The Things We Need To Say

The Things We Need To Say

The Things We Need to Say
Sometimes the things we never say are the most important.
Fran loves Will with all her heart. They had a whirlwind romance, a perfect marriage and a wonderful life. Until everything changed. Now Fran needs to find her way again and teaching a yoga retreat in Spain offers her just that. Leaving behind a broken marriage she has some very important decisions to make.
Will needs his wife, he needs her to open up to him if they’re to ever return to the ways things once were. But he may have damaged any possibility he had of mending their relationship and now Fran is in Spain and Will is alone.
As both Fran and Will begin to let go of a life that could have been, fate may just find a way of bringing them back together.
 Perfect for fans of Katie Marsh, Amanda Prowse and Sheila O’Flanagan

This has everything that you don't need in a marriage.
Affairs, lies, infertility, lack of honesty and being open about your thoughts and feelings and sharing them.

I felt so bad for the pair of them. 
They were such a great couple, then the not being able to have a child curled herself into a ball, loosing her Mother was also in the mix.
Its very hard to judge another for withdrawing as we all deal with trauma and hardship in different ways and not necessarily with the one you should be communicating with. 

I could understand Will wandering for attention on the night they both argued., not saying I condone it, but I understand why it happened.

When Fran finds out about the fling he had she is more than devastated.

She had a Yoga retreat planned so she headed off without looking back. 
Us the reader are left wondering if she will return and so is Will.

The story is told in both viewpoints and also goes back in time, you get the whole big picture of their relationship.

So well written, so sensitively put and with the most basic of emotional behaviour raw and open wide for all to see and judge.

I loved it.

Author Bio
Rachel Burton has been making up stories since she first learned to talk. After many false starts she finally made one up that was worth writing down.

After graduating with a degree in Classics and another in English, she didn't really know what to do when she grew up. She has worked as a waitress, a paralegal and a yoga teacher.

She has spent most of her life between Cambridge and London but now lives in Leeds with her boyfriend and three cats. The main loves of her life are The Beatles and very tall romantic heroes.

Her debut, The Many Colours of Us, was an Amazon Kindle bestseller. Her second novel, The Things We Need to to Say, is released on 11 May 2018. She is currently working on her third novel in which the heroine follows the love of her life to live in a city in northern England. It has no autobiographical elements at all.....maybe.

Find her on Twitter & Instagram as @bookish_yogi or search Facebook for Rachel Burton Author. She is always happy to talk books, writing, music, cats and how the weather in Yorkshire is rubbish. She is mostly dreaming of her next holiday....
