Présentation de l'éditeur

#1 BEST SELLER IN ADOPTION!

OVER 200 000 COPIES SOLD*

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.

Biographie de l'auteur

JB Rowley grew up in a small Australian town called Orbost in the state of Victoria. She spent her childhood chasing snakes and lizards down hollow logs, playing Hansel and Gretel in the bush with her brothers, climbing trees, searching the local rubbish tip for books to read and generally behaving like a feral child. To avoid her boisterous brothers she often escaped into the hayshed with a book. Stories and books played a significant part in her childhood. Favourite childhood authors included Enid Blyton, Charles Dickens and Beatrix Potter. As an adult JB has read a broad range of authors and continues to read prolifically although she now prefers audio books and ebooks. JB still lives in the state of Victoria but is now in the capital city of Melbourne where, when she is not writing, she works as an English tutor and an oral storyteller.

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.

Par Tim - Publié sur Amazon.com

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 étoiles sur 5 Seems More Fictionalised Than I Had Hoped... 20 septembre 2012
Par Luvamoose67 - Publié sur Amazon.com

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.**

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!

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.

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.
