When a family tragedy rips a young woman from her quiet existence, only two things give Delia any solace: steely determination, and the butcher’s son. Well, that and the ominous whispers that warned her of impending danger throughout her childhood.
Years later, violent conflicts and machinations of war shape the headstrong young woman and her far-flung soldier into people they don’t even recognize anymore. Though Delia finally finds her true self in the arms of an unconventional lover, danger is closer than ever before.
The whispers in the shadows have never been more urgent. Soon, the ties of her violent past will collide with everything she holds dear.
Readers' Favorite Book Reviews says, "Author Jason LaVelle’s distinct ability to meld fiction with truth is the definition of Stephen King’s quote: "Fiction is a lie. GREAT fiction is the truth within the lie." The story is maximum entertainment, a real page-turner, but it is also an eye-opening exposition of how love, persecution for sexual preferences, psychological abuse, desperation, war, murder and the spiritual unknown affect lives."

"Whispers in the Shadows, a supernatural thriller and completely fictional, is based on two real-life characters and events during WWII. Author Jason LaVelle’s distinct ability to meld fiction with truth is the definition of Stephen King’s quote: "Fiction is a lie. GREAT fiction is the truth within the lie." The story is maximum entertainment, a real page-turner, but it is also an eye-opening exposition of how love, persecution for sexual preferences, psychological abuse, desperation, war, murder and the spiritual unknown affect lives."
"Whispers in the Shadows is the perfect mix of character and plot driven story. Characterization, dialog, the story's main and sub-plots blend to create a top-notch read guaranteed to remain in the reader's mind for days afterwards. A small disclaimer: For readers who cannot face reality regarding sex and violence (graphic depiction), this may not be to your taste. For those, like me, who appreciate verisimilitude in all aspects of writing, and appreciate fiction mixed with real world fact and language, along with a spoonful of the supernatural... Whispers in the Shadows is a must-read."
"...offers so much to so many different audiences. Suspense, romance, light, dark, losing oneself and finding oneself again, tragedy, happiness, hope, loss, a bit of history, and even some supernatural elements all join together to make one thrilling story..."
"This is a story that says many things, not only is it a great supernatural thriller but it also shows what psychological damage abuse, desperation and war can cause to a person. It speaks to us of the beauty of love, of having the courage to follow your heart and of being true to yourself despite what others may think. It is tastefully written and the fact that the characters, Delia and Alice, were based on real people makes this book all the more interesting, even if the actual story is fiction."
"If you love biopic type stories that drag you into the life of a character and becomes a highly addictive ride you can't put down, this story is perfect. Dealing with sensitive issues in the timeline from love, murder, persecution for sexual preferences, and the role of woman in society during world war events. This is one story that will suck you in and keep you wondering what is going to happen next."
