In this eco-focused middle-grade novel, readers follow the story of twin sisters who move with their father to a small town in Alaska for a new start after the devastating loss of their mother. It’s been four months since their mother died. The twins and their father have moved from Pennsylvania to a small town in Alaska to be near extended family. Nicky and Josie find the wilderness mysterious and beautiful, and a much-needed refuge. The girls drifted apart somewhat during their transition, each dealing with grief in a different way. Now, as they settle into a new normal, they become involved in a community debate that threatens the very land they are growing to love. For the local adults, livelihoods are at stake, and tensions are high. But it’s the young people who take the lead, especially newcomers Josie and Nicky, who find a way to speak up for what they believe, reconnecting with each other and with their father in the process—and, they hope, doing their mother proud. Will their heartfelt plea keep the peace and save the trees that have existed for hundreds of years? Author Brendan Jones’s passion for Alaska shines through in this, his debut middle-grade novel. Indeed, Brendan’s day-to-day subsistence lifestyle in his own Alaskan community—a place he’s called home for decades—and his appreciation for young activists greatly inspired Whispering Alaska. The rich detail with which he describes the earth's largest intact temperate rainforest will make readers wonder whether they too can hear the trees whisper.

..". Dwayne King's life proves that fulfilling God's purpose is the highest adventure..." -Stephen Saint, author of End of the Spear ..". The advance of the Gospel in much of Alaska today is due to men like Dwayne King and others who have sacrificed to take the Good News to the ends of the earth..." -Franklin Graham, CEO of Samaritan's Purse On September 1, 1991, bush pilot Dwayne King spearheaded one of the first missionary flights into the crumbling Soviet empire. The historic mission climaxed the transformation of a wild child from upstate New York into a selfless servant. The saga continues at Kingdom Air Corps, where he's training the next generation of young missionaries to fly the Word beyond where the road ends and wilderness begins. Award-winning journalist Mark Winheld, Dwayne's friend and fellow traveler, spotlights the turning point. When the teenage hot-rodder read Jungle Pilot-the story of missionary Nate Saint, martyred in Ecuador in 1956-his heart turned from drag-racing for fun to flying for God. From that moment on he followed a higher calling, armed only with faith, humor and chutzpah-and the reflexes that had kept him from wrecking cars on the hilly roads of home. In "Open the Sky," you'll see, through Dwayne's eyes, the ravages of loneliness and alcohol in the Alaskan bush. You'll feel the courage of Russian believers surviving in the ruins of a destroyed civilization, given new hope by recent aviation freedoms. You'll sense the forces that hammered a thrill-seeking adolescent into a mature servant who lives out the words he says and believes: "There's only three things that are eternal. Only three. God, God's Word, and people."

The first time Tiffany Abernathy travels through time is in 1898, right before her parents are killed. An automobile runs their carriage off the road. Tiffany is thrown into a nearby tree, while her parents plunge to their deaths at the bottom of a ravine. As Tiffany hangs from its limbs, the tree is struck by lightning; strangely, Tiffany finds herself transported decades into the future. It wont be the last time. Although Tiffany eventually returns to 1898, in 1910, an even bigger shock comes her way. Directly following her wedding, an electric shock sends her to the year 2011. Tiffany understands what has occurred, but her great-granddaughter, Kate Dixon, does not. Suddenly, Kate finds herself transported to the year 1910. Not only that, but she is inhabiting the body of Mrs. Tiffany Abernathy Nichols. A modern science experiment has created a black hole deep beneath the surface of Portland, Maine. Time travel occurs through this black hole, but the ramifications are much more severe than body-swapping. Because of the black hole, the trajectory of Earth in 1910 has been thrown into the path of Halleys Comet and certain destruction. Will Tiffany and Kate be able to fix what has been done, or will they also die, each trapped in the body of the other?
