Whispers in the Graveyard

By (author) Theresa Breslin

“Whispers in the Graveyard” is a gripping, powerful and haunting story. Solomon is bullied by his teachers and feels let down by his parents: his father drinks too much and his mother has left him. His refuge is in the local kirkyard among ancient graves that lie in the shadow of the rowan tree, the only thing that grows there. Then workmen uproot the tree and as it decays a strange power is unleashed. Solomon hears whispers and first-grader Amy Miller dreams of a strange lady with an alluring song. Solomon finds out the kirkyard was both the site of a witch hunt and the burial place for small pox victims. Did the witch leave a curse for the miller’s descendants? Solomon must uncover the mysteries of the past and save Amy.
