After the sudden death of her husband, a young widow begins to hear his voice at the same time she experiences a sort of amnesia about their last months.
Boy, I was really not expecting Talking to the Dead to be such a page-turner! I thought it was going to be an Anne Tyler-esque meditation on grief, loss, and moving on, and since I feared it might be a little dull, it languished on my TBR stack.
The book actually has a solid mystery at its core and some fantastic emotional pyrotechnics. Author Bonnie Grove took a lot of risks with her characters and was not afraid to take her characters to some very dark places. I’m very glad I gave this one a chance.
