Meet a town and a train and a time and a boy – Jimmy Cannon. And meet his father – as strong as a Mallet locomotive – whom Jimmy simply cannot figure out! But who, in a dramatic and unexpected twist, turns out to be so much more than Jimmy ever knew. In a book that goes to the core of boyhood – its Halloween mischief, its hunting day mystery, its championship football game surprise, and its nighttime adventures – Fran Cannon Slayton brings her listeners to the breathtaking crossroads of an unforgettable West Virginia railroad town, a family that matters, and adulthood itself.

About the Author:

Fran Cannon Slayton found her inspiration for When the Whistle Blows from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Thomas and Beulah by Rita Dove and “stories my father, aunts, uncles and cousins told me about Rowlesburg, West Virginia.” She lives with her family in Charlottesville, Virginia.

From AudioFile:

Slayton's book, full of old-fashioned storytelling at its best, is further enlivened by Peter Berkrot's narration. Set in 1940s West Virginia and inspired by family stories passed down to the author, this tale offers listeners glimpses of a long-ago world in which little towns thrived, connected by the continual thrumming of trains in the background. Berkrot's voice slips gently into Southern rhythms to capture the life and times of Rowlesburg, with its Halloween pranks, teen friendships, and close family bonds. His narration is both thoughtful and lively, and his characterizations compelling. Whether giving voice to teenaged Jimmy, the town's police officer, the school football coach, or Jimmy's father, Berkrot's depictions are adept and insightful--and he doesn't miss any opportunities to highlight the material's humor. J.C.G. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
