    I loved this novel. I couldn't put it down since I got the mobi. I have never read anything from Walsh, so I didn't know what to expect. The cover and the title is what I was drawn to, and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, it'll be difficult to pick up another book quickly due to the boo...

    I couldn't put this hauntingly beautiful book down, nor could I stop thinking about it when I absolutely did have to set it aside for a moment. This story is all wrapped up in one tragic secret involving a death. Cassie, Lyndie, and Elle were inseparable during the summers while growin...

    Romance, clean; Christian faith elements; PG-13 for death and adult themes This was a beautifully complex story about three couples and how secrets, hurts, and misunderstandings can be healed with honesty and forgiveness. Gorgeous small town setting, multiple family dramas, hurts, se...

    "Some things have to be said out loud. That's how they lose their power." Whoa -- kinda speechless here. This story wasn't at all what I expected it to be...it was all that and so much more! Walsh digs deep into the fractured lives of her characters and delivers an emotionally bre...

    4.5 stars Things Left Unsaid is a poignant story of terrible tragedies and regret, of love and forgiveness and grace. At first a little slow and confusing, Things Left Unsaid quickly wormed its way into my heart and captured my attention. It?s the perfect book for readers who enjo...

    I am not sure what I expected when I picked up this read, but it was not this. I had sort of come to expect maybe more light hearted stories, with a couple lessons here and there. I am not even sure why. Instead, I got a story that addressed real life, hard topics in such a good way....

    Wow. Just wow. This is such a powerfully written story that I don't even know where to begin describing it to you, friends! A story of working through hard things and coming out on the other side having more than survived. From first page until the last, I was hooked into the lives of ...

    'She was sitting in the deepest sorrow of her life and she was sinking.' Things Left Unsaid is one of the most powerful books I have ever read. This one will definitely be in my top ten books of 2018. Courtney Walsh has crafted a novel that pulls at your heart in a way that you won'...

    Three girls whose stories are tied by a friendship marked by tragedy. A mother grieving - for a lost daughter, a passive husband, and a distant son. They all will have to face each other as the tenth anniversary of this loss comes close - and as one of them is getting married. But ...

    I didn't appreciate the blasphemy. There was also a scene with Tucker and Lyndie I didn't like. The sensuality of that scene, for me anyway, felt inappropriate in a Christian novel, and definitely not something I wanted to be reading. ...

    This is the most powerful book I've read all year! Walsh writes such authentic characters dealing with such realistic issues that you can see yourself or someone close to you in at least one of the characters and/or situations. I don't think I've ever read a book where I felt so much e...

    4.5 stars "Some things have to be said out loud, . . . . That's how they lose their power." There had been so many things left unsaid on that fateful night ten years prior; a painful argument between the best of friends, a foolish decision to throw caution to the wind, an unplann...

    Things Left Unsaid is littered with broken characters resulting from the tragic death of a teenage girl on the brink of adulthood. I found the characterization of Elle, Tucker, Lyndie, Karen and Davis to be realistic. They all handled grief a little differently and each found they w...

    Things Left Unsaid is a wonderfully emotional story of friendship and grace. This story surprised me more than once. What I expected to be a story of friendship, summertime memories, and the way the past shapes identities became so much more with every new secret revealed and emoti...

    A powerful, page turner! A story steeped in grace, truth and love. From the beginning you are pulled into the story and it will not let you go. It is real, open and honest? The story is told through the eyes of different characters which only adds to the story and invites you to dive...

    What a beautiful, beautiful piece of writing! Tender, heart wrenching. I suspect this concept of keeping the difficult things to ourselves is something everyone could relate to. Such an array of complex characters. I've never read any of the Sweethaven books, so perhaps there is more t...

    Courtney Walsh is one of my favorite authors so I don?t even read need to read the synopsis on the back of the book because I already know I?m going to love it. That was exactly the case with ?Things Left Unsaid?. Each character is diverse. Some characters were young while s...

    Courtney Walsh is a name that keeps popping up among my Goodreads friends and who was on my wish list of authors to try. I'm really glad I finally gave this author a try. This was a story filled with emotional hurting people who had to deal with a tragic event from their past and their...

    This was an emotional read, and a difficult one at times for me. I am NOT the kind of person who can hold big hurts close to my chest like these characters. Perhaps I was just blessed in having a mother whom I could confide in, no matter what; perhaps I?ve been fortunate in not havin...

    "The building (chapel) was never locked, and the people of Sweethaven never messed with it. It was sacred somehow, and that was exactly what she needed to finish this song. A sense of reverence." Oh, for the simpler days when we didn't have to protect ourselves from church shooting...

    I love Courtney Walsh?s books! They always seem to relay some truth that I need to read at just the right time. As always, this book is fantastic and does not disappoint! This book is about forgiveness, of yourself and others, and second chances. Many times we are our biggest critics...

    Over one summer week at a lake cottage, six individuals each come to grips with how a shared tragedy years before have haunted them. This novel has everything I love to see in a book. Healed hurts, forgiven mistakes, and redeemed relationships. There are three love stories, each unique...

    I could really do without every last detail of the past sins of this cast of characters, but what really bothered me was how (view spoiler)[ the main character's eventual boyfriend gave her alcohol in order to take advantage of her when she was a minor and later on tried to convince hi...
