When six-year-old Hannah's brutal honesty is mistaken for lying, she stops speaking. Her family, her community, and eventually the entire nation, struggle to find meaning in her silence. All she wants is to find her momma, a little peace and quiet, and maybe some pancakes.
- WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award -- Best Fiction
Hidden in protective foster care for twelve years, Hannah loses all contact with her mother and remains mute by choice. When she leaves foster care at age eighteen to search for her momma, a national debate rages over her silence. One word would put an end to the chaos... if only Hannah can find her voice.
"This book is so well written and Hannah is so compelling, her voice lingers in my mind long after I have finished reading. If Hannah's Voice doesn't end up on the bestseller's list, on every notable list... I will be shocked. I will definitely keep my eyes open for more from Robb Grindstaff!" ~ Michelle L. Johnson
"Hannah's Voice is a beautiful story, and I'm going to tell you about it, but before I do: seriously, you guys, read it. I'm not kidding. You'll be changed forever, inside... it's not a book with such strong thematic material that it will make anyone cringe, but it will be burned into your brain for eternity in such a delightful way. Touching, moving, funny, awesome. I can't say it enough: this book is revolutionary, and the best thing I've read in years." ~ Naomi Sarah

About the Author
In addition to a career as a newspaper editor, publisher, and manager, Robb Grindstaff has written fiction most of his life. The newspaper biz has taken him and his family from Phoenix, Arizona, to small towns in North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin, from seven years in Washington, D.C., to five years in Asia. Born and raised a small-town kid, he’s as comfortable in Tokyo or Tuna, Texas.
The variety of places he’s lived and visited serve as settings for the characters who invade his head.
His novels are probably best classified as contemporary southern lit, and he’s had more than a dozen short stories published in a wide array of genres. His articles on the craft of fiction writing have appeared in various writer magazines and websites, and one of his seminars was presented at the Sydney (Australia) Writers Festival. He also has taught writing courses for the Romance Writers of America, Romance Writers of Australia, and Savvy Authors.
Robb retired from the newspaper business in the summer of 2020 to write and edit fiction full time.
