Dee Henderson is the author of eighteen novels, including her powerful O'Malley series. Her books have won or been nominated for several prestigious industry awards, such as the RITA Award, the Christy Award, and the ECPA Gold Medallion.

You can visit her at and the Dee Henderson Books Facebook page.

Charlotte Graham is at the center of the most famous kidnapping in Chicago history.

The FBI and local cops found her two abductors, killed them, and rescued her, but it took four long years.  The fact that she was found just three miles from her home, had been there the entire time, haunts them.  She's since 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 her family - about those four years.

A family legacy has brought her back to Chicago, where a reporter is writing a book about the kidnapping.  Her options are limited; either hope the reporter doesn't uncover 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 Charlotte's past; he only knows she has coins to sell from her grandfather's estate - and that the FBI director in Chicago made the introduction.  The more he gets to know Charlotte, the more interested he becomes, an interest encouraged by those closest to her.  But she's decided she is single for life, she struggles with her faith, and she's willing to forgo 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 the cops thought was solved has only opened up another chapter...

My Thoughts:
My heart rate and excitement goes up immediately before turning to the first page of any Dee Henderson book!  Unspoken did not disappoint and may be her best offering to date.  And I always start one of her books on the weekend, because once I start one of her novels, I can not put it down.  Henderson weaves a cast of characters with almost unbelievable talent.  The interaction between those characters teach the readers so much about life, love, faith and overcoming fear and some of the most tragic circumstances.
Henderson's plot development and twists carry you on a ride that as a reader you won't soon forget.  I find myself thinking about her characters and what they've gone through long past turning the last page.  The emotion Henderson is able to portray with her words is palpable at times.  Sometimes I was literally scared to turn the next page and at other times I couldn't turn the page fast enough.
I personally think any of her books could be blockbusters on the big screen!

Thank you Bethany House Publishers for sending me the complimentary copy of the book for the purpose of this review.
