Is it ever too late to start again? 35-year-old Miriam hasn't left her house in three years, and cannot raise her voice above a whisper. But today she has had enough, and is finally ready to rejoin the outside world. Maybe it's time to stop living in the shadow of her abusive dead mother? Meanwhile, timid psychotherapist Ralph has made the mistake of opening a closet door, only to discover that his wife Sadie doesn't love him. Yet everyone else seems to have known all about their unhappy marriage - from her tweets. He decides to run away. But where can he go? Each of them is hungry to make sense of the chaos in their lives. Miriam and Ralph's chance meeting in a local wood marks the beginning of a quirky and mutually supportive friendship. With Ralph's gentle help, Miriam begins to piece together her own truth. Because sometimes, the world can seem too much for just one person ...Wise, elegant and full of tender humour, Whispers Through a Megaphone explores how we live in our often deafening world - when all we need to connect with ourselves and others is a bit of silence. 'In an over-connected world, a crisp, beguiling voice observes chaos - and conjures miracles. Elliott is an inspired observer - fresh, wry and true.' Liz Jensen, author of The Ninth Life of Louis Drax
