Author: Patricia Hester Publisher: Self-published Genre: Fiction/Mystery/Coming of Age My price: $1.99 The protagonist in Whispers from the Ashes is Molly, a curious 12-year-old growing up in coal mining country in the 1950s. Molly is, in some ways, every preteen girl. She’s stuck in that awkward phase where half of her wants to run around and climb trees, and the other half wants to show off for the cute older boy. Whispers from the Ashes tells the story of her adolescence, and of the events that open her eyes to the struggles around her.
