Book Review

Inside Voices – Sarah Davis

Come with me to Alaska as I join the blog tour for Inside Voices by Sarah Davis. Many thanks to Sarah, and Darkstroke, for providing me with a copy of the book, and to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to be a part of the tour.

BLURB:

The mind is a strange beast…extraordinary, unpredictable, protective.

Penny Osborn’s mind is no exception. In High School, Penny witnessed a massacre and lost her father to the same killers. She had seen it unfold before it happened, in a premonition, but could not prevent it.

A college research project at the edge of the Arctic is her chance for a new beginning. Struggling with PTSD, Penny’s therapy includes running, dogs, and guitars. Yet her fresh start is plagued by new premonitions, dark and foreboding, that coincide with a rising number of murders in the community. Her visions are vague, offering little to identify the killer.

When confronted with an orphaned polar bear cub, Penny risks everything to save its life. The deepening mystery of the murdered women, coupled with the exhaustive duties of caring for the small cub, draw her closer to her friend, Noah, and further from her sister.

Fearful for the serial killer’s next target, Penny discovers where her physical abilities can help her.

Will letting go of the past lead to healing? And can she stop the murders?

REVIEW:

Every now and then I read a book that I find difficult to review – not because I didn’t enjoy it, just because it is hard to capture my feelings and put them into words. Inside Voices is one such book, and it has actually taken me a few days to work through my emotions and write this review. On the one hand, you have the challenging themes of grief, depression and PTSD, but on the other, there is something soothing about the setting of the book. Throw in a killer on the loose, and you can see why I needed time to process.

The descriptions of the Alaskan landscape and way of life in the remote community were captivating, the warmth of the people providing a contrast to the harsh, freezing conditions that they live in. It is Penny’s relationships with her new friends, and particularly with Blue and Fjord, that make this a comforting read, in spite of the horrors of a terror attack and a murderer on the loose. In fact, for me, although these events added tension to the book, it really was the relationships and emotions that really made the book.

Inside Voices is an interesting look at how trauma can affect people in different ways, and how being in the right environment, with the right people, can soothe your soul.
