Things Left Unspoken

Product Description (from

Jo-Lynn Hunter is at a crossroads in life when her great-aunt Stella insists that she return home to restore the old family house in sleepy Cottonwood, Georgia. Seeing the project as the perfect excuse for some therapeutic time away from her self-absorbed husband and his snobby Atlanta friends, Jo-Lynn longs to get her teeth into a noteworthy and satisfying project. But things are not what they seem, both in the house and within the complex history of her family. Was her great-grandfather the pillar of the community she thought he was? What is Aunt Stella hiding? And will Jo-Lynn's marriage survive the renovation? Jo-Lynn isn't sure she wants to know the truth--but sometimes the truth has a way of making itself known. The past comes alive in this well-written and thoughtful novel full of secrets, drama, and family with a hint of Southern drawl.


I always enjoy a well written novel and Things Left Unspoken did not disappoint. I appreciated the way Eva Marie Everson allowed the story to slowly unfold, giving the reader a chance to really get to know the characters along the way. There were several different stories woven within an overarching storyline but Everson made the book easy to read and easy to follow. I think my favourite part of the story though was some of the wonderful supporting characters. Everson is a very descriptive writer and I found the story easy to picture. I would recommend this book to the fiction lovers out there.

Thank you so much!

It means more than you can know that you write these words for others to read.
