“I set off for India. And I discovered that everything I had thought important. . . isn’t.”
This quotation is the underlying theme weaving all the beautiful, poetic pages of Kimberly Duffy’s new novel together. Gussie Travers, our heroine, pens these words in her journal, and in them we discover the cry of her heart – before she even fully realizes it herself. “Every Word Unsaid” is the third book I’ve read by this incredible Bethany House author, and she truly never ceases to amaze me with her meaningful and thought-provoking novels that also entertain the imagination and are a delight to the senses. You simply cannot read one of her stories without wanting to visit India, with all its sights and sounds and smells and textures.
“Every Word Unsaid” contains every element of a powerful and unforgettable story – plus some serious themes of identity, God’s grace, and the definition of what is truly important in life. I believe this book will become a classic for many, because it can be read again and again, and each time the reader will glean a new insight from the words, a new truth from the characters, a new perspective they may not have considered.
Please, add “Every Word Unsaid” to your reading list – soon! And while you are at it, add Ms. Duffy’s previous two books as well, for they are every bit as good. I simply cannot wait to see what is in store next from this unforgettable author.
