REVIEW: Unspoken by Dee Henderson


Genre: Christian Fiction
Release Date: October 1, 2013
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers

Charlotte Graham is at the center of the most famous kidnapping in Chicago history.

The task force of FBI and local cops found her two abductors, killed them, rescued her, but it took four very long years. The fact she was found less than three miles from her home, had been there the entire time, haunts them. She's changed her identity, found a profession she loves, and rebuilt her life.

She's never said a word--to the cops, to her doctors, to family--about those four years.

A family legacy has brought her back to Chicago where a reporter is writing a book about the kidnapping. The cops who worked the case are cooperating with him. Her options are limited: Hope the reporter doesn't find the full truth, or break her silence about what happened. And her silence is what has protected her family for years.

Bryce Bishop doesn't know her past, he only knows she has coins to sell from her grandfather's estate--and that the FBI director for the Chicago office made the introduction. The more he gets to know Charlotte, the more interested he becomes, an interest encouraged by those closest to her. But nothing else is working in his favor--she's decided she is single for life, she struggles with her faith, and she's willing to forego a huge inheritance to keep her privacy. She's not giving him much of an opening to work with.

Charlotte wants to trust him. She needs to tell him what happened. Because a crime cops thought was solved, has only opened another chapter...

I was given an Ecopy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was the first book I had ever read by Dee Henderson, as I am new to reading in bulk and don’t normally go for Christian Fiction books, but the blurb caught me off guard so I decided it might be worth it. There was a lot of detail in this book. I did have a couple spots where I was a bit overwhelmed with the over descriptive-ness and just wanted it to end, but it wasn’t the worst I have read by far… This is a very suspenseful read and the romance in the story is very sweet and takes its time. Seeing as I got a PREpublished copy of this book, I will not allow my rating or review to be based on any grammatical errors however, I do hope the editor go these ironed out before the publication date.

I give this book 4 out of 5 shields!!
