AUTHOR: JoAnn Durgin
After a decade of touring the globe, Manhattan-based classical concert pianist Annalise Redmond needs a break. What’s a Juilliard-trained musician to do when she wants to live a “normal” life for six weeks?
Weston Galloway, a former firefighter and member of an Atlanta-based construction crew, is as much into soul-winning as building the new bank in little Darling, Georgia.
Anna’s barely been kissed. Weston’s not looking for love. When these two souls collide in small-town Americana, is their time together destined only to be a precious memory or will they listen to the whispers in their heart and dare to dream of a future together?
Throw in Anna’s quirky sister and brother-in-law, Weston’s challenging coworker, spirited employees at The Darling Diner, and a cast of lively townsfolk, and you won’t want to miss this journey to Darling!
Author JoAnn Durgin excels at creating realistic, compelling heroes and heroines and their supporting casts of wonderful characters—sometimes eccentric, always intriguing. Whisper to My Heart is no exception, and I loved this story. Its appeal began as soon as I read the back cover blurb. Music has always been important to me, and the love of my life is a builder. So Whisper and I had a bond before the first page.
From the opening scene of Anna’s near-disaster, through her and Weston’s stumbling, heartfelt conversations, to the deeply satisfying ending, I was enthralled. I love the little town of Darling, Georgia, and all its inhabitants. Roz pushed her way into my heart, while others charmed their way in.
Anyone who enjoys a good read with a strong Christian message, fantastic characters, and a charming small town full of realistic, multi-layered people will love Whisper to My Heart. It easily earns five stars from me. Highly recommended.
This book was a gift and will remain part of my treasured library.
