The unlikely romance between a concert pianist and a construction worker.
After a decade of touring the globe, Manhattan-based classical concert pianist Annalise Redmond needs a break. What’s a Juilliard-trained musician to do when she wants to live a “normal” life for six weeks?
Weston Galloway, a former firefighter and member of an Atlanta-based construction crew, is as much into soul-winning as building the new bank in little Darling, Georgia.
Anna’s barely been kissed. Weston’s not looking for love. When these two souls collide in small-town Americana, is their time together destined only to be a precious memory or will they listen to the whispers in their hearts and dare to dream of a future together?
Throw in Anna’s quirky sister and brother-in-law, Weston’s challenging coworker, spirited employees at The Darling Diner, and a cast of lively townsfolk, and you won’t want to miss this journey to Darling!
Whisper to My Heart. A contemporary Christian romance celebrating love, faith, community, and family.

my point of view:
I received this book as the winner of a contest, and I am so grateful that I did! This is one of JoAnn Durgin’s stand alone novels, and believe me – it can definitely stand on it’s own! The main characters Anna and Weston are both deeply rooted in God and feel the calling to reach out to others with His message. Both Anna and Weston felt the pull of Darling, GA and know that God has brought them here for a reason, but is that reason a relationship with one another?
While Weston openly pursues a relationship with Anna, they do have a few obstacles to over come. But getting there is half the fun, right? Of course it is, and this story has a lot of fun moments! I had so many occasions where I truly laughed out loud while reading. And the memories it conjured up for me were awesome….not just childhood memories of one of my favorite TV sitcoms growing up, but terrific details of southern life and sight seeing in Atlanta. Weston has a heart of gold and is so sweet and compassionate in his relationships with everyone in the book, from children, to Anna, to the not so subtle roommate he has on this project. While he manages to share the Gospel with everyone, he still has own struggles from the past he needs to face. Anna, mean while, has led such a sheltered life, being on her own in Georgia is opening whole new worlds for her. Anna’s gentle and shy manner win’s her fans in Darling for her true spirit, not what she conjure on the piano. But as she grows into her new found freedom, she must gain the strength it will take stand up to those who think they know what’s best for her and her career.
Even though these two are the central focus of this love story, their journey to finding out if they have a chance at Happily Ever After brings so many others into their adventure in the small town of Darling, GA. This story is so full of great characters that you feel as if you are totally immersed in their lives! I enjoyed meeting all the wonderful people of Darling, and seeing how this tight knit community welcomes two strangers into their midst with a mix tough love, good southern cooking, sincere testimonies of God’s love and down home sweet iced tea! I have always been partial to small town settings, maybe because I have always lived in the city, but Daring, GA takes on a life of it’s own with this novel! I want to go and visit with everyone!
Honestly, the depth in which JoAnn goes into in creating the personalities and stories of these secondary characters is truly inspiring. I am going to miss Weston and Anna, and their quirky fun loving friends 😪 !!
