An ancient forest, a dark night, a strange woman—and whispers.
What is going on in this eerie Irish forest? Ten-year-old Declan has to find out. His brother is missing and only he can solve the mystery. But why him? He doesn’t even like his always-yelling brother who his sister says was eaten by wolves. But there are no wolves in Ireland.
Then a witch-like woman tells him the two of them have to go into the spooky woods to save his brother. But from what? The strange trees only whisper the answer and he must go and discover what they are trying to tell him. But he will learn much more than he ever dreamed.
Whispers of Trees is a fun, page-turning thriller hinting of myth that delivers a multicultural adventure.

I Wanted More!
Ireland. Home of leprechauns, fairies, and magic. What better place for ancient trees who talk?
As a young reader, I would have fallen in love with this story of a young boy caught in the midst of a troubled family. Reveled in the adventure deep into the lush green forest even with a million eyes following me. Shivered at the strange presence I sensed lurking all around me. Drawn to the mysterious woman living within the forest’s shadow. Afraid of what might have happened to my younger brother.
As a mature reader, I wanted more. And that’s what makes a great story!
