 Title: Things We Didn't Say

Author: Amy Lynn Green

Publisher: Bethany House Publishers

Genre: Historical Fiction

My Review:

I read every detail of this book, including the author's note at the end. I learned that this is the author's debut novel, which I never would have imagined!! This story is incredibly well-written in an epistolary manner (which might be a turn off to some, but I really enjoyed).
