About the Book

A variety of traumatic personal events, including a physical assault, a home burglary, a school shooting, the layoffs of the Great Recession, and #metoo impacted Dawn Duhamel’s life. In Whistled, she shares her story, chronicling the events that shaped her.

Living under the belief that working hard always pays off, and experiencing success that proved her theory, Duhamel was unprepared when, at the age of fifty, an anonymous, contrived whistleblower complaint was filed against her, ultimately resulting in her controversial termination. Blindsided by being fired for the first time, the ensuing self-doubt suffocated her spirit until, after twenty-four months of questioning and processing, she discovered what truly mattered, and the reasons to love herself again.

Whistled narrates a story of how Duhamel found meaning in loss, hope in resiliency, and courage in vulnerability. For anyone who has been betrayed, fired, or felt discarded, this memoir is about finding your way back to your true and best self.
