Overview

Wales between the wars, a place of poverty and a world full of anguish. Yet, there is hope. Within family, within community and most of all in the brave heart of one young girl.
Set in the lush Dulais Valley; Carrie is fated to a life of hardship and sorrow, but she grows stronger as she is forced to become a woman before her time. The hand she is dealt becomes a challenge and she refuses to surrender.

This heart wrenching "coming of age" story depicts one young woman's spiritual and emotional journey as she struggles against all odds to find her rightful place and to make a life for herself. An engaging tale played out against a tangled web of traumatic lives and balances by affirming experiences, which shape Carrie into a woman never to be forgotten.

This is Elizabeth Revill's fourth novel and is set in an area she knows intimately. Proud of her Welsh heritage and with Welsh speaking parents, Elizabeth spent much of her childhood there. She qualified in English, Speech and Drama before moving onto Drama School and embarking on a career as an actress and winning the coveted Carlton Hobbs Award from the BBC.

Publishers comments -
Although sometimes a difficult journey, Whispers on the Wind, is a story that wraps you up and carries you away. You find yourself drawn to Carrie and live almost every heartbeat along with her and when the ending comes there is such a sense of pride in her achievements, you can't help but revel in her possible future as she moves forward. Rarely has one book forced us to go through so many emotions. Elizabeth Revill has conjured a world of harsh Welsh winds and wild farmlands. Visit and learn about Carrie, you won't be sorry.
