Are you ready to get lost in the alders? Then you’ve come to the right place – welcome to the home of H. A. Callum’s debut novel, Whispers in the Alders.
Released on May 26, 2017, by Blue Deco Publishing, Whispers in the Alders is a modern coming of age tale capturing the hearts of readers and the attention of reviewers. It has been described as a love story like no other, told through the heartwarming friendship between the story’s two main characters, Aubrey and Tommy. Whispers in the Alders has received the Five Star Award from Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews and has earned praise from readers of Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult contemporary fiction. Its appeal to readers across a wide audience is of no surprise. Many of us, to some extent, have had experiences similar to those of Aubrey and Tommy in our formative years.
Whispers in the Alders captures the essence of what it takes to mature from a teen to adulthood in America. Have you ever sought escape in a book? Solace in nature? Endured the torment of a bully? Struggled to find access to higher education? Whispers in the Alders addresses these social issues and more in a lyrical telling of Aubrey and Tommy’s friendship and escape from the town of Alder Ferry. It is a story of tragedy, triumph, and the unrelenting power of the human spirit’s ability to overcome adversity. It has been described by some as a prescient examination of social affairs impacting the youth and young adults of today.
