"I didn't want to kill him..."

But Russell Travers had already shot one man while he attempted to rob The White's Station Bank, how many more would he have shot if Adam Donovan had not stopped him? Nevertheless, it does not take anything away from the fact that Adam killed a man, and now he has to break the news to Russell's ailing father and wayward sister.

The dilapidated state of the Travers' ranch comes as a surprise to Adam, as does the scrap of the girl who threatens him with a dirty

While Whispers in the Canyon is a romance, I was impressed as much by the thread of family that tied everything together. The Donovan clan is a big Irish family and every personality is unique and has their special place within the family dynamic.

The book is a very soft, sweet, character-driven narrative, so the pace can be a little slow, but I liked that about it. While poor Jesse is really put through the wringer (poor, poor Jesse!!!), her strength of spirit and the support of the Donovans

A different historical romance.

To me this book is an elegy to times past and the people who pioneered them. It is an elegy and a love story for the old country and the new. Deceptively simple and poetic it tells the tale of the Donovan family, in particular Adam Donovan and the love of his life, Jesse Travers.

Immigrants from Ireland, the Donovans have settled in the United States and made a good life for themselves. They are a large family filled with different characters and a great love for

I really enjoyed this book! Have you ever been to a new friend's house and fell in love with their family and wished they were yours (sorry Mom and Dad!)? That's what this book did for me. This large, close-knit family overflowed with love, humor, empathy, loyalty and more.

Author MacShane not only gives us a wonderful character-driven story based with characters to root for, but tackles difficult topics like physical and sexual abuse with a sensitive touch based on emotional reaction rather

This is a wonderful story about how one family comes to love a young woman through all of her hurt and pain caused by her brother. One man sees her for who she truly is, a loving kind soul who just wants to be loved in return.
This book will make you laugh and cry and even a little angry, but in the end it is all worth the read.

I was given this book to review by Voracious Readers.

For the most part I enjoyed this book and the characters. The writing was very detailed and descriptive.

The story itself could have been a bit shorter and it seems to end abruptly. I had to reopen the book to see if it actually ended or if my reader glitched out

I enjoyed this historical romance because of the big Irish family and their unconditional love for each other. It was a little mushy but not nauseatingly so.

An enjoyable story about love, family, sadness and hardships in the 1800's. Although I felt this story was somewhat drawn out
