Blog Tour: Whisper Falls by Elizabeth Langston

Whisper Falls by Elizabeth Langston
Published Date: November 2013
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Genre: YA

The Story: While training for a mountain bike race, high-school senior Mark Lewis spots a mysterious girl dressed in odd clothing, standing behind a waterfall in the woods near his North Carolina home. When she comments on the strange machine that he rides, he suspects something isn’t right. When Susanna claims to be an indentured servant from 1796, he wonders if she's crazy. Yet he feels compelled to find out more.

Mark enters a ‘long-distance’ relationship with Susanna through the shimmering--and temperamental--barrier of Whisper Falls. Curious about her world, Mark combs through history to learn about the brutal life she's trapped in. But knowledge can be dangerous. Soon he must choose between the risk of changing history or dooming the girl he can't stop thinking about to a lifetime of misery.

My Review: This was a neat story to read!  I'm glad its part of a series, I really want to know what happens more to Mark and Susanna.  In school we're told that knowledge is power, but as Elizabeth Langston shows us, that power isn't always for the good.  For the history loving readers, you'll enjoy this book!! 

About the Author: Hello, I'm Elizabeth Langston, and I write fiction for young adults. My debut novel, Whisper Falls (Whisper Falls, #1), releases November 19, 2013.

I live in North Carolina and work in the computer industry for my day job. I have two YA daughters and one really old husband. At night, when I'm not writing, I'm watching TV (So You Think You Can Dance, The Daily Show, Castle) or reading (and that is all over the place.)
