in all of us, a yearning that might start as a vague notion, but eventually grows into an unbearable, vociferous cry.

Unlike most series that follow one character through various adventures, each novel in the Bibliophiles series focuses on one or two members of a suburban classics book club, revealing their personal stories while the group explores tales spun by the masters.

Editorial Reviews

The Book Dilettante - Harvee Lau
I could easily imagine I was reading non-fiction, so well drawn were the characters in the book. With fluid prose and realistic dialogue, the novel is as much a psychological study as a novel about contemporary marriage - the daily demands of raising a family, career versus children, infertility, infidelity, extended family, and hobbies outside of work and home.
Tiffany's Bookshelf - Tiffany Harkleroad
Quite an intriguing little book this is. It has been on my to read list for a month, and I read it basically in one day. It was hard to stray from it once I started, because I wanted to see what each woman was going to encounter next. I loved the two main characters of Sarah and Annie. I felt a little bit like a peeping tom, because we see these women in their most raw, real moments in life. They talk like real women. Their struggles are ones we relate to as women.
Dawn Judd
A Whisper to a Scream takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions. This tale of two women, one already a mother and one who desperately wants to become a mother, accurately depicts the raw human emotion that comes with the prospect of becoming a parent. Karen's writing is smooth and entertaining, leading the reader right to the heart of the story. Her words tell us of the true strength of the human spirit.
