My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

Whispers of Trees is about a dysfunctional family in which the dad and one of the boys are always loud and angry. Declan is calmer than his younger brother, Colin, and, because of the way they act and they way they treat him, he would rather they were dead.

When the family visits Ireland, Colin gets lost in a forest. As he searches for his younger brother, Declan learns to listen to the trees. Not only does he find Colin, but the whole family changes with this adventure.

Whispers of Trees is a great story for children, especially if they enjoy suspense.
