    … The Ghost of Whispering Willow- fast-moving plot and likable characters. Suffused with warmth and love,it provides a theme that is largely missing in the world of books but sorely needed.The plot is well constructed as it is paced intelligently and maintainsthe reader’s interest. One element of the clever crafting can be foundon page 124: it is the very middle page of the book and on it the majorturn in the plot occurs. I first discovered this middle page phenomenonin the French author Pierre Loti, in his novel Pêcheur d’Islande(Iceland Fisherman). The main character’s younger brother, who had beeninjured in Viet Nam is returning to France on a hospital boat, but diesprecisely when the boat passes the Equator on the longest day of theyear, at the moment the sun dips under the horizon, at the middle of the world in the middle of the year, precisely at the middle page of thenovel. I thought it was amazing, maybe unique. But years later, I foundin Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose what is most central to the themeof the book happening on the very middle page and I have found something similar in a few other books. This is the mark of a writer and I havefound it again. Some of the most solid literature these days is beingwritten for children and teens. The Ghost of Whispering Willow joins the list.
