Whispers on Woodsmoke is a wonderfully touching comedy/drama about life in a small, rural town safely crouched beyond the city's reach. People often remember their lives through the places they've lived. In Whispers on Woodsmoke, however, it is one special, charming house that measures time by the families who have called it home. The house becomes the narrator that tells the stories of all of the families who've shared their lives beneath its roof and between its walls. Sadness, wonder, despair, happiness and love: they've all blossomed and unfolded with the people who've said I'm home. Sitting on the edge of a gruff and rumbling moraine left over from the last ice age, Whip-Poor-Will Falls is comfortably nestled between a patchwork of interlocking farms and endless acres of Christmas tree ranches. The people are as irreplaceable as the town is itself. Symbolic of rural anywhere, Whispers on Woodsmoke talks about the life of one particular house on the very out-skirts of town, a bungalow getting dangerously close to ninety years old that has been home to more than seventeen families since it's foundation was first laid back in 1924. The house sits on a river bend on top of a small hill over-looking the town that gives it a rather unique perspective on all the comings and goings that make Whip-Poor-Will Falls such an extraordinary place.
