    Chelsea Enright never expected to inherit her grandmother's lakeside cottage deep in the Adirondacks - a serene getaway that had been mysteriously closed up decades ago. This is no simple bequest, however, because when Chelsea finds her grandmother's World War II diaries, she's stunned to discover that they hold secrets she never suspected - and they have the power to turn her own life upside down.

    Patti says: "Oh Lordy"
    "Reads like a middle school journal."

    What disappointed you about More Than Words Can Say?

    It was utterly boring. The focus was on attire, childish and superficial thoughts. I gave up after the second chapter. Both Chelsea and her grandmother seemed so similarly pretentious. Flirtatious and pretending not to be...annoying.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    None from this author. Already ordered "The Night Circus," and because it is narrated by Jim Dale, it just has to be premium!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Annoying voice.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from More Than Words Can Say?

    The kitchen scenes...the schoolgirl front, the emphasis on the clothing...


    Any additional comments?

    This book lacked spice and intelligent dialogue. It just didn't captivate my interest. The plot: spending time to analyze the journal just seemed too weak a ploy to get to know someone and kindle a relationship.
