With the loss of her father, Jessamyne Clayborne finds herself without any family, other than her estranged brother Robert, who has long since sought his fortune elsewhere. Though nervous, Jessamyne takes passage on the next ship to Australia, hoping to reunite with Robert in the untamed Outback, the wildest of lands.
But before landfall, a horrific storm sweeps her from the ship, and Jessamyne is left for dead. When the McKade family finds her and nurses her back to health, Jessamyne is befriended by Brock, their handsome son. In time, Robert is located and she is reunited with her longlost brother.
Her reunion with Robert is a bitter mixture of disappointment and dread as she witnesses the unnerving lapses in his character and receives a chilling reception from his wife, Olivia. As she uncovers layer upon layer of intrigue and deceit, Jessamyne soon finds that she must make the heartbreaking decision between her only remaining family and true love.
Set in the wilds of colonial Australia, Midnight Whispers is an extraordinary new novel by Carol Warburton—filled with unforgettable characters, compelling dialogue, fast-paced action, and the faith of a strong woman who must follow her heart at any cost. [from publisher's website]
