In the summer of 1844, Tom Lyman flees to Bonaventure, a transcendentalist
farming cooperative tucked away in eastern Connecticut, to hide from his
past. There Lyman must adjust to a new life among idealists, under the
fatherly eye of the group’s founder, David Grosvenor. When he
isn’t ducking work or the questions of the eccentric residents, Lyman
occupies himself by courting Grosvenor’s daughter Minerva.

But Bonaventure isn’t as utopian as it seems. One by one,
Lyman’s secrets begin to catch up with him, and Bonaventure has a few
secrets of its own. Why did the farm have an ominous reputation long before
Grosvenor bought it? What caused the previous tenants to vanish? And who is
playing the violin in the basement? Time is running out, and Lyman must
discover the truth before he’s driven mad by the whispering through
the walls.

A Season of Whispers is Jackson Kuhl’s debut novel of Gothic mystery,
transcendentalist utopianism, and antediluvian hunger.

 

Review

I liked the dark moments, those appealed to me and I think they were well done. As were the surprises.
I enjoyed the characters and the growth they showed throughout the novel.
Overall pacing was great. I felt like it really kept pace the entire time and I never felt like it dragged.
It’s a great read that kept me as the reader engrossed.
