A Whisper to a Scream by Karen Wojcik Berner

A Whisper to a Scream is the story of two women on opposite ends of the child-bearing spectrum who come to realize the grass is not necessarily greener on the other side of the fence. A vivid portrayal of contemporary marriage and its problems, the novel speaks to a longing in all of us, a yearning that might start as a vague notion, but eventually grows into an unbearable, vociferous cry.

This book is for the woman who has experienced infertility issues or the woman who has felt overwhelmed by her role as a Mom. I could personally relate to each of these women because I have experienced both situations. At times I felt those old desperate feelings of wanting a child as Annie suffered countless disappointments, and at times I belly-rolled with laughter at what Sara faced with her children. The author, Karen W. Berner, brings these characters to life so vividly that you can't help to feel a connection with both. This is a great "chic" read and one that you will not regret reading.

You can find this book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for .99, and it is lendable on Nook.


  1. Thank you so much for reviewing this book Melissa, the author was very excited to be a Piggy Pick and I will relay to her your take on her book. There are going to be more books in this series.

  2. I can't wait!!! I really want to see how Annie pulls it together after the hand she was dealt and watch as Sara continues with her new attitude!!

  3. Thanks so much for your review, Melissa. I am so glad you enjoyed it.

    I am at work on the second novel. This time, it is Classics Book Club member Catherine's story, but Annie and Sarah will be making an appearance or two.

  4. Congratulations on a great review, Karen. Thanks for taking the time to review it, Melissa. And finally, thank you Miss Piggy for supporting authors such as Karen.
