The Things We Cannot Say


“The Things We Cannot Say” by Kelly Rimmer is a poignant historical fiction novel that alternates between two timelines and two protagonists, exploring themes of love, sacrifice, and the enduring power of family bonds.

In one timeline, we follow Alina Dziak, a young woman living in Poland during World War II. Alina is determined to protect her family as the Nazis invade her homeland. Amidst the chaos of war, she finds herself facing impossible choices and sacrifices, all while holding onto hope for a better future.

In the other timeline, we meet Alice, a contemporary woman who is grappling with her own challenges. Alice’s beloved grandmother, suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, shares a mysterious request with her granddaughter: to return to Poland and uncover a long-held family secret. As Alice embarks on a journey to unravel the truth, she discovers unexpected connections to her grandmother’s past and finds herself confronting her own fears and insecurities along the way.

Through both Alina and Alice’s perspectives, “The Things We Cannot Say” explores the profound impact of war and trauma on individuals and families across generations. It delves into the complexities of identity, memory, and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

As the two timelines converge, Rimmer weaves a moving narrative that highlights the importance of confronting the past, embracing the present, and finding strength in the ties that bind us together. “The Things We Cannot Say” is a gripping tale of love, loss, and the enduring power of storytelling to heal and inspire.
