Imbued with warmth, The Things We Left Unsaid is a life-affirming read which explores the ways in which it is the people we love the most who truly shape us. Fans of Ruth Hogan, Jojo Moyes and Ruth Jones will be captivated by Emma Kennedy’s first women’s fiction novel.
With her wedding cancelled moments before it was due to start and her father’s passing still casting a shadow, Rachel is back in her old family home in Oxfordshire with her mother, Eleanor, just as her new life should be beginning.
Fifty years earlier at the dawn of the swinging sixties, eighteen-year-old Eleanor leaves the safety of that same family home to study at Chelsea School of Art. There she discovers life in all its forms and what it is to find love – and lose it.
When Eleanor dies suddenly, Rachel is unable to shake the memory of the many things left unsaid. Stumbling upon a mysterious keepsake hidden among Eleanor’s possessions, Rachel begins to unravel a trail that will lead to a secret her mother kept close – bringing painful truths to light that transform everything she thought she knew about herself and her family.
