GR's Summary:

During her abduction and assault, Audrey begins to hear a voice. She hopes she's not going crazy, because after what she's experienced, that's the most logical explanation. However, as she begins to listen to the voice, Audrey realizes that someone may be telepathically trying to help her.

Unfortunately, rescue isn't all she needs. In order to leave behind the constant reminders, she flees to her Aunt Kate's house in San Diego, and assumes a new identity. It works until the eighteen-year-old twin boys who live next door threaten to break through the protective walls she's worked so hard to build.

Between Caleb going out of his way to befriend her and Justin avoiding her at all costs, Audrey doesn't know if normalcy will ever find her again. But one thing is certain: When a familiar danger resurfaces, it's the same voice that she turns to -- a voice that is not only real, but a lot closer than she realizes.
Gripping and tastefully told, The Voice is a story of healing, trust, and courage.

My Take on this Journey:

The Voice, is a well written novel about a very frightening subject.  The main character in this book is 17-year old Audrey.  She is a typical teenager, going out with her friends, having fun, going to school, interacting with her three brothers, living a carefree, and ordinary day to day life.  That is, until one night, when her parents go out, and she is home alone getting ready to go out with her friends, and an unexpected visitor shows up at her house.  Audrey doesn't think anything of it when her father's brother shows up looking for her parents.  Then, he proceeds to look at her, in a way that makes her stomach knot-up, (which happens quite often.)  Audrey has tried to talk to her parents in the past about things that her Uncle Bill does, and says, that make her scared, but they think she's over-reacting.  She tries to get rid of him, but he grabs her by the hair, and drags her out of the house, kicking and screaming.  He kidnap's her.  Throughout the captivity, which lasts a few months, Audrey hears a voice that helps her through her darkest days.  She doesn't know if it's a real person, her sub-conscious mind, or that she has gone crazy.  All she know's is that she needs the voice to calm her, keep her alive, and strong enough to do what's necessary to escape.  

This is the story of how Audrey regains her strength to fight back, and find hope in a life that she no longer feels she can bear to live.  I thought this book was filled with so much sadness, fear, and disconnection with the world, all understandable.  I could visualize everything as it was described by Ms. Davis.  She did a wonderful job with her writing.  The dream sequences were so frightening, and realistic, they had me riveted.  Audrey was a tortured soul.  

Throughout The Voice, you get to know the secondary characters, Kate, Caleb, and his twin brother Justin, (who all become significant in her life.)  These are all dynamic characters that are vital to the story.  The Voice is filled with twists and turns, and will keep you glued to your book till the final page.  This story is well-developed from beginning to end.  This is a must read book.  

The Voice, by Jennifer Anne Davis, is another one of those books that need to go on our school shelves.  A book that can be helpful to teenagers, and others that find themselves in a victimizing situation like Audrey.

I give this incredible novel 5 frightenly empty, lost, hopeful, 
strength-building, love-filled stars! 

5 things that Are Essential When I Write:
 By:  Jennifer Anne Davis

My iPod

I simply must have music to set the mood! 


preferably something with chocolate. My favorite is Heath bars.  I have a secret hidden stash in my office. 


or a glass of wine, depending on whether it's morning or night :-)

My writing sweater 

I know it sounds stupid, especially living is Southern California, but I'm always cold and I love wearing my long sweater!! Of course I don't wear it out of the house--I only wear it while writing. When it's on, my kids know not to bother me.

My dog 

He's a Weimaraner and sits on my feet when I work. Every single word I've written, he's been with me!!

    1. Thank You so much for your kind thoughts. It is sooo hard when you write a book review when you have to leave out so much. Especially making sure it still sounds as good as it actually is without any spoilers. I'm glad I did justice to Ms. Davis' novel. I know you will enjoy it!
      Thanks so much for following!


  2. Great review! The Voice sounds terrific. I was on the fence about whether to read it just based on the synopsis, but it sounds like there is a lot more depth to it than I first thought and I should take another look! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on The Voice.

    1. Megan,
      Believe me, there is so much more to this book than meets the eye. It is definitely worth reading!!!

      Hope you enjoy it, and Thank You so much for following.


  3. Congrats to Jennifer on the new release! Sounds fantastic! Thanks for the great review. What a pretty blue boy! My mom has a Weimaraner and he's such a big sweetie too! He's a bit small for a Weim b/c my mom got him from a rescue and he was starved and neglected the first year of his life, stunting his growth. But he's healthy and happy now and other than his size, you'd never be able to tell :)

    1. Thank You so much for the kind words about my review. Lucky for your mom's dog that she rescued him. Hopefully more people will save more animals. That is so kind hearted of her.

      Thanks for following, and Happy Reading!!!


  4. Great review. I've seen this book around and have been wanting to read it. I like when people come from a dark place to find themselves. It's beautiful and makes us appreciate each other more. It helps us to understand something that we haven't experienced.
