About the Author:

As a third generation Vancouverite, Valerie Rolfe Lupini fled the city to raise her family on Bowen and Vancouver islands. After the birth of her second son came the publication of her first book There Goes the Neighbourhood, followed by a decade of mothering and homeschooling. After that she wrote her second book, The Whistle, though fiction, developed after she delved into her family's colorfull homesteading history.

Review:


"This is an intriguing and well-written story that flows well when you are reading it. The cover is captivating also. The content is appropriate for this age group and the story keeps you wanting to read and never put it down. There really is not anything I didn_t like about this book. I would definitely recommend this five-star book mostly because it is a captivating story that would be a great addition to any library."
-- Lane Education Service District

"Sooner or later, most writers of fiction for children are tempted to try their hand at time travel. Though this fantasy genre has certain formulaic elements - the travel trigger, parallel plotlines, and symbiotic connections - it nevertheless allows authors to indulge their imaginations beyond the usual scope. Rarely, however, is the finished product as marvelously crafted and downright riveting as The Whistle by Valerie Rolfe Lupini. . .

"The characters in this novel are beautifully drawn. As a result, the reader can't help but care about them, celebrating their joyous times and suffering their tragedies. As for the plot, it is a cleverly crafted weaving. Threads are pulled from one plot into the other so effortlessly that by the story's end, the result is a seamless tapestry.

"This novel is a reminder of the importance of family. It shows how good people can make mistakes, and it speaks to the healing power of forgiveness. Rolfe Lupini may have written The Whistle for young readers, but I recommend it for everyone.
Highly Recommended."
-- CM Magazine
