Publishers Weekly
In this second installment of the Culper Ring series, Thad Lane gathers information for the American government during the War of 1812. When Gywneth Fairchild—daughter of a British general—escapes London after witnessing her father’s murder, she finds refuge with the Lane family, whom her father had assured her were friends despite the war between their countries. Gwyn then battles a crippling despair that threatens her health and her budding feelings for Thad, who is likewise drawn to her. As the British menace Washington and Baltimore, Gwyn and Thad’s relationship must reckon with family secrets and forces both spiritual and military. White (Ring of Secrets) skillfully illustrates depression and PTSD in the traumatized Gwyn. Secondary characters shine—new readers will likely seek the first installment to acquaint themselves further. The characters’ Christian faith is artfully integrated into their personalities, words, and actions. The combination of romantic tension, spiritual contention, and wartime intrigue makes for an engrossing, entertaining read. Agent: Karen Ball, Karen Ball Publishing Services. (Aug.)
From the Publisher

"As always, Ms. White's characters are rich and deep and complex, her history is woven in expertly, and the romance and intrigue are top notch. But I think my favorite part of this particular book was the spiritual aspect. Roseanna White brings her characters realistically and powerfully to the end of themselves, until they can trust the only One who can keep them safe. There were scenes that touched me like nothing else I have read outside of God's Word itself."
?Joanne Sher, ACFW Midwest Zone Director and author of Scripture Stories, Timeless Truths

"I'm unashamedly a fan of historical romance, but Whispers from the Shadows is that and so much more. Roseanna has a great gift for storytelling and characterization."

Carole Jarvis, booksmusicandlife.blogspot.com

"This book drew me in from the first page and I could not put it down; I was up until 1 am reading and I enjoyed every single minute of it. I can tell Roseanna White really loves her characters and she allows them to show us their love for our Lord Jesus. Thad and Gwyn are amazing and I can't wait for the third book."
?Deborah Dunson

"I have a few favorite authors, and it has been my joy lately to review some of my very favorites. Roseanna White is one who's among those on the top of my list. She writes with humor, suspense, and romance so intertwined that it's difficult to know where one starts and the other leaves off."

—Anne Baxter Campbell, pewperspective.blogspot.com

"I liked Gwyneth, and her fragility and quiet spirit."
?Hayden Wand, atreeabookandabreeze.blogspot.com

"The espionage plot provides plenty of suspense, and the romance plot uncovers some beautiful truths about the purpose and nature of courtly and married love. White weaves the Culper Ring Series' previous protagonists, Bennet and Winter Lane, into Whispers from the Shadows with a deft and often humorous touch, providing continuity between the stories."
