"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.
“In this moving and captivating novel, Kristina Riggle explores with depth and honesty the question of how we define a family, and the myriad ways we all seek to shed our difficult pasts. 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, AFTER YOU
