Review

2009 New York Book Festival Award Winner

"'Go read this book' doesn't do it the justice it deserves. Heather Hummel has written such a heartfelt and touching book. Madison Ragnar is such an intriguing character. One of those that makes you want to hug her and tell her it is going to be okay."
- Michelle Bell Just Jump Book Reviews


"Author Heather Hummel is a true talent with words! Whispers from the Heart is a lovely journey of fate, faith, and transformation. Madison, is an inspiring and truly relatable character that any woman can learn from. It's a wonderful read for a rainy day or relaxing on the beach!"
- Cari Kamm, Author Fake Perfect Me

From the Author

"I challenge readers to not only think, but to feel when they read my books. I do not sugar coat and present light, fluffy topics. WHISPERS FROM THE HEART deals with emotional abuse, trust issues, and teen suicide. These are topics that challenge emotions and thought. WHISPERS also provides hope and learning to trust and love again. I aim to not only entertain when I write, but to create an environment that invites the reader to think beyond their current belief system. Should someone have an adverse reaction to a storyline, I know it's because I struck a chord in them...I made them feel, perhaps something they didn't want to, but I made them feel. And that's a good thing." - Heather Hummel

I have to admit that this is a hard review for me to write up. I have started and re-started it numerous times over the last couple of days. There is so much I want to say and yet have to be very careful what I am saying so as not to spoil the book."Go read this book" doesn't do it the justice it deserves. Heather Hummel has wrote such a heartfelt and touching book. Madison Ragnar was such an intriguing character. One of those that made you want to hug her and tell her it is going to be okay.

I really loved that Madison's past was not delved too deeply into, just enough to let you know that there was a bad relationship and that Madison wasn't willing to put her heart into another situation where she could get hurt. I admit that I was very leery of Michael's presence and each time he showed up I kept waiting for a big bombshell. When it was finally revealed I have to honestly say I never expected it. And Phil...where in real life is a man like him? Because I am calling dibs on him! The swerve of the love story was handled so rationally. I don't know if I could have handled it that way, but I liked it.

The death of the student was handled delicately and it was heartbreaking. It showed so much strength in Madison to keep herself in control and not fall apart in front of the children in the classroom.

If you want a book that is going to pull at your heart in numerous directions, this is the book for you. I cried, I cheered for Madison to find herself, and I smiled as she learned to trust herself to love again. This is the first of a trilogy and I'm anxious to read the next book and find what Heather has in store for her readers.

Not a bad story, though it seems pointless and really doesn't go anywhere. I'd have expected a lot better writing, considering the author's credentials. If I didn't know better I'd have almost thought English wasn't her first language. The many misused words and awkward phrasings, the underuse of commas and the overuse of hyphens all combined to greatly lessen my enjoyment of the story. What bugged me the most, I think, was when people kept saying " Would Of" instead of "Would've" which is a contraction of the words "Would have", for those who don't know. Like the author of this book. Amazed this story has ten reviews with no criticism whatsoever. Some is definitely merited.

Whispers from the Heart is a wonderful read written by Heather Hummel. Heather's colorful style when cultivating characters is truly an art. The novel centers on Madison's quest to leave a broken relationship behind her, and move forward through life the best she can. She thrives in her occupation as a high school english teacher, instructing her students about expressing themselves through journaling. As a former teacher, I found Madison's relationship with her students authentic and real, and drank in the sometimes difficult topics that come along with being an educator. Romance, laughter and tears abound in this beautiful tale. Latch onto this first book in the Journals from the Heart series!

WARNING... SPOILER ALERT:

I hate to say it, but this book was actually boring. It started out good. I felt this would be a story of a woman learning to move on from past pain, learning to love again. It sort of was, but with lots and lots of boring parts in between. I felt highly disappointed. It was it hard for me to like Madison. She leads Phil on then breaks his heart, for a man everyone thought was stalking her. Even I felt creeped out by how Michael acted. It was definitely too much. I kept waiting for something bad to happen. I was highly disappointed in the way she broke things off with Phil. I felt he deserved more than that. For a woman who you're led to first believe is full or morals and deep thought, she doesn't seem like it by the end of the book. I really really didn't enjoy this.

Heather Hummel is on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Whispers From the Heart. I really enjoyed this book. It was fun, fast, and heart-warming. The main character is Madison Ragnar, a high school English teacher who is trying to forget her past. She left a bad boyfriend for a fresh start, but continually worries he is going to find her. When a man around town seems to be stalking her, her friends grow concerned. When he turns out to have a tie from Madison's past, she doesn't know how to react, or what to think of the twist of news he brings. Meanwhile, a tragic event rocks her high school class, and Madison tries her best to connect with her students while giving them an education. Along with best friend Olivia, Madison realizes the importance of living everyday to its fullest, and for letting fate works its magic.

Like I said, Whispers From the Heart is a shorter book, about 250 pages. Sometimes with shorter stories it can be easy to feel cheated out of character development or the plot, but I didn't find this to be the case. I immediately bonded with Madison, and was pulled into her world. The plot twist shocked me- definitely not what I expected, and Hummel really knows how to keep readers on their toes. It was really touching to see how Madison connected with her students as well. Overall, a solid read that I have to recommend! I can't wait for book number two from this author!
