Unspoken Fear by Hunter Morgan
The novel is a romantic suspense story. It is like a question between what God really wants us to do and what man THINKS God wants us to do. The novel made me rose questions that really set my mood for curiosity.
The “voice of God” that Alice is hearing over again, could it possibly be not God’s voice but of Satan telling her to kill the sinners? Also, I really don’t get the reason on why Noah would have his blackouts every time Alice (Azrael, The Angel of Death), would kill a sinner? Do his blackouts have something to do with Alice’s crimes? Lastly, who killed Alice? If she really is blessed by God to be Azrael, why did she experience such a gruesome death? It has been stated that another angel killed her but who sent that so- called “angel”, God or Satan?
I guess the Gibson’s with Mattie and Chester will again make a happy family. Rachel and Noah will get married again (though they never really got divorced), go to a honeymoon, maybe sold their property in Stephen Kill and move to another place to start a new life. They can still have another child to be Mallory and Mattie’s’ playmate. Then they’ll be complete and satisfied.
Another prediction is with Snowden and Delilah. They don’t have to keep their affections to each other. Delilah’s siblings would take Snowden as a new brother in the family. On the other hand, Tillie, Snowden’s mom would really love Delilah to be her daughter- in- law. The Calloways and the Swifts will be a very happy and riot- like family. They are the perfect match.
The characters’ nightmare experiences are like my own experiences when I have them. Mostly the nightmares are simply nightmares but, there are those which were signs that bad things will happen. It’s a really scary experience so I could really connect.
Another connection I had is that when I was a kid. Probably four or five years old, I’m telling things which the older ones don’t believe and they think I am just imagining. They would tell me to grow up and stop being childish. It’s like what Mallory is in this story.
The innocence of a child, portrayed by Mallory, made me realize that such innocence could really turn bad things around. The rude treatment of Rachel towards Noah changed because of Mallory’s innocent and kind- hearted nature. It made me imagined me with the same kind of innocence as Mallory have, and I smiled. However, that can never be possible. Time will always come that a child’s innocence is stripped off by experiences. Also, a broken family can also be fixed by a child’s presence. In this story, one of the reasons why Rachel hated Noah was because of the fact that he got imprisoned during the time she got pregnant. However, when Noah was released, the presence of Mallory slowly brought back the love between the two.
In this story, I also pondered that Alice’s action of crucifying Judge Ellen Hearn was not right because God had not planned it. I guess she let her feeling of being powerful get into her head that’s why she thought of doing whatever she wants when she wants it. I think she was killed by what she named “an angel”, because she, also, must pay for the sins she committed and that is, doing what God has NOT commanded her to do. All of us will have to pay for our sins but no one has the right to kill someone just because she is a lesbian and just because someone thinks God will be pleased of him doing that. In this story, though a person was blessed by God as someone powerful (like in the story), at the end of every day, God still, has the final judgment.
