Whispers of Hope: A Journey to Success by Laura P. Jones is about Elijah who loses his mother. In the midst of the tragedy and his feuding family, he escapes and finds an adventure which changes his life and his thinking for the better. Though he finds himself in some bad situations, his mentor Mr. Henston guides him well.

The book motivates the reader to think that though life will have its bad moments, it is not that difficult to change and transform yourself. The author has written a compelling story with Elijah as a very strong character who will remain in your mind long after the book is finished. As we all know, life is full of ups and downs. Elijah's story is one such story where, unable to face the problems from his family, he runs away. The book tells us that escapism is not good. We have to learn to face the problems.

In Whispers of Hope, the author has powerful messages for the reader. The descriptions are detailed. The character of Nathaniel also makes a lasting impression. As Elijah's friend, his character is another strong one in the story. The language is simple and elegant and you can actually feel the book whispering to you softly. Will Elijah return to his family? Will he reunite with his father, become friends with him and add to his happiness? A very inspiring story about change and transformation. I enjoyed the originality of the theme.
