An enchanting story about love and redemption, More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer is a triumphant follow-up companion to her previous novel, Letters to the Lost. It’s just as addictive, and just as delightful, but this time turning the spotlight on a new pair of characters.
Rev Fletcher is battling the demons of his past. But with loving adoptive parents by his side, he’s managed to keep them at bay…until he gets a letter from his abusive father and the trauma of his childhood comes hurtling back.
Emma Blue spends her time perfecting the computer game she built from scratch, rather than facing her parents’ crumbling marriage. She can solve any problem with the right code, but when an online troll’s harassment escalates, she’s truly afraid.
When Rev and Emma meet, they both long to lift the burden of their secrets and bond instantly over their shared turmoil. But when their situations turn dangerous, their trust in each other will be tested in ways they never expected. This must-read story will once again have readers falling for Brigid Kemmerer’s emotional storytelling.
When I read Letters to the Lost last year, I couldn’t put it down — and the exact same thing happened again when I picked up More Than We Can Tell. This compulsively readable story about family, finding yourself, and love is impossible to put down.
Like most readers, I fell in love with Rev when he showed up in Letters to the Lost. Finally, he gets his turn in the spotlight, along with new character Emma Blue. Kemmerer brilliantly weaves together two seemingly unconnected plot lines through their connection — and much like its predecessor, what this book does so well is offer up really engaging individual story lines for each character — which just gets even more compelling when they meet and begin to fall in love.
This is a MUST READ for anyone who loved Letters to the Lost — but as a companion story, it can be read independently, and stands on its own. (So if you haven’t read Letters to the Lost, you can still read this one and be just fine.)
More Than We Can Tell is the perfect combination in YA contemporary fiction: delightful characters, a charming love story you can root for, well-developed story lines, and a winning blend of heart, humor, and drama. This fantastic book is in stores March 6th.
