A profoundly moving multi-generational family story centered around a woman s return to her late grandmother s lake cottage and the long-buried secrets she uncovers there, More Than Words Can Say will linger long in the heart and memory."

When Chelsea Enright’s beloved grandmother, Brooke, dies, she inherits her long-forgotten Adirondack cottage and a strange letter telling Chelsea not to sell the cabin until she’s visited and uncovered more instructions—hidden beneath the floorboards—from Brooke. Chelsea finds a set of diaries outlining Brooke’s experiences during WWII, when she stayed at the cottage while her husband Bill was in officer training. According to the late Gram’s missives, Brooke fell in love with next door neighbor Greg, leaving her horribly conflicted. Bill dies unexpectedly when his ship is sunk by a German U-boat, and Brooke finds solace with Greg. However, Brooke is overcome with guilt and abandons Greg and the cottage, vowing never to return to either. Soon after leaving, she realizes she is pregnant, but is never certain if the father of her child is Bill or Greg. While reading through her Gram’s epistolary love story, Chelsea grows closer to her own next door neighbor at the cottage, Brandon, in Barclay’s clumsy but well-meaning attempt to draw a parallel between the grandmother and granddaughter’s stories. Unimaginative prose, dull characters, and a telegraphed and unsurprising plot make this story better left beneath the floorboards. (Jan.)
