The Things We Knew review Ö 109 A can't miss story of family and lies secrets and repressed memories set against the stunning backdrop of NantucketAn exceptional and poignant escape to Nantucket Kathi MaciasLynette Carlisle witnessed her mother's death twelve years ago But her memory only speaks through nightmares Her four older siblings each left their Nantucket home as soon as they were able never speaking of that tragic dayLynette alone stays with their father on the island and when it becomes clear they are losing him to Alzheimer's she calls her siblings home each of them bringing along their own secrets They aren't the only ones returning to 1 First of all jerk guy alert Lynette s siblings have gone about their own lives leaving her to care for her ailing father and a family home that is tumbling down around her ears She didn t finish college and her father wanders from Alzheimer s and she can t get than a part time job When her siblings come back and she has some help with her dad she gets another job I didn t understand why she felt the need to lie about it until the scene where her brother and boyfriend realize she s working there march in at closing time slam her tray to one side and yank her apron off her before marching her out and forbidding her to work there again I think my mouth was hanging open This is not appropriate And even later they didn t have the decency to apologize and she didn t try to go back and work there again she gave in2 Content Affair child out of wedlock coarse speech swearing Yes most not all swears are mentioned as choice words or she swore but some remain And then all the others like butt crap holy crap freakin and gosh Lots and lots of drinking and multiple alcoholics3 Writing style I counted 7 POVs enough to lose track of who was who and feel disconnected from the POV characters4 Inspirational at best mentions of God faith and church attendance No mention of Jesussalvation as an answer to life but several mentions of counselors as a help to deal with past issues Fairly generic message and the hero has real doubts about God The missionary brother who s portrayed as a bit of a fanatic hardly mentions God or faith at all Mentions that Lynette has all the faith in the family but hers is getting stale as wellOverall just a mess I really enjoyed the first 75 pages but after that it was like a soap opera and all the drama lost me

The Things We Knew review Ö 109 The island their childhood neighbor Nick comes home to his own family drama never expecting a Carlisle family reunion As Lynette spends time with Nick she suspects he knows about their mother's death than he lets onWith summer storms raging around them and their father speaking and of their mother's death the Carlisle siblings must face the truths threatening to surface And these truths will either restore their shattered relationships or separate the siblings foreverA poignant multi faceted novel that pulled me in deeper with every turned page The Things We Knew so adeptly explores the power of truth and its ability Catherine West s latest novel The Things We Knew is one of those books that gripped me from the first page to the last and when I had finished the last word I sat and soaked it all inThe Things We Knew is blessed with a whole cast of compelling characters with strong personalities the best and the worst of family in all its ragged glory And while I was of course drawn to the relationship between Lynnie and Nick perhaps the character that lodged the deepest in my heart is Gray Lynette s brother Gray the troubled rock star is at times in the story both the strongest and the weakest member of the family As a matter of fact that could be said about each of the Carlisle siblings All of them harboring secrets all of them fighting their own separate battles emphasis on separate but each one gets a moment where they stand strong for the others Or in spite of the others But Gray stayed with me possibly because out of all the siblings I believe he is the deepest thinker and as such his scenes were some of the most touching and the most heartbreaking I would love to see him get his own story at some point Perhaps a preuel or even a follow up novelThe intricacies of The Things We Knew are unpacked layer by layer as Catherine West feeds us just the right amount for us to absorb before offering a bit She doesn t sugarcoat the dysfunction but there is light on every page Emotions run high tensions run high and regret runs high But faith and mercy and GRACE run higher stillAnd that is the exuisite beauty of Catherine West s latest novel While neither faith nor mercy nor grace come easy for the Carlisle siblings these ARE the things they knew before their family became so fractured their own lives so dysfunctional These are the things they slowly come to know againBottom Line The Things We Knew is than a story of family drama to tug at the heartstrings It s than a mystery to unwrap It s than a romance to savor It s than a masterfully written piece of fiction It is in fact all of those but it is also a story rich with healing and honesty and hope It is a novel that will hold you captive until you ve finished the last word and one which will linger in your heart long after This should be on everyone s summer reading list Or fall reading list Or MUST READ SOON reading list Or all of the above Keep some tissues handy but be prepared to smile and even laugh too Most of all be prepared to fall in love with Nantucket with the Carlisle family and with Catherine WestI received a copy of this book in exchange for only my honest reviewRead my full review at Reading Is My SuperPower
