Descrizione

In 1942, Europe remains in the relentless grip of war. Just beyond the tents of the Russian refugee camp she calls home, a young woman speaks her wedding vows. It’s a decision that will alter her destiny...and it’s a lie that will remain buried until the next century.

Since she was nine years old, Alina Dziak knew she would marry her best friend, Tomasz. Now 15 and engaged, Alina is unconcerned by reports of Nazi soldiers at the Polish border, believing her neighbors that they pose no real threat, and dreams instead of the day Tomasz returns from college in Warsaw so they can be married. But little by little, injustice by brutal injustice, the Nazi occupation takes hold, and Alina’s tiny rural village, its families, are divided by fear and hate. Then, as the fabric of their lives is slowly picked apart, Tomasz disappears. Where Alina used to measure time between visits from her beloved, now, she measures the spaces between hope and despair, waiting for word from Tomasz and avoiding the attentions of the soldiers who patrol her parents’ farm. But for now, even deafening silence is preferable to grief.

Slipping between Nazi-occupied Poland and the frenetic pace of modern life, Kelly Rimmer creates an emotional and finely wrought narrative that weaves together two women’s stories into a tapestry of perseverance, loyalty, love, and honor. The Things We Cannot Say is an unshakable reminder of the devastation when truth is silenced...and how it can take a lifetime to find our voice before we learn to trust it.

    I was looking for a book to read set in WWII, and this was suggested. It is so well written I felt I was actually in Poland at parts. Particularly interesting to me as my father’s side is from Poland and we lost several family members during to war. But this family’s story is both heartbreaking and heart warming. I felt I knew all the members.

    This book sucked me in and warmed my heart. I began reading it and when I couldn’t take it home, it was imperative to find out what would happen, so I found this audiobook. The narrator does a great job (to my ears) with accents and inflection. This story was well balanced emotionally, and the highs and lows were fascinating. It was a bit predictable, and the wording was sometimes repetitive, but I thoroughly enjoyed the tale Even once I knew where it was going, I was grateful to be drawn along to the lovely and complete ending. Well worth the time spent reading and listening to it.
