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.
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.
**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **
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!
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.
