Publisher's Description

When someone wants to be lost, a home tucked among the Ten Thousand Islands off the Florida coast is a good place to live. A couple decent boats and a deep knowledge of fishing and a man can get by without ever having to talk to another soul. It's a nice enough existence, until the one person who ties him to the world of the living, the reason he's still among them even if only on the fringes, asks him for help.
Father Steady Capri knows quite a bit about helping others. But he is afraid Katie Quinn's problems may be beyond his abilities. Katie is a world-famous actress with an all too familiar story. Fame seems to have driven her to self-destruct. Steady knows the true cause of her desire to end her life is buried too deeply for him to reach. But there is one person who still may be able to save her from herself.
He will show her an alternate escape, a way to write a new life. But Katie still must confront her past before she can find peace. Ultimately, he will need to leave his secluded home and sacrifice the serenity he's found to help her. From the Florida coast they will travel to the French countryside where they will discover the unwritten story of both their pasts and their future.

Author Bio

Charles Martin is a New York Times bestselling author of eight previous novels, including his recent novel Thunder and Rain. His work has been translated into seventeen languages.

He lives with his wife, Christy, and their three sons in Jacksonville, Florida.

Editorial Reviews

Every word Martin writes seems to be purposefully chosen and adds to the beautiful picture he paints with prose. The characters are so real they radiate from the page. Readers will be moved, touched and changed.—RT Book Reviews, 1/2 on Unwritten
"Martin's story charges headlong into the sentimental territory-and best-seller terrain-of The Notebook, which doubtless will mean major studio screen treatment. Buy tissues. Tears will flow."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"A spellbinding novel...Charles Martin took the threads of his storyline and wrapped them around my heart. His unforgettable characters captivate as they confront their hidden pasts and build upon their futures with faith, friendship, and grace."
Elin Hilderbrand, author of Beautiful Day on Unwritten
"Charles Martin understands the power of story and he uses it to alter the souls and lives of both his characters and his readers. In Unwritten there is no easy answer and Sunday and Katie must find their way through fire to possibly emerge whole and changed. "One more chapter," you'll say to yourself, but there won't be 'one more chapter' because you won't be able to put Unwritten down."—Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of And Then I Found You

"I found Unwritten one of those strangely beautiful, exotically original novels whose substance dawns slowly to the reader's consciousness like a glorious sunrise. Do not start this book unless you have time to savor, reflect, and renew. Do, if you have space to fit a memorable reading experience into your life."—Leila Meacham, author of Tumbleweeds
"Charles Martin's latest novel brings to mind the storytelling traditions of Nicholas Sparks and John Grisham. Unwritten is a novel for the heart but it's also one of adventure. From the Florida Everglades to the hills of France, Martin takes the reader on a magical journey of two troubled souls in search of love and redemption. Unwritten is a page turner and has all the ingredients to become a box office smash."—Michael Morris, author of Man in the Blue Moon
"Charles Martin is an imaginative, gutsy storyteller....Unwritten is a fast-paced narrative of transcontinental intrigue."—Karen Spears Zacharias, author, A Silence of Mockingbirds: The Memoir of a Murder
"Reading an advance copy of Unwritten felt like being in on a well-kept secret you just know is destined to blow sky high and leave a mark far and wide. This is what story is meant to be, delivered in prose that will propel you to the next scene, the next page, the next reveal. Charles Martin will pull you into the lives of Katie Quinn, Steady, and Sunday, and you won't even realize their stories are changing yours forever until it's time to leave them on the page."—Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, Belle of All Things Southern and author of Sue Ellen's Girl Ain't Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy!

