"Some things are true when whispered," Søren Kierkegaard once observed, "but
not when shouted." I think with these words the Danish philosopher was seeking
to say that as life grows louder some of its richest qualities, such as goodness
and honesty, gentleness and generosity, beauty and awe, tend to be drowned

I was standing in Sainsbury's car park in Chelmsford, Essex. The phone felt like a
lead weight in my hand. 'Tell me it's not true,' I whispered to Jo Fairley, Paula's
oldest friend. It couldn't be: I had spent three hours with her the night before
making sure she was OK. She clearly hadn't been. My head was spinning and my
first thoughts were for Tiger, my goddaughter. Michael's sister and mother had
tried so many times to get custody of her; with Paula gone, who was going to stop
them?

Realizing that they looked expectant, I said, “I'm sorry; did you ask me a question
?” Mr. Whitney grabbed my arm and pulled me toward the doors. “I need to know
how much of what was said was true,” he whispered. “Hold nothing back from me
.” From the dock, Edward paid rapt attention. I squeezed my eyes shut, just trying
to think. “The jewelry and the necklace, that's true.” “A thirty-thousand-pound
necklace!” Mr. Whitney's whis- per was incredulous. “You forgot to mention that?

Between harsh gasps, he whispered her name. His body seemed held erect by
nothing more than the wild trembling that shook it. As the trembling eased, he slid
down down until he was kneeling, face-to-face with her. Hands in her hair, he
looked at her for the longest time until, brokenly, he said, “No one's ever done
that to me before.” “Then it was a first for us both,” she whispered back. His
thumbs brushed her cheekbones, his lips caught hers. He drew her against him,
only to ease ...

Gaborn landed on a Dedicate, then sprang backward again and again, drawing
the One True Master away from Iome. The monster approached, rasping. Wisps
of darkness curled about Gaborn's ankles. His thoughts became confused. He
struggled to remain standing. “Cut the child from your lover's womb,” a voice
whispered cruelly in his mind, “for it is tainted with evil.” A vision passed before
Gaborn's eyes, in which he held the child from Iome's womb, a vile monstrosity.
He clutched ...

She whispered something too softly to be heard half a deck away but it must have
been enough to scare somebody with all the brains of a post because Major Mac
turned pale and gulped. Scottie whispered in his ear again and Major Mac found
his voice: "Men, we all volunteered when we accepted the opportunity to serve on
this expedition. We will be decorated if we survive." The men were getting restive.
Major Mac was growing more and more tongue-tied. Scottie whispered in his ...

And I say to you: I will let you slip away, Madame Bernard, with your child. It is

gun down, Madame Bernard,' Jagot called out, 'or we will all die.' 'Madre.'

That was a mortal sin in Gap Land. One of the employees had to have put the
customers in there, since the doors were kept locked otherwise — unless the
customers had doubled up when Wendy wasn't looking. But somebody was
always supposed to be looking. Glancing warily in all directions this time, I crept
quietly down the aisle toward the whispers. Yolanda's instructions were ticking off
in my head. Count the customer's items and put the corresponding number tag on
the outside ...

I saw that her nails were painted black, the polish chipped, and that she had
earbud wires dangling toward her bag. “Charlie, this is Marion. Marion, meet
Charlie,” True said, with a completely confusing, proud smile on her face.
Marion's eyes darted to my face. Her curls shivered. I think it was her way of
saying hello. Or possibly, Go away. I stared at True. “Is this . . . what I think it is?” I
asked. She turned her palms out. “What do you think it is?” “Another setup?” I
whispered, turning away ...

Because he didn't do chemotherapy like most cancer patients, he had a full head
of hair, which was brushed and styled. His hair was so long it almost brushed the
collar of his shirt. He never kept it that long. I wasn't sure why I was thinking about
that now. Despite looking frail and gaunt, he had color on his cheeks and he
looked dashing in a tux. As I got closer, his eyes grew shiny with tears. “Pumpkin,
” he whispered. “I told you your wish would come true,” I whispered back, fighting
