Author Linda Whittaker interweaves this wonderful fantasy story with a modern tale of an unnamed woman who suffers a terrible head injury and slips into a coma. A victim of a dreadful assault, her mind goes into another reality that is filled with wonders and mystery. Isabella, a young village girl, embarks on a mysterious quest to the Lower Kingdom. Guided by a raven named Nightwalker, Isabella meets the king who instructs her to find a book that holds the key to the kingdom's fate. Magic, fear, and unforeseen twists and revelations are just some of the elements that elevate the intriguing facets of the story. This book takes readers to another state of perception regarding our inner strengths and our life’s journey.
I honestly enjoyed the metaphors and wisdom that this story has to offer. Whittaker’s flair for dialogue always hits the right notes, never sounding forced. Most of the cast are given a well-merited rounding out, giving each character a depth and compassion that bring about a true connection between the readers and each character. Of course the protagonist, Isabella, is the one who would evoke readers’ emotions the most. There was more depth here than I would have expected from the first few pages. I found myself drawn into the world that Whittaker created. I could picture this story as a wonderful, unique tale that would be amazing on the cinema screen, provided that it got the right director to make it happen. Simply put, Isabella and the Tale of the Unanswered Question is a must-read.
