Why Whisper: A Memoir by Joanne Mazzota is the heart-rending story of a mother whose 32-year-old son took his own life after a long history of alcoholism and drug abuse. Her beloved child went from naughty boy to addict long before she was able to realize the severity of his condition. Looking back, she sees her own “co-dependent” role and that her efforts to stop supporting his addiction were too little and too late. With his charm, his genuine love for his family, and the glib tongue that [...]
This book is beautiful, heartfelt, and full of raw emotion. I was crying by page 16. Joanne is my Aunt, and I am so proud to say that. Unfortunately, I've only seen her and that part of my family a handful of times, but after reading this book I felt so close to them. Especially Joanne. If you want to read a book with a beautiful story, learn about different ways people go through grief, and learn about the strength of a family, read this book. Then read it again. And again.
It's not your fault.The title says it all. The word suicide for many is a topic of "TABU." We know it's out there but hope it never touches us or a close friend. If it does, we seldom discuss it. Why? Is it because we feel fault lies with the family members, or maybe we don't want face to our own demons? When someone we know dies, our friends offer condolences and insist we call if we need anything, (the whole time hoping we won't call). I know, I went through my own demons twenty years ago and [...]
This story grabbed me from the first page and pulled me in. It's not my usual type of read but the blurb moved me so much I had to find out more. I have only just started it and I have cried and laughed in turn at the bravery of a mother who has lost her child in one of the most tragic ways known to man. What's more I feel as though I'm in her shoes as I read. That is the sign of a very good writer.I will post a lengthier review when I've finished it. Pass the Kleenex!
Because this book was so excellently written and filled, page after page, with honest and forthright emotion, it was hard for me not to become completely engrossed in it, and just as Joanne Mazzotta learned much about herself and about both life and death, I think that anyone who reads this will also take with him/her additional knowledge about what this life of ours is all about, as we all ask ourselves from time to time -- and especially in moments of profound grief and suffering -- what the p [...]
I bought this book months ago as a resource to deal with serious grief problems I was having. Since that time, I've gotten to know Joanne Mazzotta through social media and consider her a friend. She is a lovely woman with a delightful sense of humor and a deep wisdom. Joanne is an old soul. I didn't have the courage to read this book until a week ago. It sat on my Kindle, and I'd pass it by each time I selected a new book. I always thought,"Not yet." I am thankful that I finally opened it. This [...]
This book wasn't just about suicide. It helped me realize the hidden anger I have with my own mother and her failed attempt at sobriety. She passed away 7 years ago and it's time to forgive and let go and i should have done it a long time ago. A great reminder that I was powerless and now I am strong. Thank you.
