Things Left Unspoken

by | Jul 23, 2009 | Fiction Book Reviews | 0 comments

Every family–and every house–has its secrets. Jo-Lynn Hunter is at a crossroads in life when her great-aunt Stella insists that she return home to restore the old family manse in sleepy Cottonwood, Georgia. Jo-Lynn longs to get her teeth into a noteworthy and satisfying project. And it’s the perfect excuse for some therapeutic time away from her self-absorbed husband and his snobby Atlanta friends.
Beneath the dust and the peeling wallpaper, things are not what they seem, and what Jo-Lynn doesn’t know about her family holds just as many surprises. Was her great-grandfather the pillar of the community she thought he was? What is Aunt Stella hiding? And will her own marriage survive the renovation? Jo-Lynn isn’t sure she wants to know the truth–but sometimes the truth has a way of making itself known.

Reading this book was like sitting on my Granny’s front porch swing, sipping iced tea, and listening to her spin a yarn about days gone by. Yes, some of the ‘secrets’ revealed in this book might have caused me to spill my tea, but the story flowed in a gentle, easy fashion and ended with a sigh. Eva Marie Everson writes a story that speaks about God’s love, forgiveness, and the power of second chances. For me, the pace got a bit slow in some parts, but -as a reader- I NEEDED to find out what would happen between Jo-Lynn and her estranged husband. I needed to know how Aunt Stella’s secret would come to the surface, and I finally needed to discover who the arsonists were.
