    One thought on “Till Human Voices Wake Us”

    1. In Patti's More Magazine interview by Laura Sinberg , Laura writes "At its heart, the book is really about an age-old dilemma: inconvenient love." "Till Human Voices Wake Us" is more visceral. Patti writes with a tender perspicacity - interlacing the mutually prevalent threads woven throughout our human experience, regardless of our familial history or upbringing."There are moments that change everything - you know it when you are in one of them, you just don't always know how you got there. A w [...]

    2. Fabulous, compelling story of life's unexpected turns. A --must-- summer read, Ms. Davis tells a touching story in a well written and thought provoking manner. The characters in Till Human Voices Wake Us are multidimensional and make you examine how life's losses can change each us. Without being cliche, Davis shows that love can heal life's darkest moments. Great read.

    3. A deep soul searching story of Isabelle accepting her son's death, coming to terms with her newly found lesbianism and dealing with what life has in stall for her. A poignantly moving story which inspires and opens up hearts.

    4. I absolutely loved this book from beginning to end. The storyline was touching and truthful without being over-dramatic. Simply excellent. Well worth your time to read it.

    5. In TILL HUMAN VOICES WAKE US, we are provided a scope to examine the complexities of human nature: the very fabric of our existence, the frailties and vulnerabilities of the heart. The way life can and will change as swiftly as the snap of the fingers. Davis has an innate talent for detail and description. Her prose feels effortless. Real and close enough to reach out and touch. I remained captivated and awestruck at the flurry of scenes she unfolded which stirred all five senses and set the ima [...]

    6. This books is honestly the most beautiful thing I have read in a while. Its very sad, but the sadness comes from the how relatable everything the main character is going through is. I would definitely read it again and recommend it.

    7. In her grief, following the devastating loss of her only child, Isabelle slowly but surely falls in love with her sister-in-law. While the nature of this story might be taboo to some readers, I urge you to set aside all preconceptions and read this with an open heart. This is one of the very rare occasions when it was the book which found me.At the crux of the story is an unspeakable pain -- whether that of the death of a child, a spouse, a parent, or any other loved one. That pain is uniquely y [...]

    8. I felt as though the author may have attempted to tackle too many heavy subjects at once. The traumatic death of her child along with the predictable crumbling of her marriage leading to a love relationship with her sister-in-law would've sufficed for a novel with substance. Unfortunately, she felt it necessary to throw in the main character's depressing childhood along with her mother's incurable cancer, and people losing their homes to drought fires (really); there was just too much to digest. [...]

    9. Patti Davis tackles many issues in this small Kindle story, that's for sure. Along with the challenges that her characters have faced (death, neglect, divorce, betrayal), there lies within a beautiful story of love, friendship, forgiveness, and acceptance.The storyline starts with the death of a child, leading to the crumbling and divorce of the parents. That, in itself is unfortunately not unusual. What is, is that the mother and sister in law are now in love and with that, comes another series [...]

    10. This really isn't a story I 'enjoyed' reading, only because the topic is difficult, but I was glad I stayed with it. The synopsis doesn't really do it justice, and it's also a bit misleading, this story isn't really about the relationship between Isabel and Iris, it's about Isabel's relationships with all of the other characters, equally about her partner Iris, her ex-husband, her step-daughter and her mother.I found this to be a fascinating character study, and Davis has a wonderful touch with [...]

    11. Based on the very brief book description a reader could be lead to believe that this is a romance between two women. Although that is an important aspect of the story the reality is that Isabelle could have fallen in love with anyone. It just happened that Iris is the one who supports her and helps her through the trauma of the death of her son. This is really a story of grief and loss and how that rips people apart. How through that pain people are sometimes afforded a miracle that allows them [...]

    12. the story wasn't badly written, but the main character, especially her reaction to her young son's death, is flat and unbelievable. she is intended to be a sympathetic character, but instead she comes of as self-centered, vapid, and one dimensional. honestly, having known real loss moms, the character's actions don't ring true much so that in real life, they'd probably be cause for investigation. real grief is all-consuming; while the author's narrative claimed that the character feels sadness, [...]

    13. The loss of a child, the end of a marriage, the beginning of new love , the loss of a parent. The dissection of two lives as they are creating a new one. How wealth and privilege given without love can leave a hole in someone that nothing can fill even though they move on to create a life for themselves. How despite an alcoholic and often absent father a child with the unconditional love of her mother can survive other losses as she grows. A tale of normality and rejection, of loss and of comfor [...]

    14. The only way I can think to describe this book is soap opera meets inspirational quotes. I felt the entire time like the author way trying so hard to make 'lines you want to underline to inspire your life' and plots, that the actual story just didn't develop for me at all. Too many plots dropped into this book and none of them did it for me.

    15. Till Human Voices Wake Us is a compelling read. Davis tackles such sensitive subjects as death, divorce and same-sex relationships. Her writing style is fluid and full of emotional depth. dsmcknight/2013/0

    16. Beautiful story about a woman who loses her 3yr old son. Wonderfully written tale of grief, love, friendships, mother-daughter relationships. One of my new favorites.

    17. When you pick up this book get ready to cry ! It was an amazing story and I literally cried from start to finish! Very good read!

    18. This book was ok. There were many typos, words left out etc so that bothered me. I wanted to mark them with a pen and make them go back and fix the errors.

    19. This was a beautiful book. I highlighted so many passages. Will remember this story for a long, long time.
