Book Giveaway: Words Unspoken

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

In 1987 events are put into motion that intertwine lives ~ seemingly at random. A young girl struggling to overcome the tragic death of her mother. A missionary couple in France. A driving instructor and his wife. An up and coming stockbroker. All individuals who face various struggles: depression, deception, a broken marriage.

Lissa, the young girl who's mother died tragically, hears those accusatory 'unspoken words' constantly throughout her day. She isn't good enough. It was her fault. Failure. She'll never be anything. It is through the love and dedication of a driving instructor that Lissa learns Who is greater than those voices and the victory that results.
"When too many coincidences line up, when you feel there is someone looking over your shoulder, you are probably right. Someone big and unseen and all-powerful is orchestrating events in your life to get your attention. Not coincidence. Divine intervention. The question you must ask yourself is this: will I listen to this voice?"
Words Unspoken by Elizabeth Musser is the first novel that I have read by her. At first I was a little puzzled, trying to piece together the various characters and see how they all fit together ~ but in time they do! Musser doesn't skirt around the topic of depression either, having several of her characters struggling with deep emotional issues. The themes of forgiveness, redemption and hope are woven throughout the book.
