I am so glad I borrowed this book. It was so slow moving, not really anything going on until chapters 28-30, the characters were not developed, holes in the story about people. I wasted so much time with a book that could of been written in 15 chapters not 30+. Don't waste your time, go with another book.
This was the first book I read by Dee Henderson and I think I know more about coins then I ever cared to know. Parts of this book really dragged on for me,going into way to much detail for my taste.I am not even sure that there are that many rare coins around on the level that the book goes into. Another huge disappointment for me was I really hoped the book would go into more detail surrounding the kidnapping and what took place over the 4 year period that Charlotte was held captive, but it only skates around the whole topic, which was quit frustrating. I received a e-copy of this book and there were ALOT of spelling issues. Any words spelt with two "f f's" did not come across and formatting issues which made the book less enjoyable than it could have been and irritated me at times. So you have words like suffice, that come out suice and you are left pondering what the word is suppose to be till your brain catches up.
On the plus side,the book does hold true to its christian theme. It really dives into forgiveness, acceptance,and unconditional love. The need for a savior and a personal relationship with God to get you through life and to lean on and trust in Him no matter what life tosses at you,even when you do not understand His plan.
Overall I give this book 3 out of 5 stars, but i am not sure I can really recommend it highly.
Unspoken, Dee Henderson's latest novel, is an enjoyable read, although lacking the high level of romance and suspense which drive her O'Malley Series and other earlier books. The romance and suspense are both present, but they move at a much slower, more relaxed pace than might be expected from Dee.
A big part of the mystery in this story comes in "unwrapping" Charlotte, one of the main characters. Details about her life - past and present - come out in small pieces, keeping a level of suspense throughout the story. The book is a bit long and has places where the details about coin collecting and dealing with tremendous wealth do tend to slow down the pace a bit too much.
Although this book is not part of a series, anyone who has read Full Disclosure will find familiar characters as Ann and Paul Falcon show up in major roles in this story.
All in all, I would recommend Unspoken as a good read for Dee Henderson fans.
Thanks to Bethany House for providing me this book in exchange for my honest review.
Not sure why it got so many good reviews. This book was Boring. Tons of stuff about buying and selling coins. No real interesting stuff till the last third. Back of book describes a reporter coming into her life, which doesn't even happen til half way thru the book and doesn't really play that big of a role. I had to struggle to get to the end.
