Why Whisper? by Joanne V. Mazzotta
« on: March 06, 2013, 07:12:48 PM »
I just finished "Why Whisper?" by Joanne Mazzotta, and found it incredible. I waited to recommend it until I'd read it. I just finished it last night and recommend it to ANYONE going through grief. I kept it on my Kindle for months before I had the courage to read it.

http://www.amazon.com/Why-Whisper-A-Memoir-ebook/dp/B006LD759O/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1362622029&sr=1-1&keywords=why+whisper

The book is about Joanne's son's suicide, but it is really about a lot more than that. It discusses her son's whole life, the rest of her family, her struggles through grief, and her journey to today. It was composed from her journals.

It's amazing.

I actually know Joanne through some writer groups and Facebook. She's amazing. She has a delightful sense of humor and a genuine love of life. There's a glow about her. She's a wonderful woman. She also has a website and has been doing a lot of interviews.

Her story is well worth reading, I think.
