Whispers Through Time by Rosetta Diane Hoessli


If you listen, time will speak.

 About the Book:  The only man Sierra Masters has ever loved appears with a proposition that could alter her future. She turns him down, but then after experiencing a foretelling dream, decides to take a risk in order to uncover the truth.

          Hunter Davenport realizes the evidence he’s shared with Sierra could indeed destroy her – but it could free her as well. The decision is yanked from her hands when the past and present collide through a historical portal on sacred Native American land. Will she take the jgift that is offered? And will Hunter do what he didn’t do twelve years earlier – stand by her?

In the end, Sierra launches a journey that will change her life forever.

 Our Review: Whispers Through Time takes the reader on a whirlwind adventure, traveling from present day, to the late 1800’s and the massacre at Wounded Knee, then to the mid-1970’s and the infamous standoff at the Oglala Sioux reservation. It is powerful, thought provoking, and unfailingly realistic. As an added treat, the author’s talent for description whether it be the location[s], foods, people, or speech patterns feels effortless. The characters—and the South Dakota badlands must be considered a character—literally jump off the pages. Well done!

 Based on a scale of 1-5, Whispers Through Time earns a 7.
