WHISPERS IN THE CANYON: Quotes from Reviewers
I stayed up all night and this morning to read this whole take in one go… If they make it a series [or] trilogy though, count me in. This is a full length novel, my favorite kind. No short story here.
from Heidi V:
The characters are wonderful with deeply woven backgrounds and personalities. I loved how she gave every member of the large Irish family key parts in the hero’s and heroine’s story arcs, and I fell in love with the hero’s two brothers, Bryan and Daniel. This story shows the harsh reality of what abuse victims and their loved ones suffer without going into the dark details…
from Jessica Robinson:
Man, what a ride. That was a fantastic story of highs and lows. I loved getting to know the Donovan family and really loved reading Adam and Jesse’s story. I wasn’t expecting it to end the way it did, but that really just makes me hope there will be other stories featuring this family.
There were parts of this story that were really well written and had brought tears to my eyes. Characters experienced real trauma and their continued fight to live despite the barriers they faced was touching.
I absolutely adored the female friendships in this book! In a lot of romances, women are pitted against each other as rivals, but there’s so much support and understanding in these relationships.
It is not just a romance but a story of deep enduring love that is tested by doubts and fears… The Donovans are a loving, caring family. I hope there will be future books about them.
from Victoria Gale:
Absolutely breathtaking. A fabulous story of human struggle and how love can help us heal from life’s deepest troubles. I felt every range of emotion reading this book, love, joy, hope, grief, anger. I felt a part of the family and felt myself missing them when the book was finished. Utterly perfect and definitely a book I will be revisiting again and again.
from Mary Higginson:
To me this book is an elegy to times past and the people who pioneered them. It is an elegy and a love story for the old country and the new. Deceptively simple and poetic… The narrative proceeds at a slow burn which suits the tone of the story, echoing the way of life of the characters. All the characters are well drawn and engaging. The sense of Irish mysticism, the joys and sorrows of them all is well played out.
This book will make you laugh and cry and even a little angry, but in the end it is all worth the read.
