“Reviewed By K.C. Finn for Readers’ Favorite

Whispering Winds of Appalachia is a work of fiction in the literary style and in the interpersonal drama subgenre. It is best suited to adult readers owing to some explicit language usage and reference to drug use and sex. Penned by author John Ellington, readers are invited into a poignant coming-of-age story set against the beautiful backdrop of the Smoky Mountains. The plot follows the life of Chris Atwell and his best friends, Walker Davis and Brook Palmer, during a transformative year of their friendship and love. The narrative is deeply emotional, with a sense of nostalgia for the past, capturing the essence of fleeting moments and the inevitable changes life brings. The arrival of Paul Wright, a pre-medical student from Charleston, marks a turning point in their lives, and the story takes a dramatic twist as an irrevocable mistake challenges Chris’s conscience and tests their friendships.

Author John Ellington has crafted an emotionally resonant work that builds with all the slow-burning charm of a literary titan into a gorgeous exploration of interpersonal relationships and how we see ourselves in the light of the actions of ourselves and others. The author paints a highly immersive picture of the enchanting Appalachian landscape, creating a vivid and almost spiritual setting in which the characters’ lives unfold that feels like its own character in the narrative, gently overseeing them all. The development and attention to detail around Chris were especially well-achieved, with some excellent dialogue that is never overly telling but allows readers to sense what’s brewing between the lines. Readers who appreciate emotionally charged narratives and evocative settings will find this book a compelling and touching read where the characters come to feel like close personal friends by the time it is over. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Whispering Winds of Appalachia for fans of accomplished literary fiction everywhere.”
