✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ The Things We Need to Say by Rachel Burton

The Things We Need to Say
An emotional, uplifting story of grief and hope 
by Rachel Burton

A true novel of the heart, Rachel's The Things We Need to Say is at once beautifully written and achingly honest. This is a story that carries you away, taking you on an incredibly poignant journey, and which stays with you long after you finish. Read it! Jenny Ashcroft, author of Beneath a Burning Sky

‘Devastatingly beautiful, inspiring and extremely thought provoking; Rachel Burton has written from the heart as she unintentionally becomes the voice of everything we need to say.’ The Writing Garnet

Sometimes the things we never say are the most important.

Fran loves Will with all her heart. They had a whirlwind romance, a perfect marriage and a wonderful life. Until everything changed. Now Fran needs to find her way again and teaching a yoga retreat in Spain offers her just that. Leaving behind a broken marriage she has some very important decisions to make.

Will needs his wife, he needs her to open up to him if they’re to ever return to the way things once were. But he may have damaged any possibility he had of mending their relationship and now Fran is in Spain and Will is alone.

As both Fran and Will begin to let go of a life that could have been, fate may just find a way of bringing them back together.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Things We Need to Say was a little out of my reading wheelhouse of late, but something about it caught my attention. The book is wonderfully written and such a compelling story that I finished it in one day. The story moves back and forth in time to give some insight into what made Fran and Will the people they are today. I was a bit worried that those jumps in time would get confusing, but it's quite well done and those parts do help shape the reader's opinions of this couple. I did spend a considerable amount of time waffling on whether they should try to make their marriage work or move on separately from one another, but with everything they've been through, it was hard not to root for their happy ending. The story is emotional as Fran and Will go through their ups and downs - some more serious than others - but the book is about so much more than working through problems in a marriage. It's about love, loss, and picking up the pieces to find a way back to happiness and hope.
