    An interesting and intriguing book. Had me laughing and at times had my heart breaking. My heart ached for a woman who died nearly 100 years ago. A beautiful woman who lived an extraordinary life. One of the most selfless, caring woman I have ever known through the pages of a book. ...

    Well written, interesting life, but at the core, I didn't really like the main people featured. ...

    This is the third book I have read from this author. My track record is not that good. I think I will not be reading another book from this author. Which is a shame as I keep finding myself drawn to this author's books due to the time periods and the premises. The author has no problem...

    Everything She Didn't Say is the newest release by Jane Kirkpatrick. I love historicals and love them more when they were based on real people. However, the style this story was written was not one I enjoy as much as others I have read in the past. I did not feel connected to Carrie as...

    4 stars Everything She Didn?t Say by Jane Kirkpatrick is a fascinating book. It imagines the life of Carrie Strahorn and what she didn?t include (say) in her memoir ?Fifteen Thousand Miles by Stage?. I had to keep reminding myself I was reading historical fiction. I kept ...

    I am a huge fan of this author - I was thrilled to get the opportunity to read this book. The author is very talented and her stories bring history to life. In this story, you meet Carrie. She details her journey west along with her husband. Her husband works for the Union Pacific rail...

    Jane Kirkpatrick has committed her writing career to revealing the true stories of real pioneer women, who played pivotal roles in settling the west coast, despite remaining unknown to most Americans. Many of the women she has written about helped establish towns, made non-traditional...

    *4.5 stars Ever read a story that leaves you both infuriated and heartbroken at the same time? That was me with this book. In the beginning of the story I was sympathetic towards Carrie and her dreams, but also believed that Robert was trying to make the means to support them and thei...

    Jane Kirkpatrick has once again found a little known female pioneer and brought her story to us. We've come to expect interesting stories about women that in their own unique ways helped to shape our nation. In Everything She Didn't Say, Ms. Kirkpatrick uses Carrie Strahorn's actual ac...

    Will Rogers said he never meet a man he didn?t like, well I never read a Jane Kirkpatrick book I didn?t like! Her books always draw me in because they are about real people and history. She never ceases to amaze me how she fleshes out the historical facts she has with emotions and ...

    When I read books to review I look for books that interest me, that may have an interesting graphic on a book, or perhaps--even possibly--be based on some truth. That is the case for Jane Kirkpatrick's book Everything She Didn't Say. While Jane Kirkpatrick has written tons, a myriad, ...

    Liked Where do I start? This book is SO GOOD! I had really low expectations for it but it blew me away! I really, really, really loved the authenticity that this book has (I mean, it is based on a memoir but this book felt super authentic). I felt as if Carrie "Dell" was sitting nex...

    Jane Kirkpatrick has a notable skill when it comes to weaving together fact and fiction. Carrie "Dell" Strahorn calls out through Kirkpatrick's words inviting readers into the ups and downs of life in the old west. In all honesty, Kirkpatrick's skill made this book a hard read for m...

    Although I was expecting more of a ?romance? from the cover, and it took a bit to adjust to the memoir style, I enjoyed Kirkpatrick?s Everything She Didn?t Say. The romance came more from how Dell, the main female character, learned to love her eccentric, distracting, self-...

    DNF @ 256. really dry and boring to me. Perhaps it gets better but for now i?m just going to set it down. Content up to where I read: -Mentions of the ?marriage bed? -Mentions that Robert was infertile. -Mentions of Carrie longing for children she couldn?t have. ??...

    An interesting and intriguing book. Had me laughing and at times had my heart breaking. My heart ached for a woman who died nearly 100 years ago. A beautiful woman who lived an extraordinary life. One of the most selfless, caring woman I have ever known through the pages of a book. ...
