I love road trips. I love coming of age stories. And I love books featuring great characters you care about traversing through rich settings you can visualize.
"Calling Out Your Name" by Ned White features all of the above - and more. There's action, adventure, and even a bit of romance strewn in for good measure.
Woody Elmont is the one of the most likable and interesting characters I've come across in my reading as of late. If you're anything like me, you will feel a compulsive need to turn the pages - because you'll just have to find out what happens next as Woody travels beyond his sleepy hometown of Ogamesh, Georgia in search of his younger brother.
The author conveys a convincing Southern cadence that's always comfortable and pleasant to read - never distracting or grating, which is a trap other writers and books have fallen into. In fact, it's a pleasure to spend time with the main character and imagine the soothing sounds of his congenial country dialect.
When it's all said and done, Ned White's "Calling Out Your Name" packs quite an emotional wallop.
This is storytelling at its finest.
