Publisher's Summary

In the Shadow of the Moon

When Laura Truitt first sees the dilapidated plantation house, she's overcome by a sense of familiarity. Inside, the owner claims to have been waiting for years and offers an old photograph of a woman with Laura's face. Soon afterward, when a lunar eclipse inexplicably thrusts Laura back in time to Civil War Georgia, she finds herself fighting not just for her heart but for her very survival.

Whispers of Goodbye

Alone and with nothing left to fear, Catherine deClaire Reed answers her sister's desperate plea and travels to the cold comfort of her home in Reconstruction Louisiana. But Elizabeth is nowhere to be found. No one - including her husband - has seen her for days. Now Catherine must search for her sister in a place where secrets wait behind every closed door.

    "not very entertaining."

    I bought this book as a two-pack. The first one spinning the moon was okay. Very much like Outlander, just a different era. But enjoyable to listen to. Good character development. the second book in the two-pack was absolutely painful. the storyline was drab and boring the characters were very annoying and the narration was bad. I really had to force myself to finish this, holding onto hope the whole time that the ending would make my time spent listening worth it. no such luck.

    Story
    "First book great , 2nd contrived and drawn"

    I like these, upgraded first books from the author. I liked the first book better than the 2nd. The 2nd had some strengths that got lost in the prolonged drama of the story. The heroine in the 2nd was slow emotionally and intellectually to the point of annoyance. She created much of the drama in her life because of it. Sad too as story had great potential. These together are worth a credit.

    "loved the narrators"
    Would you try another book from Karen White and/or Susan Bennett and Pilar Witherspoon ?

    I could have done without the animal slaughter, this made me sick


    Any additional comments?

    Susan Bennett is one of my favorite narrators

    "Kept Me Interested"
    Any additional comments?

    This is actually two books in one, and I did enjoy them both. The first involves a story with a time travel twist that I liked. The second was a little darker and did keep me wanting to find out what happened, but sometimes feeling a little anxious. It was certainly worth the credit but not without a few minor lines repeated a little to often (a pet peeve of mine).

    "Romance with a great twist!"

    Loved the story. Not usually a romance fan, I enjoyed this book because of the mystery entwined throughout the book. Was so glad to find out the bad guy was not who the heroine led you to believe it was. You need to read the book for yourself to find out who was the "bad guy."

    Historical fiction and thrillers are my passion. Started out with James Patterson and was hooked with his historical novel about King Tut.

    "Good story"
    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Less intense version of Gone with the Wind


    Any additional comments?

    It's obvious Karen White was a fan of Gone with the Wind as many of the scenes and some of the dialog were the same. But the story was entertaining.

    "Clever Writing - Great - Unique Story"

    I really enjoyed this book. After a hour on, I start to be hesitant. I'm so glad I continued! The Author was so clever in for seeing where this story was going. I loved every character. Easy to follow. Different kind of story line for me, but I really like the way Karen White pulls a story together, and she did another greT job with this book.

    "To Many Adjectives!"
    Would you try another book from Karen White and/or Susan Bennett and Pilar Witherspoon ?

    The first book was good but half way through the second book, I was cringing because every other word had a "flowery" adjective - I believe this was one of author's first books because I have enjoyed several of her new releases.
