"Things We Didn't Say is impossible to put down, and even harder to let go of."
--Julie Buxbaum, author of The Opposite of Love

Kristina Riggle's star continues to rise. Tiffany Baker, the New York Times bestselling author of The Little Giant of Aberdeen County, says that Riggle, "writes women's fiction with soul." In her novel Things We Didn't Say, the acclaimed author of Real Life & Liars and The Life You've Imagined (an Indie Next Notable Book) explores the messiness of life's love stories, especially those involving teenage almost-stepchildren, a unreliable ex-wife, and the words no parent ever wants to hear: "Your child is missing." A poignant, honest, and unforgettable novel that fans of Katrina Kittle and Elin Hildenbrand will take into their hearts, Things We Didn't Say is exactly the sort of well-written, complex relationships story that women love to read, discuss, and share with their friends.

Back cover copy

What goes unsaid can sometimes speak the loudest . . .

What makes up a family? For Casey it's sharing a house with her fiance, Michael, and his three children, whom she intends to nurture more than she ever took care of herself. But Casey's plans have come undone. Michael's silences have grown unfathomable and deep. His daughter Angel seethes as only a teenage girl can, while the wide-eyed youngest, Jewel, quietly takes it all in.

Then Michael's son, Dylan, runs off, and the kids' mother, a woman never afraid to say what she thinks, noisily barges into the home. That's when Casey decides that the silences can no longer continue. She must begin speaking the words no one else can say. She'll have to dig up secrets--including her own--uncovering the hurts, and begin the healing that is long overdue. And it all starts with just a few tentative words. . . .
