About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Say All the Unspoken Things: A Book of Letters by John Sowers

Say All the Unspoken Things: A Book of Letters

From the author: "Many of us go through life with words and feelings stranded in our hearts. Words we deeply feel but never say. Sometimes we never have the chance. We don't always get to say goodbye. We don't always know when will be our last hug, high five, smile, laugh or 'I love you.' All we have is today, now, and what we do in this one, shining moment."

Say All the Unspoken Things is about living, speaking and loving from our deep hearts. Written as personal letters from a father to his daughters, it covers topics such as: bravery, wonder, beauty, kindness, romance, and God's patient love. This book will help us find our stranded words, speak more freely and move us away from a shallow life.


Are you like me, and sometimes unable to express your true feelings? Is it easier to put your thoughts into writing, instead of verbally saying them out loud? During the pandemic John Sowers began to write letters to his three daughters to share how much he loved them, and to also encourage them in their daily lives. These letters are moving and eloquent reminders of his love for his daughters, but they are equally beneficial to all of us who read them. They cover a myriad of subjects, and a multitude of emotions, and they provide tremendous insight and wisdom.

'Live simple lives. Create space for your souls to breathe. Rest on Sundays. Be thankful and content and free. Forgive others.' (p. 186)

Sowers urges readers to tell their loved ones just how they feel, and to do it now, instead of later! Reading this book was especially emotional for me! I knew that my father loved me with all of his might, but it would be wonderful to have his thoughts and feelings in writing, to read whenever I wanted.

Say All the Unspoken Things is a gem, and it's a book that you'll want to share with others. Best of all, Sower's letters remind us that we are deeply loved by our Heavenly Father.

I received a copy of this book from FrontGate Media. There was no obligation for a favorable review. These are my own thoughts.
