Everything She Didn't Say by Jane Kirkpatrick

In 1911, Carrie Strahorn wrote a series of books that detailed her life and experiences as a woman out west. In 2018, Jane Kirkpatrick read between the lines of Carrie's memoir and told the things she didn't say the first time around. Kirkpatrick's work is based on Carrie's true story and it is absolutely fascinating.

Carrie's life was one of great adventure and devotion to family, but it didn't come without challenges and hardships. As a wife to a railroad husband, Carrie traveled constantly as she supported her husband's dream. She did things that a lot of women wouldn't dare to and charmed many with her determined and hospitable spirit. Carrie was also a very talented writer as she proves in the writings that inspired this book. Jane Kirkpatrick has done an excellent job of showcasing this important historical figure and her contributions to the growth and development of the west as we know it now. Be sure to read to the very end of the book for more insight and important facts about this true tale. Thank you to Revell for sending me this book to review!
