Sunday Salon: Whale Song reviews

I haven't finished either of the two thrillers I've started reading and I am heading into my busy season. I have a few events lined up for December and had some in November too; so if you're in the Edmonton, Alberta, please be sure to check them out on my website and come visit me at one of my book signings. All 3 of my novels will be available. :)

In lieu of writing a review myself, I thought I'd share some of the wonderful reviews I have received for the novel I call "my heart book". I wrote the original first edition of Whale Song back in 2003. It took me 3.5 months to write it and have 2 people edit it--all in 3.5 months. The story was in my head for 2 years before I wrote the first word. I unleashed a tidal wave of words...and emotion.

Here are some review blurbs for WHALE SONG, a moving and uplifting story of love, loss and hope--for all ages. Although this is not a thriller like my novels Divine Intervention and The River, Whale Song does have an element of mystery.

This novel is perfect for mothers, daughters, grandmothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters and best friends--and even my male readers have enjoyed it. Whale Song will make you remember what it was like to be young. :)


"Whale Song is deep and true, a compelling story of love and family and the mysteries of the human heart. Cheryl Kaye Tardif has written a beautiful, haunting novel." -- NY Times Bestselling novelist Luanne Rice, author of Beach Girls

"Mystical and poignant...Reminiscent of youth's sweetness, Whale Song confronts the truth of that treasure's fragility, upon varying paths, with uncomplicated and graceful ease...'Bravo' to Cheryl Kaye Tardif for Whale Song." --J.M. Lavallee

"The book me and others read in the field and knew it was a sure fire, can't miss gift for those we loved for called "The Note Book" by Nicholas Sparks. "Whale Song" is not only that good... It just might be considered by some, better." -- Chase Von of The Student Operated Press

"It's completely heart wrenching...I seriously never wanted to put it down. Cheryl's use of words is amazing, like when she's talking about the killer whales or describing scenery. They just flow so easily across every page. My heart strings were being pulled the entire time and I absolutely loved it...I seriously recommend getting yourself a copy. You seriously won't be disappointed." --Breanna, a reviewer for teensreadtoo. com

"Tardif again leaves a lasting mark on her readers...Moving and irresistible." --Midwest Book Review

"Cheryl Kaye Tardif's novel, Whale Song, would be a tough act to follow for any written genre." --Fresh Fiction
