Book Review: More Than Words Can Say

Title: More Than Words Can Say
Written By: Karen Witemeyer
Genre: Christian Western Romance
Recommended Ages: 16 & up


I’ve loved Karen’s books for some time. But this one is different. In a good way, though. I loved it! The way Karen handled Abigail’s character and her uniqueness was well done.

Characters: 1/1

I loved them all. I had read about Zach in a previous book and really enjoyed getting to know him better in this book. Add to that Abigail and Rosie and you have the perfect combination. Abigail’s character was well developed and fit perfectly with everything she did.

Dialogue: 1/1

The dialogue was period appropriate and I loved all the banter between the characters. When Abigail does her big reveal, I thought everything said was realistic and emotionally impactful.

Plot/storyline: 1/1

I loved the plot, especially the reasons why everything was happening. The revelations of all the secrets were well done. The plot was more complex than some of Karen’s books and I appreciated that.

Overall writing quality: 1/1

The book was well-written and the editing was very good. I didn’t notice any typos or grammatical problems.

Un-put-down-ability: 1/1

I had to put the book down a few times because of sleep. But then I finally had a couple of hours to read on a Sunday morning and I took them! I didn’t put the book down and I’m glad I didn’t have to because the last half gets extra super interesting to the point where putting the book down is nearly impossible. I even managed to make my husband’s breakfast while I read it.

Conclusion: 5/5

There are a couple of things that are slightly on the mature side, but are handled well in this book. I recommend 15 & up because of those few things, but use your own discretion. If you are looking for a fun book to read that has unique characters, check out this one.

Note: I received a free paperback from the publisher. I was not under an compulsion to write a review whether positive or negative.
