Set within the remarkable history of Nashville’s historic Belle Meade Plantation, To Whisper Her Name weaves real historical characters of the post-war South with the journeys of a man and a woman both disillusioned by betrayal.
Olivia Aberdeen, destitute widow of a murdered carpetbagger, gratefully accepts an invitation from “Aunt” Elizabeth Harding, mistress of Belle Meade Plantation and the dearest friend of Olivia’s late mother.

As Ridley seeks to make peace within himself for “betraying” the South he loved, Olivia is determined to never be betrayed again…
