More About the Author

"A series about a book club with each book centered around a different member? Genius!"
-- Kritter's Ramblings book review blog

Karen Wojcik Berner writes contemporary fiction with a sprinkling of the classics. She is the author "A Whisper to a Scream (The Bibliophiles: Book One)" and "Until My Soul Gets It Right (The Bibliophiles: Book Two)," the digital short, "A Bibliophile Christmas," and several flash fiction pieces. An award-winning journalist, her work has appeared in numerous magazines, newspapers and blogs, including The Chicago Tribune, Writer Unboxed, Women's Fiction Writers, and Fresh Fiction.

Unlike most series that follow one character through various adventures, the Bibliophiles is a little different. Each book club member gets the chance to "star" in his or her novel.

For example, the first, "A Whisper to a Scream," centers on Sarah, a stay-at-home mother of two, and Annie, a PR executive with fertility issues, each of whom thinks the other's life is far superior to her own. Their story is followed up in Karen's holiday digital short, "A Bibliophile Christmas." "Until My Soul Gets It Right" chronicles Catherine Elbert's journey as she bounces from coast to coast in search of her true self. In the final installment of the Bibliophiles series, "A Groovy Kind of Love," uptight computer programmer Thaddeus's life is turned upside down when he meets the much younger, free-spirited Spring.

I loved the first book of The Bibliophiles series, A Whisper to a Scream. I knew the remaining books in the series would each focus on specific members of the book club introduced in the first book, and wondered how that would work. Would the stories be chronological, happening at the same time (which seemed like it would present problems), or something else. It turned out to be something else, at least in the case of Until My Soul Gets It Right.

If you've read the first book, you'll remember Catherine as the "actress" who, if you reacted to her the same as I did, might have been a bit of an enigma, and who possibly rubbed you the wrong way at times. This book goes back to Catherine's childhood, and brings her story forward to the present. It changed my opinion of Catherine for the better. It's a story that anyone should be able to relate who has wanted to escape where they grew up, for whatever reason. Berner has a talent with prose that flows smoothly and puts the reader right where they belong, inside the character's head. Until My Soul Gets It Right is another winner.

Until My Soul Gets It Right is just as compelling as the first novel of the Bibliophiles series, A Whisper to a Scream! Karen Wojcik focuses on Catherine Elbert this time around and chronicles the different stages of her life before she joins the Classics Book Club, and after as well. The style of this novel was slightly different as it opened almost immediately in Catherine past. This method of telling her story worked for this character, but it gave Until My Soul Gets It Right a disjointed feel in relation to the series as a whole. I appreciated reading the catalysts behind many of Cat's decisions, but I would've wanted to see more of her life after joining the Classics Book Club, which only came significantly into play during the last several chapters.

Berner's characters from the first novel, Annie and Sarah, had relatable stories, but Catherine's is one that could catch the attention of a wider audience. After a bittersweet parting from her hometown at a young age, Catherine loses sight of her wants. She has a general idea of how she wants her life to play out, but her travels change her and she struggles to fit in whatever new life she makes. The outcome of Catherine's story is a big difference from that of Annie and Sarah's, and I really appreciate how Berner doesn't allow her stories to follow the exact same pattern. This excellent addition to the series will endear readers to the Bibliophiles indefinitely!

Format: Paperback
Until My Soul Gets It Right by Karen Wojcik Berner is the second book in the Bibliophiles series which follows the lives of different characters that are part of a suburban Illinois’ book club. In this interesting and engaging story, Karen created an incredibly fascinating character who was briefly introduced in A Whisper to a Scream.

Catherine Elbert is a member of the Classics Book Club. She grows up on a farm in the Midwest in Wisconsin. Catherine’s life has been one hell of a ride as her brothers picked on her while her mother blames her for every wrong. All she wanted was a way out. When she watched a travel show about Maine, she decided it was the place for her and fled to Portland, Maine and later on moved to San Diego when she into trouble.

Though part of a series, Until My Soul Gets It Right by Karen Wojcik Berner can be read as a standalone though Catherine was introduced in the earlier book. This will appeal to readers who are not familiar with the series. Karen painstakingly developed her character by capturing every aspect of her life delving deep into her past which makes it clear to the readers why she has problem fitting into her situation. But her dreams and focus take a beating as she learns her lesson.

Until My Soul Gets It Right is a story that will delight many readers. It is a compelling story that will force readers to look deep inside and search their hearts. If you loved A Whisper to a Scream, this one is not to be missed!

The second in the Bibliophile series, this book centers on Catherine from the book club, but the book starts way back in her childhood. The reader meets Catherine as a child and the book follows her story as she moves around trying to find her real self. Catherine had quite the negative childhood and quite the adventures as an adult; it was a ton of fun to follow her on her journey. It almost made me want to uproot and move!

Our heroine, Catherine Ebert, has always been "bigger" than the small Wisconsin farmtown in which she grew up - at least, in her own mind. She landed the part of "Ado Annie" in the local high school production of Oklahoma, but her straitlaced forbid her to take such an "immoral role."

She escapes to Portland, Maine, just because she saw it on TV, and later, to San Diego, but her life is based upon running from and rebelling from her parents; then upon a wealthy husband. How does Catherine sort out who SHE is, amongst all the rebellion?

The Bibliophiles is a series Ms. Berner is writing, based upon different characters who attend a suburban Illinois readers' group. What's here (in the series, so far) is slow, character growth, not a tremendous amount of external conflict or decision-making. No guns are fired (at least, not yet), nothing blows up, but there is a great deal going on under some still waters.

For myself, I enjoyed "Soul" more than "Whisper," but they are both interesting books.
