About the Author

Karen Wojcik Berner is the author of the Bibliophiles series, which explores the lives of fictional American suburban book club members. 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. “Until My Soul Gets It Right” is Catherine Elbert’s journey as she bounces from coast to coast in search of her true self. Karen grew up on the outskirts of Chicago. After graduating from Dominican University with degrees in English with a writing concentration and communications, she worked as a magazine editor, public relations coordinator and freelance writer.

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.

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!

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!

Catherine Elbert, dissatisfied with her small Wisconsin farming town, her family, and her circumscribed life there, leaves after high school for Portland, Maine, to spread her wings and find independence. Her mistakes and deceptions along the way, from Maine to San Diego and back to the Midwest, and her attitudes make her a main character that one may find hard to always like.

Is this a personality, interesting though she may be, that readers will dislike? Or is she heading in a direction of self-realization? The title of the book may give a hint. A character driven novel, the second in the Bibliophile series, would be excellent for book club discussions.

In this book, we get to know Catherine of the Bibliophiles. Her story is one of breaking free and finding herself. In a desperate attempt to break from from Burkesville, WI, Catherine travels from one coast to the other. On her own for the first time, she makes a life for herself and learns some important, sometimes difficult, lessons along the way. I very much enjoy Karen's writing style and touch of humor throughout. I look forward to more from her!
