☆☆☆☆☆5 Beautiful Unspoken Stars ☆☆☆☆☆
Unspoken by Brenda Rothert can be summed up as breathtakingly emotional and beautiful. This book captured my heart and had me tearing up. It rendered me speechless on how personal and close to home this book hit leaving me a beautiful mess. Ms. Rothert will take her readers on an emotional journey that circles on life, love,sacrifices, friendship, family and second chances. This was a journey that everyone should experience. The raw emotional connection of the hero and heroine was a bond that survived all odds and separation. In times of unspoken words, sometimes the bonds of love doesn't need to be said. It is felt. And so Ms. Rothert will make you feel as two lovers chronicle their love as they fight and claw their way to get it right the second time around.
Unspoken Words….Those unspoken words can be the hardest words to say because there is a reason why they are unspoken. Sometimes the words we leave unspoken are the most important ones that should have been said especially when it comes to LOVE. It seems broken hearts are often caused by the words left unspoken. And so begins the coulda, woulda, and shoulda. So when true love and fate is on the line, can those unspoken words be finally said? Or will they continued to be left unspoken?
Second Chances is one of the greatest gifts in life. It allows us to start over and get it right the second time around. This gift allows us to say the I love you’s and I’m sorry’s. So when two lovers are separated because of unspoken words, will they finally get their second chance to get it right? For Brady and Palmer, the coulda, woulda, shoulda comes into play. There was no doubt that these two people had a love that was deep and meaningful but when pride and unsaid words are left in the air, two hearts are left hurt and broken. Call it fate or whatever, when Palmer and Brady are reunited can they finally get it right this second time around? Will they finally utter those unspoken words that needed to be said?
In my opinion, Unspoken by Brenda Rothert is one of the best books that she has written so far. This book was emotional, heartfelt, raw, and captivating. It truly showcases the power of love, sacrifices, family, friendship, life, death, forgiveness and second chances. This was no ordinary love story because it was not only a love story between two lovers but also a story of family and how precious life is. One of the greatest gift in life, is to experience love whether it be between two lovers, friends, or family members. The beauty of love is that it heals and forgives. In this case, Palmer and Brady’s love is a testament that love must be fought. Love must be spoken. In love, pride must be left at the door. And in this case, it is so true when they say when you love someone you have to let them go and if they come back to you then you know its true love. Well in this case, time and distance proved that Palmer and Brady’s love could survive the odds. Unspoken will steal your heart. It will tug and pull on all the heartstrings. The emotions are raw. The writing and storytelling will capture your attention. And this book will leave you a beautiful mess. Though this book dealt with an aspect that I could relate to and left me in tears, the pain and experience was worth it. This book was cleansing in some way because it reminds us all that love is worth the sacrifice. And I highly recommend you to go read this book and have tissues on standby.
