Things We Never Say Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Sheila O'Flanagan's enthralling best seller Things We Never Say is a must-listen for fans of Marian Keyes and Veronica Henry.
The things we never say:
A daughter doesn't say how she feels about the past....
A husband is afraid to say that selling the house his wife loves is the only option....
A woman hasn't said that even though they live thousands of miles apart, this man is always on her mind....
If those things were said, the results could be life-changing. As Abbey - and a whole family she knew nothing of - are about to find out in this warm-hearted, thought-provoking and touching novel.

I have read many of her books 📚 and I know I won't be disappointed.
I definitely recommend that you read this book 📖 yo will love it.
Even though heroine Abbey Andersen lives in San Francisco, her ancestors are Irish and the book tells the story about Abbey and her mother Ellen's unexpected meeting with their Irish family.
In short. Ellen was adopted by an American couple as a baby. In his old age her birth father, widower Fred Fitzpatrick, wants to do right by the baby daughter he abandoned fifty years ago and hires an investigator to trace her in America. As Ellen cannot be easily reached, the investigator meets her daughter Abbey who accepts Fred's invitation to visit him in Ireland. Shortly after they are introduced, Fred dies from a heart attack and Abbey's world is suddenly turned upside down.
In his marriage Fred has three children who all expect to inherit his substantial estate. They are all in financial trouble and need the money badly. So imagine the chock and anger when it appears that Fred has included Ellen and Abbey in his will. And not only with a mere pittance.....
There is a lot to learn about the human character in this book. Most of it maybe not entirely new, but interesting variations of well known thruths. And as always when a will appears, both expected and unexpected things happen.
The many and different characters are well described. Abbey is by far the most likeable and interesting, but also her "half-aunts" Suzanne, Zoey and Lisette are women who are strong and capable. Especially Zoey made me smile, especially in what should have been entirely awkward situations.
It all ends well and I think, to most readers' satisfaction. And perhaps there is a little something for us all to learn both about life, happiness and especially money!
Praise for Sheila O'Flanagan, an excellent story teller.
