In Whisper My Secret, J B tells her mother's true story, the story of Myrtle's secret, which only comes to light after her death when her daughters find papers hidden in an old cash tin. Growing up in Albury, NSW during the 1930s and 1940s Myrtle is a victim of a time when women were often powerless and appearances meant everything. Secrets lurked behind the veneer of respectable society. As a teenager Myrtle despises this hypocrisy and fails to appreciate the dangers of flaunting honesty. After falling pregnant to the boy next door she is trapped into a loveless marriage dominated by her mother-in-law. She tries to make the most of her situation but eventually falls victim to false accusations with tragic consequences. Ironically she is shamed into secrecy.
