More Than Words Can Say

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Chelsea Enright has just received an inheritance, her late grandmother's lakeside cottage. This is not a cottage where Chelsea or even her mother spent summers or vacations. No one has even visited the place since her grandmother closed it decades before. The quaint cottage bears secrets of a wartime love affair that could prove devastating to Chelsea and those dearest to her. It's a good thing Chelsea's next door neighbor is a handsome doctor who loves a good mystery. Together they unravel the wartime love story the cottage has kept secret for all these years.
Mr. Barclay is so adept at his beautiful descriptions of the cottage I felt like I would know it, should I happen upon it.

No this isn't it, but it ought to be!
I loved reading about the cottage with its pink quartz fireplace and crackling fire, the stateside French cafe and Greg's purple coneflowers.There are even recipes included that the character Chelsea's grandmother created, each charmingly named after an Allied war hero.
I enjoyed More Than I Can Say very much and would highly recommend it! It's that perfect combination of love story/mystery with a dash of history thrown in for good measure. This would be a good book to read on a snowy day in front of a roaring fire. Watch the weather report and go get your copy...Quick before the storm hits.
