Publisher's Summary

After fulfilling a pledge to a dying friend, Zacharias Hamilton is finally free. No family entanglements. No disappointing those around him. Just the quiet bachelor existence he's always craved. Until fate snatches his freedom away when the baker of his favorite breakfast bun is railroaded by the city council. Despite not wanting to get involved, he can't turn a blind eye to her predicament...or her adorable dimples.

Abigail Kemp needs a man's name on her bakery's deed. A marriage of convenience seems the best solution...if it involves a man she can control. That person definitely isn't the stoic lumberman who oozes silent confidence whenever he enters her shop. Control Zacharias Hamilton? She can't even control her pulse when she's around him. 

When vows are spoken, Abigail's troubles should be over. Yet threats to the bakery worsen, and darker dangers hound her sister. Can she put ever more trust in Zach without losing her dreams of independence?

Expected Better

I was anticipating this book for a year since I LOVED Zacharias from the first book, I wanted to see him finally get peace and love, and he did get that .. but for some reason I didn't like many parts of the story, his character changed so fast that I feel he is a different person all together, I wanted the broody, lonely Zac to change but I wanted more from the story than this, most of the story just a filler until they finally become " husband and wife ", I wanted to enjoy the story more than I did but let's see what will happen with Rosalyn
As a side note, I never understand the story where the main character kiss and date and sleep together and they still wonder if they love each other !!! I mean, if you do all that and you are still not sure of how you feel when will you ???? really weird

Enjoyed this Story

Another great book by Karen Witemeyer. This is the second book in the series Patchwork Family. I enjoyed this book as much as the first. I would recommend both books. The characters are very easy to love. This story has a message of healing and forgiveness as well as trust. Well written and enjoyable.

Christian romantic fiction

Great engaging story. Romantic without the uncomfortable sexual details so you can listen in the car with kids. The main character's strong faith in God is what gets her through life's challenges.

A wonderful heart-throbbing love story

As with so many of Karen Witemeyer’s books, More Than Words Can Tell is filled with deep emotion and totally “ brings the reader/listener into “ the tale.
This has been my second time listening to this audiobook. My enjoyment of it was just a strong as the 1st time. The characters seem so real and endearing. The sentiment from earlier years, when respect, public behavior,manners, and integrity were very important only enhances this story.
This audiobook borders between “mail order brides” and proper British society rules.
For months after the death of her father, Abigail continued to efficiently run the Family-owned tBakery as she had for the past years her father had been so ill. Now, although she had been current on paying taxes and the bills, the Mayor and the Town Council is demanding she sell her Bakery or find a male partner too own the shop and sponsor her or else she was to move out within days.
She was the one now who had to care for and provide for her sister, Rosie and herself . She did not need a man in her life. However, to keep her shop, she was determined to find a man to marry and allow a partnership. It would have to be a marriage in name only, at least for a long while. The problem was that there was not a lot of marriageable men in her small town and certainly fewer than she could trust.
Zachary was reasonably new to the community. He stopped into her shop often. He was always quiet and respectful. He was a hard working man. At first when she approached him with her proposal, he was taken back. But after her sister, Rosie, talked with him, he finally conceded. This, by no means , solved her problems.
Zackary is every woman’s dream of a husband. I imagine Abigail is also most men”s dream of a wife , at least in personality.
The Narrator, Barbara Mc Culloh , do am outstanding job narrating. She was amazing in the fabulous use of her various “voices “ plus the energy and emphasizes she put in her reading. She is truly a talented narrator and performer!
This book or audiobook is pure entertainment!

My Favorite of Karen Witemeyer’s Books so Far

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, “More than Words Can Say,” by Karen Witemeyer. This is the fourth book by the author that I have listened to and it is my favorite so far. In fact I place it in my top ten books that I have read in my life and enjoyed. The writing was excellent and I enjoyed the humor along with the thought process of the characters. I also enjoyed the pearls of wisdom throughout the book. It was a good story. The narration was very good, too. Thank you. I look forward to enjoying some more of Karen Witemeyer’s books.

a little too romancey for me

I love this author's writing style, however, the romantic physical description was a bit too much for me and I had to quit reading this book. It is a shame because I really want to find out how it ended. :-(

A gem

Great story that I didn’t want to pause. Abigail and Zach’s relationship was sweet and funny. I laughed out loud several times—even scaring my dog once! Individually, they showed their depth of character bit by bit, becoming more relatable with every chapter. Definitely going to read more Karen Witemeyer’s books!
