Who We Were Ashton’s Story (A Novella)
It is difficult to understand the theory of a parallel existence, but two young people – Jace and Melodi – experience out-of-place memories that later prove to be strangely accurate in detail. In 1950, a young man named Qingshan moves to Jiangning in China with his parents in search of a better life. He meets a beautiful young lady named Lei-Li, but their love is forbidden due to old family traditions and cultural differences and they pay the ultimate penalty for trying to be together. Jace and Melodi meet at High School in Connecticut in the USA in 1996 and feel an immediate affiliation for each another, but their relationship is also doomed. They meet up again as adults, when Jace is a doctor and Melodi a writer, and their paths become intertwined through the words written in a diary by Lei-Li. The coincidences are hard to ignore and a tragic accident leads to a better understanding of who they really were.
Well done to two of my fabulous authors, Vivian Head and Biddy Lee, for getting a 5-Star review on their children’s book, The Wanderings of William Whiptail.
Reviewed by Edith Wairimu for Readers’ Favorite
“Written by Vivian Head and illustrated by Biddy Lee, The Wanderings of William Whiptail follows the delightful and whimsical adventures of a mouse traveling to live with his cousin. William has lived in London for years now and longs for a break from the city’s hustle and bustle. Having to scuttle through the crowds and dodge a myriad of obstacles, London is becoming too much for him. He decides to embark on the long journey to the countryside. William realizes soon enough that his heavy luggage is only weighing him down. Leaving most of his things with a small homeless mouse, he moves on. The trip takes him to beautiful and wonderful sights, and dangerous routes with menacing predators amidst opportunities of magical wishes and a chance at love.
The work is told through captivating scenes and colorful illustrations which feature images that evoke imagination. The story is full of suspense as William leaves one place to go to the next and encounters different characters. While some are friendly, one character views him as a potential meal and many times he encounters dangerous situations. William’s access to three wishes adds to the suspense as anticipation grows in trying to find out how he will utilize them. In some ways, William is imperfect, sometimes prone to making up good tales. Different situations in the book also reveal his opinions of various characters. This makes him authentic and realistic. The Wanderings of William Whiptail is a captivating story whose twists make it even more entertaining.”
Even though William Whiptail is a children’s book, I can honestly say that even adults love it.
