How does a mother cope when she is forced to walk away from her three children and never see them again? That is what happened to JB’s mother, Myrtle. Eventually, rescued from her despair by tall, dark and handsome George Rowley who fell in love her, Myrtle started a new life and had seven more children. She buried the grief of losing her first children deep within and kept her pain secret. JB and her siblings were unaware of the existence of Myrtle’s first three children until after she died. Desperate to know how such a thing could happen to a devoted and caring mother, JB went on a journey to find out. What she discovered was a heartbreaking story of loss. It was a long time before JB was able to work out that her mother kept her early life and her first family secret out of misplaced guilt and shame. To redress that, JB decided to tell the whole world her mother’s secret. 'Whisper My Secret' is a proud declaration that Myrtle did nothing deserving of guilt or shame.

Book length is approximately 57 000 words.

'Mother of Ten', the sequel to 'Whisper My Secret', is now available.

Synopsis

In Whisper My Secret, J B tells her mother's true story, the story of Myrtle's secret, which only comes to light after her death when her daughters find papers hidden in an old cash tin. Growing up in Albury, NSW during the 1930s and 1940s Myrtle is a victim of a time when women were often powerless and appearances meant everything. Secrets lurked behind the veneer of respectable society. As a teenager Myrtle despises this hypocrisy and fails to appreciate the dangers of flaunting honesty. After falling pregnant to the boy next door she is trapped into a loveless marriage dominated by her mother-in-law. She tries to make the most of her situation but eventually falls victim to false accusations with tragic consequences. Ironically she is shamed into secrecy.

Mehr über den Autor

My name is JB Rowley. There are lots of things about me I won't tell you but I will tell you that I grew up in a small Australian town called Orbost in the state of Victoria. I spent my childhood chasing snakes and lizards down hollow logs, playing Hansel and Gretel in the bush with my brothers, climbing trees,searching the local rubbish tip for books to read and generally behaving like a feral child. We didn't have horses but we had sheep so I used to ride on the back of a big old ram. I also did a lot of reading,usually curled up in the hay shed. One book I remember reading as a kid was Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I was only around six when I read it and the character that I have never forgotten is the convict. He really frightened me!

These days I live in Melbourne (Australia) where,when I am not writing, I work as an English tutor and an oral storyteller. Sometimes, as a storyteller, I wear a turban and have fun dressing up in colourful clothes. I just love stories; written stories, oral stories and visual stories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Whisper My Secret 7. April 2012
Von Tim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Myrtle's story lingered in my mind long after I finished reading her story. A woman of her times; she faced so many twists, turns and tragedies in her life, and did so with a rather stoic sense of bravery and courage. It is a story that gives us the flavour of local history, demonstrates the attitudes and social mores of its times with pinpoint accuracy, allows us to feel sympathy with Myrtle, as well as understanding how such events could possibly have unfolded. It left me feeling that all of us have a real story to share from somewhere within or families; a story as compelling as that of Myrtle. Prepare to read this book in one sitting!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Seems More Fictionalised Than I Had Hoped... 20. September 2012
Von Luvamoose67 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I love biographies and memoirs; to be be honest I prefer those about regular folks, not celebrities or other famous persons. I "borrowed" this from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library. I can honestly, and sadly when I read again all the other glowing reviews, say that I feel I wasted my monthly borrowing opportunity. The story is heartwrenching, and the pain experienced comes through very clearly. The writing is good, and I enjoyed the story told. However, since the mother didn't tell her children (anyone but her second husband?) the story of her former life, and one would not think that after her death there were others left to provide all the incredibly detailed background... How did the author get so much detail? If this book were defined differently, if there were a forward (unless I completely missed it on my Kindle- and it 's possible...) describing where the author got the incredibly detailed story of the interactions her mother had as a child, young woman, young bride and devastated young mother-- perhaps I would not feel the sense of disappointment I did. I'm not suggesting it is not a worthy read, and my respect to the author for whom this touching story is her (obviously very loving and resilient mother's) history, but if you have any expectation you are reading a true memoir, you may be disappointed. ** Edit: Rather than changing my original review text, I would like you to read the comment from the author and my subsequent reply to her kind post.**

5.0 von 5 Sternen Whisper 20. August 2012
Von C. Cooper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was haunting. I cannot imagine the journey the author made to discover the history of her life...an amazing journey I am thankful she invited us to take with her...why do some reviewers take it upon themselves to re-tell the story? If you are reading reviews you are considering purchasing the book...not hoping some reviewer takes it upon him/her self to give an account of the entire book. Publish your own book, then we can read your own story and review it!

2.0 von 5 Sternen biography or fiction 5. Juni 2013
Von Royce J Stilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I couldn't tell whether or not this was a true biography or a work of fiction. It seemed to be a record of a woman's secret life prior to the second family--of which the author was a daughter. However, the writer seemed to inject her speculation, or imagination as to what her character was thinking, doing that would be impossible for an author to know without the insight of the subjects personal diary, journal or verbal recounting. None of these seemed to be available. I lost interest in the story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen whisper my secret 13. April 2012
Von Irene - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very well written book. It is hard to put down once you start, you just want to keep reading to the end. The writer makes you feel that you actually there. The story brings out many emotions while you read including sadness, anger and also laughter.
