    One thought on “Words Heard in Silence”

    1. Words Heard in Silence – 3 and ½ stars . I read the on line version. It started out well, with interesting characters and plot. Words Heard in Silence is well written but needed editing for the repetitive details and plot point reminders, and some side plots could have been removed, probably due to the fact it was most likely posted a chapter at a time. I think it would have been good as 2 novels, with more time spent with the characters after the war. Overall, a fun read, a little melodramat [...]

    2. 3.5 stars. It has likable characters, lovely dialogues and storylines. A lot of things i find them irrelevant but some people may like all the details. It takes some patience to go through the entire story though.

    3. I read the original fanfic version of this a long time ago. It's one of my favorite historical FF. Someone should publish this in ebook format!

    4. I liked the story, glad I read it. (view spoiler)[Although I would have liked to see more of charlie's female side. The way it was now it is no f/f story but a m/f story. (hide spoiler)]This is not one I will read again quickly.

    5. OkeeDiawali dengan bagus, pacing okeTapi kenapa 3/4 akhir Charlie-nya jadi nyebelin banget??Dua bintang untukmu, karena karakternya nggak terlalu loveable. Nggak konstan, tepatnya.

    6. Disappointing.A friend convinced me that I simply HAD to read this book. Obviously this friend doesn't know me as well as I believed. Rather dull. Long on unnecessary details and people. The ideal of the story was fine but taken to extremes by the writers. So very many unnecessary descriptions of just about everything and everyone. Ridiculously unbelievable. The finest character in the book, Elizabeth, should have been the main character. Her role, her background, intelligence, and personality m [...]

    7. Heartwarming Historical Romance, 4.5 StarsThis is a very well written, heartwarming historical romance set during the end of the civil war. The authors did a great job of integrating fictional characters with well known real characters and events, offering a unique perspective to this well known era in history. It is highly engaging, with richly detailed main and secondary characters. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it.

    8. I enjoy a good love story, but Words Heard In Silence is just too happy. I tried, I really tried to enjoy this book. It seemed a great premis, but I made it 40% through and I can't keep going. I found myself flipping pages, reading a couple sentences, flipping a few more pages, and reading a couple more sentences.Charlie is the (too) perfect human specimen and Rebecca is a smitten kitten; they love each other deeply, but they are both skittish. Charlie has been hiding his secret for many years, [...]

    9. Words fail me!This book is one of the most interesting and passionate books I have ever read. I've read many including many off the classics. But this book I feel was written from the heart. The American civil war, like all wars are damaging beyond recognition. But amongst the brutality and devastation relationships are formed and nurtured. Both love and friendship blossomed between the excellent characters. This book evoked many different emotions, not least happiness and sadness at the same ti [...]

    10. Historical Romance does not do it justice.Excellent story, excellent characters. A little bit pat in places, but overall a wonderful read. Having read this book prior to publication, I had been looking for a copy for many years. Thanks to ebooks, I was able to revisit this story. I have also learned there are sequels that I am eager to read as well.

    11. Wow. I hardly know where to begin! Charlotte/Charlie Redmond and Rebecca Gaines are spectacular characters. The book is enormous, richly detailed, and extremely well researched. I didn't know if I would like a book set in the Civil War, but I'm so glad I gave this book a chance! I'm starting Book 2 tomorrow!

    12. Enjoyed the characters very much. Normally I don't listen to books, but I was able to with this one and I actually believe that helped me enjoy the story more. Don't ask me to explain how I came to that conclusion, but it makes sense to me. I wanted to crawl in the book and smack Charlie, thank you Elizabeth, for kicking him in the ass.

    13. Loved this book.I loved this book. I could not put it down. It reminds me of 'Bittersweet' by Nevada Barr. Dealing w/ the subject of women disguised as men in order to live with another woman. Please continue this story.

    14. Words heard in silenceGreat epic and love story of the civil war period with a wonderful twist. This story will fill your heart with love and faith along the way. Do not be afraid to read it completely.

    15. A really good book that I would have easily given four stars to except for the overdone romance. Am on the second book now and it doesn't seem to have the same fault. I guess the author just wanted to make sure we knew our two main characters, Rebecca and Charlie, were truly in love.

    16. One of my favourite novels. Superbly written by T. Novan and Taylor Rickard.Just love Charlie and Rebecca.

    17. awesome I picked this up and wasn't able to put it down. Many night I bargained with 5am vs another chapter. Real feel good and wonderful read. Totes recommend.

    18. Good story A friend suggested this book and I wasn't disappointed. The story pulls you in. Already purchased part 2 & 3.

    19. I've read this book many times and still love it. The Civil War is one of my favorite times in history. Written well with few typos. I've the sequel on the short list.
