An intriguing moment of history: "Everything She Didn't Say" by Jane Kirkpatrick
about the book....
There is more than one way to tell a story . . .
In 1911, Carrie Strahorn wrote a memoir sharing some of the most exciting events of twenty-five years of shaping the American West with her husband, railroad promoter and writer Robert Strahorn. Nearly ten years later, she's finally ready to reveal the secrets she hadn't told anyone--even herself.
Certain that her writings will be found only after her death, Carrie confronts the pain and disappointment of the pioneering life with startling honesty. She explores the danger a woman faces of losing herself within a relationship with a strong-willed man. She reaches for the courage to accept her own worth. Most of all she wonders, Can she ever feel truly at home in this rootless life?
New York Times bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick draws out the emotions of living--the laughter and pain, the love and loss--to give us a window not only into the past but into our own conflicted hearts. Based on a true story.
Kirkpatrick has once again used her research skills to bring history to life with characters that will long linger on your mind. Readers who have never had the chance to try one of her novels should absolutely consider doing so right away, and "Everything She Didn't Say" is a great place to start. Kirkpatrick's writing is beautiful and, though her novels don't move at a breakneck pace, they leave much for you to savour. I award this book a solid rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
