June 1945 in Amber Leaf, Minnesota – Jo Bremley is falling in love, but desperately resists it. How could she not? Tryg Howland was responsible for her beloved husband’s untimely death. Now all she wants is to escape Amber Leaf and its painful memories, but that takes money she doesn’t have.
Tryg may be a war hero and a successful young attorney, but what good does it do? After the role he played in the death of his best friend, peace is a gift he can’t unwrap, and hiring Jo didn’t help matters. Her presence constantly reminds him of the horrid accident that can never be undone.
But when thugs assault an old man, leaving him lying in the bushes battered, bruised, and unconscious, Jo partners with Tryg to help the recovering man regain his dignity. As she does, her feelings for Tryg grow until she is forced to acknowledge a love she fought so hard against-a love that betrays her husband’s memory and should never be.
A Whisper on the Wind is a powerful drama that carries the reader into the hearts and souls of unforgettable characters and the suffering they endure as they struggle against unexpected and redemptive love.
