Whispers for Terra is a hopeful story of a young woman in her 30’s. Mary a Speech Pathologist, experiencing a diminished sense of purpose, spends much of her time in a set of nearby woods to help her find solace from a recent divorce and work fatigue. It’s in these woods she discovers earth spirits who recognize her ability to communicate and seek her help to deliver a message that will influence our earth’s soil and everything that comes from it. Initially reluctant Mary is emboldened by a 97 year old patient to embark on a this journey. Mary soon encounters others who have also been marked to carry the earth’s message. Engaging stories of Mary’s speech therapy clients in the rehab setting are sprinkled throughout the book.
Whispers for Terra is a story of hope, inspiration, and finding one’s path, showing the impact individual and small group actions can make. It shows the serendipitous power of events when we find courage to move beyond our fears. It affirms that we are so much more than we believe ourselves to be. Whispers for Terra weaves a tale of the life teeming in our forests, proposing that sentient life of the forest is not so far removed from our own human experience.
