Little Voices: How Kids in Spirit Helped a Reluctant Medium Escape and Heal from Abuse (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
Never in a million years did Kiersten Parsons Hathcock—a Shark Tank–winning entrepreneur with an internationally known furniture company—think she would suddenly start channeling children in spirit at the age of thirty-six. She never expected that, while she was helping them reveal the secrets of their deaths, they would help her see dark and painful secrets buried in her own psyche.
“Kiersten’s story teaches us that narcissistic abuse and coercive and controlling relationships scramble even the deepest metaphysical intuition…by telling her first-person story in a vulnerable and raw way, Kiersten reminds us that narcissistic and abusive relationships have a unique architecture, and represent a gradual process of grooming, gaslighting, and indoctrination.” —Dr. Ramani Durvasula, Narcissism Expert, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, and Bestselling Author
“If you’re wondering if intuition is real and if it can save your life, this book is for you.” —Stephanie Arnold, Bestselling Author of 37 Seconds: Dying Revealed Heaven’s Help—A Mother’s Journey and star of Netflix’s Surviving Death docuseries
“Little Voices is a life-changing book! Not only will it make even the biggest skeptic believe in intuition, but it will also connect the dots for millions of abuse survivors.” —Kelli Ellis, Celebrity Designer, Artist, and Author | HGTV | BRAVO TV | TLC | TDN
As a skeptic and firm believer in science, Kiersten struggled with her newfound intuitive skills and the reason they were coming to light. She powered through fear to reach out to strangers and law enforcement with the messages she received. After receiving validation that what she was experiencing was real, helping families and law enforcement became a mission. It had to be—the kids were coming to her for help. One question remained: Why was this happening to her? And the answer was startling. The children were coming to help Kiersten as much as she was helping them. Before she could understand that, though, this happily married mother would have to stumble down a destructive path under a spell cast by a narcissistically abusive predator to learn to trust and use intuition to heal her childhood trauma—and escape a dangerous man she thought she loved.
While Kiersten’s late-in-life mediumship ability is extraordinary, the wounds she’d buried that led her on a toxic path is a story many can relate to. Little Voices vividly inspires everyone to explore their own patterns, uncover their hidden pain, and trust their intuition in order to rise from the ashes.

"As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have read numerous excellent self-help books and memoirs on all kinds of abuse. Rarely have I come across one in which childhood sexual abuse, marital codependent behaviors, and partner narcissistic abuse were presented in a narrative which so painfully and yet prophetically links them together. Little Voices accomplishes this and so much more. With her raw, authentic detailing of the abuses she endured along with her unorthodox gifts from the spirit world, Kiersten Parsons Hathcock's memoir reminds us that until we heal the wounds within us, tragically we are drawn to external sources of validation—some healthy and some dangerous. Perhaps what is most noteworthy of Hathcock's memoir is her unwavering commitment to accountability, integrity, and truth—with herself and with others. We are not left feeling sorry for Little Voices. We are cheering with her and rooting for her all the way."

"No one can understand what it's like to try and love a narcissist unless they've experienced it firsthand and Kiersten's book, Little Voices, is further validation of that for me. Not only was I so drawn into Kiersten's story that I read it in one sitting, but the way in which she shares her experience had me on the edge of my seat rooting for her every step of the way. Kiersten's story takes things to a level often unexplored as she teaches us how to tap into the power of our intuition and trust our gut as a way to heal from narcissistic abuse. It's not just a compelling story on how to recover from psychological and emotional abuse, but a love story on how to honor yourself in a way only you are capable of doing. Thank you for being such an inspiration, Kiersten, and showing us what we need is already inside of us. We just have to look within."
— Lisa E. Scott, Bestselling Author of three books on narcissism, including "The Path Forward"
"Little Voices was a memoir I couldn't put down. Kiersten Parsons Hathcock's story is one that every woman should read. She gives tons of examples of how she tapped into her intuition, while also showing the humanness of what can happen when we don't listen. As a psychological and emotional abuse survivor, she could have been talking about my ex and I wouldn't have known the difference. This is a book every abuse survivor would benefit from because they would see that they are not alone. Non-abuse survivors would get the insights to why victims keep going back and some of the shame the victims feel whey they go back, don't leave, or isolate from the people they love. Now, if that wasn't enough to keep a person reading, she shows you a whole other side of herself along with her special gifts. We get to see all these amazing parts of her that include being a medium and a self-taught carpenter who was on Shark Tank. Her story is a human story. It includes childhood sexual abuse, love, marriage, children, career, challenges, mistakes, downward spirals, intuitive gifts, helping others, and vulnerability. Her bravery and honesty are awe-inspiring. Life isn't always pretty, but learning and exposing the truth in the pain is essential to live an empowered life."
— Rachael Wolff, Author of "Letters from a Better Me"
"Kiersten Hatchcock, as a woman and as a writer, is filled with equal parts heart and grit. I know this after reading the book she wrote, because she is embracing life with a sweet, strong family, her thriving home-grown business, and an honest, sought-after passion for intuitive healing. All of this despite—or maybe even because of—having endured soul-crushing abuse. Twice. But not only has Kiersten risen above the odds, now she authentically shares how and why in her memoir, so that other women might learn the power of their own inner truths. It's a must read!"
— Janna Leadbetter, Founder, Breaking the Silence for Women
"You've got to read this book. I'm somebody who can usually sit and read for about ten minutes at a time. But this book...I couldn't put down! I read it in one sitting. It's that good. Kiersten takes you on her journey, but it'll feel like you're right there with her. It feels like you're sitting on your couch with your best friend while she's telling you her experience. It doesn't matter if you think of yourself as an intuitive or survivor of domestic abuse, you'll learn from this book. It's going to change the way we think of domestic violence, and it's going to change the way you relate to yourself."
— Holly Jaleski, Founder and Inventor, Grubcan
"A rich, soulful, and heartfelt journey of narcissistic abuse that mirrored my own experience so closely, at times, it took my breath away. If you are looking to gain an understanding of the dynamic played out between so many people in these relationships, Kiersten's book is a must read. Honest and vulnerable, she has helped me find my own forgiveness as to why I ended up in this cycle of abuse. Her courage in taking us through her story, gives us all courage. The love of her family gives us all an incredible example of what unconditional love looks like in action, not just words. If you are even slightly questioning the behavior of someone you love, friends, partner, or work colleague, Little Voices will undoubtedly give you some of those answers."
