Lauraine Snelling continues bestselling tradition with Whispers on the Wind

(August 16, 2012)
Few authors have created a legacy of literature as comprehensive and beloved as Lauraine Snelling. Her various series featuring the immigrant community of Blessing, North Dakota, are consistent, critically acclaimed fan favorites. Snelling’s most recent series, Wild West Wind, branches slightly south on the map and forward in history, offering a fresh landscape for the adventures of sharp-shooter and trick rider Cassie Lockwood.

Whispers in the Wind (Bethany House) continues Cassie’s story as she tries to find a place for herself in her father’s “valley of dreams.” Set in the Black Hills of South Dakota just after the turn of the century, Snelling’s latest novel once again explores the human struggle and its beautiful triumphs in her signature heartwarming style.

After fleeing North Dakota and the now defunct Wild West Show, Cassie Lockwood and her companions have finally found the hidden valley that her father dreamed. But to her dismay, she discovers a ranch already built on her land.

Cassie’s arrival surprises Mavis Engstrom and forces her to reveal secrets she’s kept hidden for years. Her son Ransom is suspicious of Cassie and questions the validity of her claim to the valley. But Lucas Engstrom decides from the start that he is in love with her and wants to marry her. Will Cassie be able to build a home on the Bar E Ranch and fulfill her father’s dream, or will she be forced to return to the wandering life of her past?

“Valley of Dreams is a marvelous story of journey, faith, and a God who will never give you more than you can handle.”

“The prolific Snelling incorporates period details and well-rounded, memorable characters into a lively tale that will please her many fans and attract new ones.”
