The Unknown Mother was an unique, thought-provoking experience. As a musician, I always thought I knew all about sound that there is to know. I was wrong. While the book presents us with a story of a struggling vocalist, and a mysterious woman named Matrina who appears on stage to help the vocalist find her true voice, it also teaches the reader a great deal about sound, the throat chakra, the healing powers of sound, and so on. Anyone who thinks a voice is just a voice, simply has to think of musicians and their amazing voices to figure out that’s not the case. However, there’s a deeper, spiritual link Dielle Ciesco talks about in her novel. I hadn’t thought I’d learn so much before diving into this book, but I did. It’s a wonderful book, especially for musicians, vocalists, speakers and teachers. It made me understand my voice, its connection to a spiritual level, and more of its purpose and use. It’s hard to give a longer review for this book. The writing was spot on, and the pacing was surprisingly fast for an inspirational / metaphysical novel. It was thought-provoking, and had a clear message to convey. I suggest anyone who’s ever been interested in their true voice, authentic sound, and so on, give this book a shot.
