Blog Tour: Inside Voices – Sarah Davis*

The mind is a strange beast…extraordinary, unpredictable,

Penny Osborn’s mind is no exception. In High School, Penny witnessed a massacre and lost her father to the same killers. She had seen it unfold before it happened, in a premonition, but could not prevent it.

A college research project at the edge of the Arctic is her chance for a new beginning. Struggling with PTSD, Penny’s therapy includes running, dogs, and guitars. Yet her fresh start is plagued by new premonitions, dark and foreboding, that coincide with a rising number of murders in the community.

Her visions are vague, offering little to identify the killer.
When confronted with an orphaned polar bear cub, Penny risks everything to save its life. The deepening mystery of the murdered women, coupled with the exhaustive duties of caring for the small cub, draw her closer to her friend, Noah, and further from her sister.

Fearful for the serial killer’s next target, Penny discovers where her physical abilities can help her.

Will letting go of the past lead to healing? And can she stop the murders?


Sarah Davis is many things…wife, mother, veterinarian, writer. An avid reader, she enjoys stories that transport her into new andexciting lands. Having read more books than she could ever count, she has considered writing a novel for ages.

It wasn’t until the idea for “Inside Voices” popped into her mind that she finally started pursuing that dream, with much encouragement from her family. She and her incredible husband share their remote home on the prairie with their three extraordinary children and one mostly human weimaraner.

My thoughts:

This was a powerful and moving portrayal of PTSD and Survivors Guilt, Penny has survived horror and tragedy and time spent out on the Alaskan ice amid the snow and polar bears seems to he helping her heal.

Making new friends and rescuing a lost bear cub bring new challenges and the chance to build a new life, far from the scene of so much heartache and loss, but new nightmares emerge.

This is an incredible book, it made me want a dog (and a bear) even more, so bad news for my husband! It is also incredibly moving and a little heartbreaking, Penny has already been through so much but more happens to her and she has to keep fighting.

The scenes with Fjord are magical, as are the nights under the stars and Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) with Noah and the sled dogs. I don’t do well with the cold so have to explore these things through books and TV, and Davis captures these moments beautifully.

This is a beautifully written, accomplished first novel, with fully realised characters and a strong sense of place. I’m interested to see what Davis does next.
