Publisher's Description

Charlotte Graham is at the center of the most famous kidnapping in Chicago history.

The task force of FBI and local cops found her two abductors, killed them, rescued her, but it took four very long years. The fact she was found less than three miles from her home, had been there the entire time, haunts them. She's changed her identity, found a profession she loves, and rebuilt her life.

She's never said a word--to the cops, to her doctors, to family--about those four years.

A family legacy has brought her back to Chicago where a reporter is writing a book about the kidnapping. The cops who worked the case are cooperating with him. Her options are limited: Hope the reporter doesn't find the full truth, or break her silence about what happened. And her silence is what has protected her family for years.

Bryce Bishop doesn't know her past, he only knows she has coins to sell from her grandfather's estate--and that the FBI director for the Chicago office made the introduction. The more he gets to know Charlotte, the more interested he becomes, an interest encouraged by those closest to her. But nothing else is working in his favor--she's decided she is single for life, she struggles with her faith, and she's willing to forego a huge inheritance to keep her privacy. She's not giving him much of an opening to work with.

Charlotte wants to trust him. She needs to tell him what happened. Because a crime cops thought was solved, has only opened another chapter...

    This review was written for Unspoken.
    I found this story to be a bit long and drawn out at times and not true to life, what "real people in real situations" would do. The story itself is okay but I didn't find myself really caring about Charlotte a whole lot. I don't know why, other than her character didn't engage me too much. Friendship, loyalty and trust run throughout Charlotte and Bryce's story which was a big plus for me.

    Received this book from the publisher for a review and opinion.

    Book Summary: Charlotte Graham is at the center of the most famous kidnapping in Chicago history. The task force of FBI and local cops found her two abductors, killed them, rescued her, but it took four very long years. The fact she was found less than three miles from her home, had been there the entire time, haunts them. She's changed her identity, found a profession she loves, and rebuilt her life. She's never said a word--to the cops, to her doctors, to family--about those four years. A family legacy has brought her back to Chicago where a reporter is writing a book about the kidnapping. The cops who worked the case are cooperating with him. Her options are limited: Hope the reporter doesn't find the full truth, or break her silence about what happened. And her silence is what has protected her family for years.

    Review: First, I must say I liked this better than Full Disclosure. I even found myself liking Ann better because of Unspoken. I liked Bishop he was the best part of the book. The talk of coins - I have enough of that after 5 pages, yet it never seemed to stop. No wonder the main character was tired with his career. Charlotte and her secrets, the mystery man who was a ‘cop' which was alluded to for 2/3rd of the book not very exciting. I feel for me that Unspoken made up for Full Disclosure but not enough to rush out to read another book in this line. The suspense was lacking and I found the talk of wealth fanciful. Keep it, give it away whatever the decision is it can not cure what ails the human heart. I was glad to see it end, yet Dee Henderson does a fantastic job of painting a picture with words. The places were vivid. For me the talk of money and coins were not exciting. The horrible things that happened to Charlotte tragic. But as far as human spirit Charlotte was halfway there. She never healed or dealt with those events that resulted from her kidnapping. I could go on about the things I was frustrated with but the bottom line for me is that the characters from Full Disclosure were better written, Bishop and his family (what we saw of them) were realistic and the friends of Bishop & Charlotte were realistic and enjoyable. It was worth the read, but not something I need to reread.

    I would like to thank Net Galley and Bethany House Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

    Dee Henderson books have strong characters that do not rush willy-nilly into romance. The characters are old enough to consider all the ramifications of romance, while dealing with a suspense filled problem. I really enjoy Henderson's work, but do not expect high-tension suspense. While the suspense is there, it is more the unraveling of a thread, than a serial killer is. The characters show great depth leading to a beautiful romance built on strength, not just flash. The strong Christian theme adds greatly to the story. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy a deeper romantic story with a little suspense woven through.

    ***CONTAINS SPOILERS***

    When Unspoken came out, I hoped it was going to be suspenseful, gripping, thought provoking, emotionally charged, and keep me on the edge of my seat. Sadly, none of those were there for me. I was sorely disappointed and bored out of my gourd with the endless rare coin information. Not to mention that the heroine, Charlotte Graham, who survived being held captive by kidnappers for four years as a teenager, has been bequeathed an eight billion dollar inheritance (yes, you heard that right) by her grandfather that includes several hundred millions of dollars in rare coins (perhaps billions even), and no one knows about them. I think if there were that many rare coins in the possession of one man someone would know it. It just seemed too far-fetched for me to even believe a little bit of the story. The kicker is she has to marry in a certain amount of time to inherit the full estate. Uh, yeah right. That sounds like something that should be in historical fiction, not contemporary.

    Even the hero, Bryce Bishop, was kind of unbelievable. He's a wealthy coin dealer (of course) who is a Christian. He consistently shows kindness, patience, perseverance, gentleness, humility -- all fruits of the Spirit in his daily dealings with others, especially Charlotte. Not that we shouldn't be this way but he was just too perfect. He has all the right moves, all the right answers, all the right everything. By the end, he is in love with Charlotte and willing to marry her so she can fully inherit.

    The best part of the book was seeing Ann and Paul Falcon from Full Disclosure. Honestly, the mystery they were solving in this book was much more thrilling than anything else. The scenes with them were excellently written and captivating!

    I appreciate Bethany House providing a copy for review purposes. I wasn't required to write a positive review, just my opinion of the book, which I have done.
