LESLIE, Mo., Aug. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Author Larry M. Lawrence continues his fiction book series
in The Whitney Chronicles 5: Echoes of the Past ($15.99, paperback, 9781662855344; $7.99, e-book, 9781662855351).
In this fifth installment of the series, Lawrence begins this suspenseful story with a disturbing nightmare followed by a mysterious phone call. Olivia, the wife of Josiah Whitney, is awakened to thoughts of a life shattering reality. Described is the appearance of an old farmhouse, long abandoned, or so it seems. It sits on the brow of a hill off the beaten path, on a little used road in the Western Piedmont region of North Carolina. When passing by the house on the highway below during evening hours, one might hear or think they hear, the sound of human sobbing coming from the old place. As the plot thickens, readers will witness how often times, memories can make an unexpected comeback during restless nights. Like waves crashing on a stormy shore, those memories force their way into the conscious mind.
When asked what inspired Lawrence to pen the topic of book 5 in his riveting series, Lawrence said he was inspired by, “Travels in the Western Piedmont and the Blue Ridge. Stories and tales from the Appalachian highlands.”
