Publisher's Summary

When Claire Parker left Sanctuary, West Virginia, she thought it was for good. But now she’s back, reeling from an ugly divorce. Readjusting to small-town life is harder than Claire expected, so she’s surprised, and grateful, to find companionship in Willow, an abused Thoroughbred mare. Willow is Claire’s "whisper horse", and they share a special, rare bond. Except Willow isn’t the only one helping Claire heal; Willow’s ruggedly handsome veterinarian, Dr. Tim Arbuckle, is sympathetic…and secretive.

Devastated by his wife’s death, Tim thought he’d never find love again. The stoic, sexy doctor was sure he’d left his heart behind when he came to Sanctuary. But Claire stirs up the kinds of emotions he thought he’d buried long ago. For the first time, the doctor can see past his grief…until Willow falls gravely ill. Tim and Claire must save Willow’s life and, surrounded by the majestic mountains of West Virginia, believe in a love so encompassing, so intimately intense, their lives will never be the same again.

    "I thought I liked Nancy Herkness' books, but..."

    I LOVE THEM after listening to all three of the Whisper Horse novels. I have this dream of moving to a small town, living the simple life, becoming involved in the simple lives of animals and now I can with these books. it's very rare (never happens) that I miss a set of characters so much that I relisten to the books, just so I can return to the places Nancy describes, the world her heroins live in, and the strong and abiding love of the heroes she has imagined. when I consider which are my favorites, I would say Take Me home is at the top, with the place I belong second and country roads in third, just because after reading take me home, I was none too interested in what happened with Paul the lawyer, and certainly didn't think to question anything about Julia Castillo. I also think the whisper horses themselves in books 1 & 3 are more interesting than 2. all in all, I'd say read them all!!

    "Sweet romance novel? "

    A diversion from the deep and dark thrillers and mysteries I have been listening to however a bit too sweet. I did find it rather bold the use of the word "cock" frequently in this book! Yes, of course there was sexual activity in the story, but I thought that choice of word was a bit pornographic in what I thought was more of a sweet romance type story.

    "Loved this book and performance!"

    As I thought this book would have more horse content I thought I would be disappointed. The story and passion in which it was performed was anything but disappointing. Even with the the horse "Willow" only making a small portion of appearances. The power that equines have to heal not just one individual but an entire family was, by the end of the story, felt and understood. Anyone who listens will either seek out or relate to the power of a horse and the energy bestow.

    "Predictable"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really....ok story but very predictable...


    What could Nancy Herkness have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    A little creativity


    What about Shannon McManus’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was very good. The only reason I stuck it out


    Did Take Me Home inspire you to do anything?
