In 1911, Carrie Strahorn wrote a memoir entitled Fifteen Thousand Miles by Stage, which shared some of the most exciting events of twenty-five years of traveling and shaping the West with her husband, Robert Strahorn, a railroad promoter, investor, and writer. Everything She Didn’t Say imagines Carrie nearly ten years later as she decides to write down what was really on her mind during those adventurous nomadic years. Kirkpatrick’s masterful, rich imagination draws out the emotions of living—the laughter and pain, the love and loss—to give readers a window not only into the past but into their own conflicted hearts. Booklist states “Kirkpatrick is an unwavering pillar in historical fiction, showcasing the power of her meticulously researched and richly rendered details.” Everything She Didn’t Say is a testament to these words.
