My review:

I loved the first book, Ring of Secrets, so I immediately started listening to this one. 

Whispers from the Shadows starts with a bang! The gripping start and the story will keep you reading long after bedtime! I loved everything about this story. It is about 30 years (could be off a few) later than the first book, and it is a continuation of the families from Ring of Secrets. Therefore, I HIGHLY recommend reading this series in order.

This has one of the sweetest romances that I have read. It is so clean and precious. Thad is a wonderful, swoon-worthy hero! The care he shows Gwyneth is amazing! This story is heartbreaking, achingly beautiful, continues with spy secrets and coding, has a lot of family drama (not exaggerated, it's a nice balance) and an engaging plot.

I highly recommend this book and series to fans of historical fiction!


Synopsis (Goodreads):

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.


  1. I'm so glad you're enjoying this series! All of these books ended up on my favorites shelf. :)

    1. Ashley, that's awesome! After listening to the first two I didn't want to continue the third book, at that moment, I switched to something lighter, with more humor ;)

  2. This one sounds even better than the first! And my library has both of them. Yay!

    1. Lark, that is awesome!!! Let me know what you think of them when you get a chance to read them :)

  3. Very exciting! I'm happy you're enjoying this series.
