About the book
Lissa Randall's future was bright with academic promise until the tragic accident that took her mother's life--and brought her own plans to a screeching halt. Eighteen months later, she still can't get back behind the wheel.

A casual recommendation to Ev McAllistair's driving school sets in motion a cascade of events... until Lissa begins to wonder if maybe, just maybe, life isn't as random as she's thought.

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Lookout Mountain, TN, Words Unspoken weaves together a vibrant cast of characters whose intertwining stories of courage, choice, heartbreak, and hope will hold you captive until the final page.

My Thoughts
This book caught me in its web of characters and events quite rapidly. At the beginning of the novel, you get introduce slowly to all the main characters from the book, Lissa, the stock brokers, the publisher and one of his employee, Caleb, Janelle, Kathy Lynn. Each of them has struggles and issues to deal with. And as the chapters goes by, these characters lives begin to intertwined to each other in ways that nobody would suspect.

I find that there is some mysterious things going on in this book. An anonymous author is just part of the novel. You will also wonder who Caleb is and why some characters are dealing with grief linked to death.

I know that I have discovered an author that I didn’t know about until I read this book. I have a tendency to always get the books from the authors I really like. But writing reviews helped me to expand my “repertoire” so to speak and Elizabeth Musser has a real gift in making her characters alive in your imagination. She includes so much details about places that now I want to visit the Chattanooga area especially the LookOut Moutain. I just want to pack my family and go travel with our RV. Okay maybe this time of the year is not the best but could you imagine going to LookOut Mountain during the Fall season? Breathtaking.

Throughout the novel, you will learn to deal with fear and distress due to a tragic event. The important thing we need to remember is that we need to keep our eyes on the Lord and let Him helps us to deal with the grief and sadness. Also, when negative thoughts pop in our mind, we can be sure they are not from God. So immediately we need to ask him to help us. It’s not always easy to do so especially when we deal with depression but it can be done.
