Everything She Didn't Say by Jane Kirkpatrick

Travel.  Adventures.  Carrie aka Dell experienced it all.  But at what cost?

I read this book not realizing that there was a Carrie Strahorn.  I was fascinated by her journey and her dedication to her husband, Robert.  I wanted to throttle him but she was patient and accepting.  I would have left him but she was faithful and supportive.  I wanted to scream but she was caring and calm.

I had a very difficult time relating to Carrie.  I wanted her to speak up.  I wanted her to take a stand.  But I had to remember that the book is based in 1877 to 1920s.  Women and their roles in marriage are vastly different than they are today.

Jane Kirkpatrick is a gifted writer.  She can paint a picture with her words.  I recommend this to others who love historical fiction.  I am so glad I was able to read this.

I received this free to review.
