Book Review: The Whispering Hallows by Lisa Unger

Loved this novella or short story collections featuring
psychic Eloise Montgomery. The first Lisa Unger novel I read was, In The Blood, and I thoroughly enjoyed her storytelling and the unfolding of the mystery
thriller. I’d love to dive into a full length Eloise Montgomery novel right
away.

I got this book from BookShout using their store credit, so it was basically free. 

Goodreads Summary: 

Lisa Unger delivers a spellbinding novella featuring reluctant psychic Eloise Montgomery.

Including a new introduction to The Hollows and a sneak peek at the upcoming thriller, Ink and Bone. 

 


Part One: The Whispers

On an ordinary day in The Hollows, a terrible accident claims the lives of Eloise Montgomery’s husband and oldest daughter and leaves Eloise in a coma. While recovering, she experiences her first psychic vision. Struggling to understand her frightening new abilities, Eloise is torn between helping her grief-stricken younger daughter move on and the work she feels compelled to do now—heed the tortured whispers of lost women and girls calling for her.


Part Two: The Burning Girl

Ten years on, Eloise is a renowned working psychic who has resigned herself to her role in The Hollows and to “The Work.” She’s discovering some disturbing things—secrets about her genealogy and the dark history of The Hollows, and that her granddaughter, nine-year-old Finley, has her own powerful gifts. Most disturbing of all, Eloise realizes that not all of the whispering voices are calling for help. Some of them are looking for trouble.

Part Three: The Three Sisters

When Finley, now nineteen, comes to live with Eloise, Eloise’s abilities transform. Her load is somehow lighter, and rather than chasing down people she needs, they are coming to her. She teams up with a detective to help a desperate father bring his daughter’s killer to justice. Meanwhile, Finley has bigger problems than she’s willing to admit. Can Eloise help her see the difference between justice and revenge—and the dark truth that nothing stays buried in The Hollows?
