New Release & Review – Whispered Prayers Of A Girl by Alex Grayson

Her whispered prayers break her…
At night, as she’s drifting off to sleep, I press my ear to the door and listen to her heart wrenching pleas to bring her father back. Her words are agony to my healing heart, but I cherish the sound of them, for that’s the only time I ever hear my beautiful daughter speak. Since her father died two years ago, she’s grown quiet and withdrawn. Catalina’s Valley is to be our new beginning, a place where my family and I can heal, but what we find there is so much more.
Scars mar his body. Pain has darkened his life…
Three years ago, I lost the two things I cherished most in the world. They were ripped from my arms in the most painful and cruel way. Since then, I’ve kept to myself, preferring to stay away from the pitying looks and the uttered rumors. Everything changed when she and her children barged into my life. It was an accident, not meant to happen, but I wonder if maybe it was.
A tortured soul meets a damaged heart…
A lonely man, a widowed woman, a carefree boy, and a broken girl… Can the four come together and help heal each other? Or will fear of the unknown and guilt of the past keep them apart?

Marie’s  Review


This book tore my heart to shreds and then slowly mended it until it was bursting. Having heard great things about Alex Grayson’s books, I threw myself into this book the minute it showed up on my reader. I am so glad I did.

Gwen is moving forward with her life after the death of her husband. Her daughter, Kelsey, is not having an easy time with her father’s death. Her son, Daniel, is grieving for both his father and for the big sister he lost due to her shutting down.

Alexander is a tortured man. Blaming himself for having lost his wife, child, and future, he is a barely functioning man. My heart ached for this man.

A chance meeting brings Gwen and Alexander together. Circumstances bring Gwen and her children into Alexander’s home. As they get to know each other and their tragedies, a connection is formed not only between Alexander and Gwen, but Alexander and Kelsey.

Reading how they move towards healing is uplifting. But it seems that with each step forward, their tragic past drags them back. When they are finally at a place where it looks like they are going to move forward, fate again brings them another struggle.

Ms. Grayson has thrown in some horses, puppies and a spitfire in Daniel to give the book more texture and tender moments.

I recommend this book with my whole mended heart. This incredible story is so brilliantly written, it will touch you in ways that are incomparable.
