Ever wonder how many of us have changed careers for the promise of a better lifestyle and salary? I wonder how many women leave those decisions entirely to the man in their life. Janey Markham let Isaac find a new job, a cheap house in a good street and barely questioned their luck or good fortune. That is, before they moved.
Life was not better after they moved, if anything it was worse. Isaac was putting in longer hours for his new boss which was the exact opposite to that expected from this new job. But the unanswered question was; Is Isaac really at work?
Janey is sure Isaac is not being open with her. She also finds herself on the outside of the local clique of mothers in their street and is surprised, when introducing Isaac to one of her new found acquaintances, to notice that Isaac acts as if it is not their first meeting. Furthermore her wardrobe and lifestyle does not match the others who spend way over Janey’s budget on one item. To cap off Janey’s worries is the deathbed secret her mother left her with.
When I began reading Little Whispers I found the writing style difficult to read. However, as the book progressed so did the writing; or maybe my concentration improved. Whatever the case, I found myself being drawn into the story and wondering what the next chapter would bring. And the ending ensured that while Little Whispers was my first Kim Slater read it will not be my last.
