Author Laura P. Jonesabout this book: Whispers of Hope was inspired by a conversation I had with my father about the cause of death of his mother. During the conversation, I wondered what if everything my father was told a child was a lie, and he lived his entire life with this lie. This story, while fictional, allowed me to explore the "what ifs" in an extra-ordinary journey with a young boy, Elijah, who runs away from home to escape his brewing family drama following a tragic event. His experience on the street taught him many lessons, but ultimately brought him face to face with a long history of family secrets.

The message in this book is one that inspires a search for truth and builds hope for a new beginning, so the title "Whispers of Hope" felt right. On the cover of the book, the sun rises over a body of water, way off in the horizon. It signaled that new beginning. I could not resist it.

Many of the people who read this book expressed a common theme of inspiration and some even purchased additional copies to share with younger members of their families. That was my goal, but it came with challenges. One of these challenges was presenting a message that would reach across generational boundaries. This meant I had to be careful in developing the story in such a way that it would not lose its appeal to one segment or another. Another challenge was writing in the first person from the perspective of a male character and finding an authentic voice in doing so. The males, who reviewed this book before it was published, challenged me to dig deeper in expressing Elijah's emotions, an area I would have never thought to do so. I discovered that men do care about emotions. It was a valuable lesson learned in writing this book.

To my readers, it is my desire that Whispers of Hope moves you to a place where you are able to find and accept the truth about the people you love. I hope it inspires you to face your challenges with a renewed sense of appreciation and free you into becoming a better you.
