Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Tamera Alexander and Zondervan. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
Following Olivia Aberdeen all over the plantation brings its highs and lows. You feel deeply for the way she was treated by her late husband and for the way society is treating her now. Yet, now that she is here at Belle Mead, you know things are going to work out well for her. Even though the story is quite predictable I still loved every minute of it!
From the very start, you are rooting on Mr. Ridley Cooper; a strong headed man who knows what he wants and goes for it. Once he lays eyes on Olivia you know she's in trouble. Their friendly and not so friendly banter and teasing really make the story fun, and reading how each person grows into a stronger relationship with God makes it even better.
And yet---I found myself eagerly reading for the romantic scenes I was hoping for: a deep and revealing conversation about Olivia's past marriage (didn't happen), a rescue during a dangerous situation (no rescue, and actually, any "dangerous" situation in the book is quickly dealt with little consequence)....just MORE. I wanted MORE out of their conversations. It felt like the romance piece was being ushered along to speed up Olivia's obligatory mourning period for her first husband. Therefore, weeks go by without her seeing Ridley, and when they finally interact, it isn't very exciting!
All in all, days later I am still thinking about the Belle Meade plantation and the characters. I just wish the romance had been more satisfying.
To Whisper Her name is predominantly a romance. The plot is pretty thin and predictable. Further, the character of Olivia changes substantially though the book,but I found the rationale for the change to be lacking. Similarly, some of the changes in relationships (example, Olivia and Mary) only seem to be superficially explained.
If you like Christian historical romance, you will probably really, really like this book. If you would like more substance, you may wish to consider reading something else.
Olivia is going to live with her "aunt" who was a close friend of her mother's. Olivia's husband has just been murdered for being a crook and traitor to the south. He was hardly a loving, caring husband to Olivia, but she is now paying the price for his actions. She has been rejected by Nashville society and is now on her way to Belle Meade.
When we meet Ridley Cooper, it is before the end of the war. Being from South Carolina, his family expected him to fight for the south, but Ridley's conscience wouldn't allow that. He comes across a man from the Belle Meade plantation that is hiding some of the horses from the Belle Meade Plantation. Ridley allows the man to take the horses, but is captured by Confederate soldiers as he leaves the mountain.
Olivia and Ridley meet when the carriage that Olivia is riding to the plantation is overturned. She is unhurt, but she is trapped in the carriage. Terrified of horses, her scream when one approaches her draws the attention of Ridley and they eventually become friends. Ridley has come to learn how to train horses from the man he met on the mountain. He is sworn to keep his past a secret, because if the General finds out that Ridley fought for the north, both Ridley's and the trainer's life could be in danger.
Olivia and Ridley fall in love, but he is determined to head to the Colorado Territory. He has land waiting for him and he has a set amount of time to improve the land. Olivia is just as determined to stay in Tennessee.Read more ›
