Publisher's Summary

James Spencer is hardly the typical troubled youth who ends up at Whisperwood School for Boys. Instead of hating the strict schedules and tight oversight by staff, James blossoms, quickly making friends, indulging in his love of writing, and contemplating the merits of sneaking love poems to the elusive and aloof William Esher. 

The rumors about William's sexuality and opium reliance are prime gossip material amongst the third years . . . rumors that only further pique James' curiosity to uncover what William is really like beneath all that emotional armor. And, when the normally collected William stumbles in one night, shaken and ranting of ghosts, James is the only one who believes him. 

James himself has heard the nails dragging down his bedroom door and the sobs echoing in the halls at night. He knows others have, too, even if no one will admit it. The staff refuses to entertain such ridiculous tales, and punishment awaits anyone who brings it up. 

Their fervent denial and the disappearance of students only furthers James' determination to find out what secrets Whisperwood is hiding . . . especially if it prevents William and himself from becoming the next victims.

A wonderful, spooky adventure!

I absolutely LOVED this book! It had me hooked from start to finish. It's rare for me to get so invested in a book, but this one hit me in all the right spots!

Kale's performance was beautiful as always! His ghostly voices will haunt my dreams for days to come lol.

So much love!

I loved this book sooo much, so imagine my complete and utter delight when Kelley York announced it, and the follow-up, A Hymn in the Silence, were going to be made into audiobooks! I could hardly stand the wait. But oh my word, was it worth it!

Man, it was hard though, listening to this and knowing what was to come, especially with a certain character. But I just loved revisiting everyone and "seeing" things again- especially when James is first intrigued by William, and meeting Benji and Preston! This second go round let me catch things I might have missed when reading, and just gave me a greater appreciation of certain scenes.
I love James and William and getting to know them all over again, my heart almost couldn't handle it.
A Light Amongst Shadows is so much more than just a creeepy ghost story-it's a hopeful and sweetly romantic love story and I will never get enough of it. of James and William.

Kale Williams bringing this story to life was EVERYTHING! He did such an incredible job with all the voices, but especially as James. He perfectly captured these characters and their feelings and emotions. Pure perfection!
