A Still Small Voice – Book Review


366 pages, A Still Small Voice by John Reed was published by Delacorte Press in 2000. It was his debut novel.  

Alma is an orphan sent to live with her aunt. The year is 1859, which I absolutely loved. How simple life seemed to be then! There are plenty of lush country scenes in A Still Small Voice. It is a book about horses and home cures, as much as it is a romance.

We grow up with Alma, as she makes friends, meets the Cleveland’s and begins school.

Starting in the 1950’s, in a politically hostile Romania, the story is as much about finding our place in the world, especially as an immigrant, as it is about finding love. Alexander has a lovely way with words, showing his ability to describe the experience of belonging and feeling out of place. His prose is expressive and thoughtful.
