Publisher's Summary

An actress running from her past finds escape with a man hiding from his future.

When someone wants to be lost, a home tucked among the 10,000 Islands off the Florida coast is a good place to live. A couple of 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.

    Story
    "Florida location hooked me.."
    What did you love best about Unwritten?

    I was very pleasantly surprised at how quickly I was hooked by this story. I descriptions of where everything was going on and the humor amid all the sadness was great. I would love to read a 'part 2' to this story!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YEs


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was good but his voice has a low timber. I would have liked it a little louder. Yes, I turned the volume up but it is a tone issue, not a volume issue

    Story
    "Charles Martin does it again! :)"
    If you could sum up Unwritten in three words, what would they be?

    You are me...meaning the two main characters mirrored one another in several ways beautifully. What an amazing mysterious, original story! Loved it!


    What about Kevin Stillwell’s performance did you like?

    His pace and tone was perfect for the style of book that it was. The book was forever unfolding, like a beautiful flower.


    Any additional comments?

    Read it...then go back and read it again...:)

    "Wonderful story"
    What did you love best about Unwritten?

    This story was only somewhat predictable, but unfolded in the most beautiful way.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Stillwell – was your favorite?

    Steady was my favorite.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The great exchange. .. ..I believe he referred to puzzle pieces on one occasion and baggage on separate occasion, but the meaning was not missed.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to compare the subtle threads of grace weaved throughout this story to those that each of us are given on a daily basis.
    The volume was not consistent and I had to continually adjust my head phones manually.

I belong to a book group and we often" Listen" to the books we have selected for the month while using a paper copy for the discussion notes. It really enhances the quality of the story.

    Story
    "Couldn't Stop Listening!!!"

    I already knew I liked Charles Martin. He is a very good writer. However when I started listening to "Unwritten" I almost lost interest after the first half hour or so.( Too many fishing references). Because I usually love his stories I continued on. I am so glad I did. This book really went over the top. The characters story were very different and you were not sure where the plot was going to go. The narrator was excellent. He really made you feel as if you were there watching in the background . I absolutely loved Sunday/Peter what a man! If you have never read Charles Martin this is where to start!

    Story
    "I loved this book"
    What other book might you compare Unwritten to and why?

    I cannot compare this book to any other I have read, as this book touched me in a way that no other ever has.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Stillwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Kevin Stillwell did a fantastic job performing this book and would very much like to hear other books performed by him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire last half of this book, when secrets begin to be revealed and self discovery and healing begins, is so moving and the ending is heart wrenching.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book written by Charles Martin that I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed the first, Catching Fireflies. Now that I have read and totally loved this newest book, I plan to read everything he has written.
