About the Book

Why Whisper? is a mother’s gripping account of her journey alongside grief after her 32-year-old son committed suicide. When her son took his own life, a portion of the author’s life also died with him. Joanne Mazzotta bares her soul and her skeletons to bring us an honest and insightful look at addiction, loss, hope, suicide, and the enduring power of love.

Why Whisper? faces the more arduous task of living with one’s self as suicide seizes more than one life--it takes some life from everyone around it. A poignantly well-crafted work of Mazzotta’s, this heartbreaking memoir reminds readers that healing arrives in the most unlikely times, and love, as proverbial as it may sound, still conquers all.
