Whispers from the Shadows

54321( 5 )

This exciting and adventurous romantic spy novel is the second book in a new series from Roseanna M. White. Whispers from the Shadows combines fascinating cloak-and-dagger secrets with a tale of love and intrigue during the War of 1812.

Treachery causes Gwyneth Fairchild’s world to crumble. The daughter of a British general, she barely saves her life by fleeing London aboard a ship to America. Her goal is to find refuge with the Lane family in Maryland, having been told by her father she could implicitly trust Winter and Bennet Lane, even though their nations are once again at war. After meeting their son, Thad, she wonders how safe she truly is when she discovers that the Lanes trade in a dangerous commodity—espionage.

Not long after Gwyneth finds refuge in his city, Thad Lane experiences the tug of love, though he fears it may blur lines of loyalty. With family playing the part of enemies and enemies proving themselves friends, a future with Gwyn is uncertain. But at this moment, with the British advancing on Washington and Baltimore, they have only their shared faith in God as a shield about them.

“Roseanne does an awesome job of intertwining history and mystery with a little love and faith! I had such a hard time putting down this book to get my work done. I just wanted to finish it! She brings the characters to life and portrays the past in a way that educates us with a bit of history. I have learned alot from her books that I did not know about history and they have made me curious!

“The Culper Spy Ring from book one is revived in this book with a somewhat different twist. Although this book is the second in a series it can be read alone. But I would certainly recommend reading the first one if you can!”

“This book is full of history, like the previous novel by this author, and can teach some of the underworld events that went on during the early days of America, on both sides. The facts are easy to understand, and the pace is fast moving.

“At first, I didn’t realize that the characters in the previous book were in this one as well. It carried on with the story, but allowed you a glimpse into what would have gone on in those early days of the United States. There is valuable lessons in this book as well. It would be a great read for teens as well as adults.”

Write A Review

“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,

“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,

“I liked Gwyneth, and her fragility and quiet spirit.”
Hayden Wand,

“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.”
