"Whispers in the Branches" is a tale about a girl from Ohio, Abby, searching for information about her family. Abbey goes to Georgia to live with her Aunt Ruby to find out more about her family. However, Aunt Ruby and other relatives are uncooperative in providing the information. It also is the story of old friends coming back together.
I really liked how some characters were devoted to God. It sends a great message. This book shows how to turn to God, trust Him, and turn to Him. I loved all of the twists and surprises in the story. That makes reading much more interesting.
I would recommend this book. It was very interesting. I rated it a 4 out of 5 stars.
I received a free copy of this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
One of my favorite characters in this book is Greg her ex-boyfriend. He is missing Abby and doesn’t know what to do about it. Since they broke up he has built a relationship with God, and wants to do His will. Another character in the story I like is Will. Will also has a strong relationship with God and wants the same for Abby. Abby begins to like Will, but starts noticing that he’s different. Will Abby uncover the mystery her Aunt Ruby wants to stay hidden? Is leaving everything you know and going to a family you don’t know the best plan? Can God draw Abby away from ghosts and to himself?
It was interesting to read a book where someone was researching their family tree and trying to discover the past. Abby had done similar things with her mother, and learned to research alone once she was gone. I enjoyed Abby’s passion for the past, and agree that everyone deserves a name. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys history and a ghost or two. I received a copy of this book for my honest opinion from Elk Lake Publishing and TBCN in exchange for my honest opinion., All opinions expressed are my own.

I found this book to be fresh and unique
Thank you to book fun.org for this Book. My opinion is
This is the first book I ever won in a Giveaway, and I was extremely excited because many religious books don't have ghost hunting or genealogy as themes. However, I found myself disenchanted with the book the more I read. Half way through the book I debated to stop reading because up to that point the book is very slow paced and the main female characters, Abby and Ruby, seem too prickly of characters. It's clear they're extremely traumatized from past events in their lives, but they use these as excuses to be conceited, rude, or have pity on themselves most of the time to truly care for. If not for the curiosity in reading what happens to ex-boyfriend, Greg, and stand in landowner and local dream boat, Will, I probably would have stopped. I'm glad I read more because that's when the book started getting livelier. Still these chapters were still too slow paced and the ending seemed anticlimactic. This book reminds me of those weekend movies that people have never heard of but give a chance because they sound interesting and have free time. At the end, you either feel like it was time well spent, or it was something to do with your time. When the book was done for me I was one of the latter mentioned; I had hoped to enjoy this book more than I did.
