Welcome to my stop on the Do You Whisper Back, by Kate Rigby, blog tour!
The novel, set in the 1970s, follows a young woman, Amanda, who is desperate to reconnect with her long lost, twin sister, Jo. Trying to piece together where she could be, she leaves her family home and tries to find her sister. As Amanda becomes closer to finding Jo, she soon starts experiencing distorted childhood memories and frightening experiences. Is Jo a real entity? Or a figment of her imagination? Did You Whisper Back? is a psychological novel about family secrets and a disturbing portrayal of the fragility of the mind.
This read is fast paced and easily digested. It reads like a short story, which I really liked. There wasn’t a lot of fluff within the pages; Rigby is straight to the point and doesn’t beat around the bush. I really appreciated that.
