UNSPOKEN by Dee Henderson

Book 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...

My Thoughts: We meet Charlotte Graham who has been through quite a trauma! Charlotte leaves has a lot of unspoken "things" that she needs to work through but yet, Bryce Bishop seems to want to draw closer to Charlotte, especially after Charlotte brings in old coins that seem to be worth quite a bit.  Are Bryce's intentions truthful and honest?
Poor Charlotte after all that she's been through I struggled a long with her in her journey to redefine her faith and her life.
As I read this wonderful romantic suspense novel all I could think was 
Dee Henderson does it again in Unspoken!  
The suspense, the mystery, the love and the faith of trying to cope with a tragedy that brings us to our knees is so well written that the reader tends to forget that this is not a real news flash/life.  {ah! The merits of a great writer!}
I love the title of this book because it sums up the "whole" of the read!
If you're a fan of Dee Henderson grab this read!  Never heard of Dee Henderson but love a great christian suspense novel?  Then this is a great book to begin reading!
