Talking To The Dead, by Bonnie Grove / Review

Talking To The Dead
by Bonnie Grove
Twenty-something Kate Davis can’t seem to get this grieving widow thing right. She’s supposed to put on a brave face and get on with her life, right? Instead she’s camped out on her living room floor, unwashed, unkempt, and unable to sleep because her husband Kevin keeps talking to her. 
Is she losing her mind?
Kate’s attempts to find the source of the voice she hears are both humourous and humiliating, as she turns first to an “eclectically spiritual” counselor, then a shrink with a bad toupee, an exorcist, and finally group therapy. There she meets Jack, the warmhearted, unconventional pastor of a ramshackle church, and at last the voice subsides. But when she stumbles upon a secret Kevin was keeping, Kate’s fragile hold on the present threatens to implode under the weight of the past … 
and Kevin begins to shout.
Will the voice ever stop? Kate must confront her grief and find the grace to go on in this tender, 
quirky first novel about embracing life.
About the Author

Talking to the Dead is her first novel.  Grove and her pastor husband, Steve, have two children; they live in Saskatchewan.
My Review
Talking to the Dead is a gut wrenching, moving, and sometimes
(thank goodness)  humorous novel…
…the kind that leaves you totally drained, after reading it. 
Traveling along with Kate, as she deals with the sudden loss
of her husband, Kevin,
was often painful and heart breaking.
The story sucked me in like a vacuum, 
and just wouldn’t let go.  I started it one afternoon, and didn’t
put it down, until I could no longer hold my eyes open. 
I picked it up first think the next morning
and continued to read until I finished the book.
Talking to the Dead may be the best book I’ve read all year.
Thank you to the B & B Media Group, Inc. for giving
me the opportunity to review Talking to the Dead.
Thank you Bonnie Grove, for sharing your incredible talent.
