Rating: 4 Cups
Sarah Bryson is already engaged to marry Giles Rutledge when she stumbles upon his real identity. After that, she does not want to be around him…a decision which might prove deadly.
Two Shadows is on the trail of a destructive white man, who is killing white settlers, then placing the blame on the Blackfeet. Falling in love with Sarah is not part of Two Shadows' plan.
Sarah is deaf, but can read lips. She is already known in the Blackfoot village, thanks to Trail Walker. He was like a father to her and had spoken with the people about her hearing loss. Sarah disappears, and Two Shadows knows he must catch Giles, who he has determined is the source of the settler deaths. Rumor has it that Sarah ran away to avoid marriage with the man, but Two Shadows suspects Giles abducted her to save his identity. When Two Shadows finds Sarah, sparks fly between them. Can they have fallen in love so fully, so fast? With danger still threatening all around them?
Whispering Sun is full of realistic characters, that draw the reader in—rather like opening a window, to jump right into the action. I was touched by the way Two Shadows attempts to hide his emotions, before opening up to admit how he really feels about Sarah. His and Sarah's hardships lead to a whirlwind adventure for two troubled hearts needing to become one. Rita Karnopp has composed both a creative and enduring tale of trials and tribulations that are, oh, too real, and leave an overwhelming impact on the reader. From betrayal, to finding love, she has written a masterpiece that is hard to put down.
