    In 1840, after spending two years overseas studying geology, Jesmond Corbett returns home to Tasmania. Jesmond is determined to please her snobbish elitist mother Beatrice by marrying her fiancÚ, wealthy aristocrat Harrington Tate.

    Her brother Warwick salivates over the stallion she brought back for him, but quickly learns the hard way that Finnegan's Luck throws its' rider. The government men work on the Corbett estate paying for their crimes to society. A government man, Lucas Gallagher catches Finnegan's Luck when the horse tries to escape. Warwick awards him by moving Lucas to the stables where he meets Jesmond a lot since she enjoys riding. Soon Lucas and Jesmond fall in love, but society would never accept a relationship between a convict and a lady.

    WHISPERS OF HEAVEN provides readers with an interesting look at Australian society in 1840, which makes for a fresh story line due to the unique setting. At the same time that the plot provides an intriguing look into the past Down Under, the details lead to a slow moving tale. Still, the main characters, including the siblings, are fully developed and each one represents a segment of society. Candice Proctor is a talented author.
