Our Review: Whispered Prayers of a Gril by Alex Grayson

by - 11:04 AM

Highly emotional read filled with hope!


A tortured soul meets a damaged family…
A lonely man, a widowed woman, a carefree boy, and a broken girl… Can the four come together and help heal each other? Or will fear of the unknown and guilt about the past keep them apart?

Her whispered prayers break her...
At night, as she’s drifting off to sleep, I press my ear to the door and listen to her heart-wrenching pleas. Her words are agony to my healing heart, but I cherish the sound of them, for that’s the only time I ever hear my beautiful daughter speak. Since her father died two years ago, she’s grown quiet and withdrawn. Cat’s Valley was to be our new beginning, a place where my family and I can heal, but what we find there is so much more.

Scars mar his body. Pain has left him in pieces…
Four years ago, I lost the two things I cherished most in the world. They were ripped from my arms in the most painful and cruel way. Since then, I’ve kept to myself, preferring to stay away from the pitying looks and murmured rumors. Everything changed when she and her children barged into my life. It was an accident, and I don’t deserve them, but now that they’re here, I’m not sure I can let them go.

Our Opinion:

I had been looking for an intensely emotional read, something that would pull me in and drag me under.  I found that and more in Whispered Prayers of a Girl by Alex Grayson.

Whispered Prayers of a Girl was an amazing tale and I was unable, or maybe unwilling is a better term, to put it down.  Alex Grayson quickly grabbed my attention with the heartbreak of two families.  How they would move on...how they would heal...

This is a contemporary romance novel that gives the reader what they expect...romance.  But I would have to honestly say my attention was drawn to Alexander and the relationships he was building with Gwen's kids.  I think that was truly what got me and made this one of the best reads of the year for me.

The heat between Gwen and Alex is nothing to balk at either...two love starved souls...not realizing they still crave another person to love them, to care for them.  That was both heartbreaking and yet gives the reader immense hope, totally rounding out this story.

I have read a few other novels by Alex Grayson and I have never been disappointed.  I always get a quality read, complete with hot romance and usually a good dose of emotion.

Whispered Prayers of a Girl is a standalone novel, told in alternating first person.  Took me about 4-5 hours of reading time.

I am giving Whispered Prayers of a Girl 5 stars.