"Martin has an incredible gift for characterization and writing that tugs at the emotions without being overly melodramatic. This is the type of novel you will want to read quickly, because it is so engrossing, yet want to savor because the prose is meaningful and poignant."
RT Book Reviews (
1/2) on Thunder and Rain

"...entertaining hybrid of James Lee Burke's morality tales and Nicholas Sparks' sentimental journeys.A John Wayne hero, multiple appreciations of the Colt Model 1911 and a cowboy-gets-the-girl"—Kirkus Reviews on Thunder and Rain

    I wasn't sure I was going to like this book. The first couple of chapters didn't grab me at all, and I was second guessing my decision to put this book on my birthday wish list. However, I have liked everything I have read by Charles Martin, so I kept reading and it did soon grab me. I think this is the 4th book I have read by Martin, and I am impressed and amazed at the multilayered characters he comes up with. This book was no different in that aspect. I liked "Sunday" right away and found myself envying his lifestyle, and though I didn't like Katie at first, she grew on me. I thought the plot was extraordinary, and was totally surprised when "Sunday" finally did share his story. Although God isn't mentioned a lot in the book, the theme runs all through the book that a life can be changed and a different course can be set.

    This is one of the best books that I have read lately. I enjoyed it so much, even though it is heavy, that I want to read all of Charles Martin's books.

    "I wanted to get out of there before someone found us. Accused us. Steady sat unfazed. Unmoving. She curled into a fetal position in his lap while he whispered in the air above her.

    The circular burn around her neck was not going away any time soon. A tattoo sans ink. As were the burns on my hands. I made my way to the kitchen sink, ran cold water over the raw meat in my palms, and then handed a wet towel to Steady. He dabbed her neck. Soothing her skin.

    She lay there, sobbing. Shaking uncontrollably. What I saw was not the women who lit the silver screen, walked the red carpet, graced the cover of Vogue, People, or name your tabloid, but a broken human being at the bottom. I slid down the wall, and sat quietly, deciding something I'd long since suspected but never known for sure. Man, or woman, is not made to be worshipped. We are not physically cut out for it. Life in the spotlight, on the pedestal, at the top of the world was a lonely, singular, desolate, soul-killing place." (pg 42).

    To say that Katie Quinn was on top of the world, would be an understatement. She could have anything she ever dreamed and nothing was out of her reach. Being the highest paid female in Hollywood, she could command an 8 figure salary on anything she signed her name to and others got paid to make sure that happened. But money doesn't buy you happiness no matter how much you have and that is something Katie has discovered as she realizes this isn't the life she ever dreamed it would be. Most don't, until they live it and after awhile, desperately wish things were different.

    Thankfully for her, Steady, her priest, realized that she was going to attempt suicide that afternoon when she went to confession leaving all her worldly possessions and power of attorney of her estate to him. Now he just needed to find a way to reach the person she was outside of Hollywood's leading roles and find a way to heal the pain so deep inside her that the only way to relieve that pain would be to take a gracefully bow off her penthouse in Miami. But God has other plans in store for Katie and it will begin by first choosing one of three doors set before her. Once she chooses, she can never go back. He just hopes she will choose the right one.

    I received Unwritten by Charles Martin compliments of Center Street Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed in this review are strictly my own, except where otherwise noted. Charles Martin is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. In fact, just seeing his name on any book will guarantee I will read it. There are that great! Think Nicholas Sparks, Dan Walsh, Andy Andrews and you have an idea of the type of novel that will completely captivate you and transport you to a time and place of the characters you will discover there. This is the story of how broken people can find healing again, if, they are willing to search for it. It lies within us all and I think there is a part of us that can relate to Katie or Sunday, the man who offers to walk by her side for the journey. What you will discover in the end, is something so remarkable you have to pick up a copy of Unwritten and read it for yourself. There are second chances and fresh starts waiting just inside! I easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars! Unforgettable!!!

    I have read almost all of Charles Martin's books and was looking forward to this one. Much more predictable than his others. Was unhappy to read "I might have given him the finger - several dozen times" on page 314. We all know what this means and it is not something that should be used by a Godly man. Had he written out the words instead of using the term I am sure more would have been offended. "They

    could shove their contract" is also crude as was another term used a couple of times in the book. Tame for a secular novel

    but not appropriate for a Christian one.
