Freshman Novel Receives National Independent Excellence Nod

Whispering Pines 2021 Finalist

    PALM SPRINGS, CA, July 20, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- AquaZebra Publishing is pleased to announce Carol Lansen's first novel, "Whispering Pines," has been named a National Indie Excellence Award Finalist.

A disruptive, heartbreaking, yet equally redemptive coming of age story. Whispering Pines is an astute dissection of family and friendship, reminding us that our lives are forever shaped by the events of our adolescence.

The author grew up in pastoral Wisconsin surrounded by lakes, forests and farmland, as well as extraordinary (sometimes quirky) people, many of whom influence her writing. She now lives in Southern California with her rescue dog Oliver, where she is busy working on her second novel.

Reader reviews praise Whispering Pines.

-- "…the scenery was vivid and inviting, the characters – both the group of adolescents and adults that make up their families are so authentic and nuanced they felt like old friends by the time I finished the book."
-- "Oh my goodness. I haven't had a book keep my interest like that for a very long time…"
-- "I love Bryn. Fun read - had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what happened next! Surprising end."
