From the Editor

Whenever I’m in a reading slump, I reach for historical fiction. I love reading about the past and the people who shaped the world we live in today. No matter if the underlying plot is mystery, romance, or saga, I’m swept away by the story all while learning. Two birds, one stone!

This is what I adored about The Things We Don’t Say. In a novel loosely based on the renowned English artists’ circle Bloomsbury group, Ella Carey masterfully moves between generations to tell a riveting tale of a historical movement through the eyes of two women fiercely determined to hold on to their ideals.

Before I read the book I had a somewhat fuzzy, glorified picture of the Bloomsbury group. I knew they were considered bohemians and I knew that many groundbreaking artists and writers came out of the movement, but I didn’t know much more than that. In Carey’s deft hands, I was not just absorbed in the characters’ loves and losses; I was completely transported to the rich and heady atmosphere of the salons of London and France in the 1910s and ’20s. Had Carey not written this sumptuous novel, I would have never known that much of the freedom of expression I so value today is thanks to forward-thinking women like those in The Things We Don’t Say.

Educated? Check. Entertained? Double check.

Product Description

A beguiling painting holds the secrets of a woman’s past and calls into question everything she thought she knew about the man she loved…

Nearly sixty years ago, renowned London artist Patrick Adams painted his most famous work: a portrait of his beloved Emma Temple, a fellow bohemian with whom he shared his life. Years after Patrick’s death, ninety-year-old Emma still has the painting hanging over her bed at their country home as a testament to their love.

To Emma’s granddaughter, Laura, the portrait is also a symbol of so much to come. The masterpiece is serving as collateral to pay Laura’s tuition at a prestigious music school. Then the impossible happens when an appraiser claims the painting is a fraud. For Laura, the accusation jeopardizes her future. For Emma, it casts doubt on everything she believed about her relationship with Patrick. Laura is determined to prove that Patrick did indeed paint the portrait. Both her grandmother’s and Patrick’s legacies are worth fighting for.

As the stories of two women entwine, it’s time for Emma to summon up the past—even at the risk of revealing its unspoken secrets.
