A WHISPER OF SMOKE
by Angela Hoke

Save $2.00

In 1960’s Kentucky, teenage Susanna loves her family, even if they are a bit eccentric. But when family secrets emerge that threaten Susanna and her siblings, it’s a glimpse behind the curtain into a darker reality — one that Susanna isn’t ready to face. Instead, she finds escape in the farm next-door and the companionship of her best friend Calvin, and for a while, it’s enough — until her feelings for Calvin grow beyond friendship as she needs more than he may be able to give. And then he’s gone, deployed to Vietnam and more out of reach than ever, and she’s left alone to face what she’s been trying so hard to avoid. 

At a time when the nation is losing its innocence, Susanna’s own innocence is falling away as she finds herself at a crossroads – she can continue to run away and risk repeating the mistakes of the past, or she can face the awful truth. And as she searches for redemption for the people she holds dear, it all boils down to a choice between fear and hope.

As his country is invaded and occupied by the Chinese army, Isaac must lead a ragtag group of survivors across three states in the depths of winter, avoiding not only the invaders, but also other dangers unleashed in a world suddenly deprived of adults and authority, to a safe haven that may not even exist.
