Our November book choice is The Words We Whisper by Mary Ellen Taylor.
As a hospice nurse, Zara Mitchell has already seen more death than most people will experience in a lifetime. When her older sister asks her to help care for their ailing grandmother, Zara agrees – despite strained family relationships.
Though pale and tired, Nonna has lost none of her sharp mind. She’s fixated on finding something long forgotten and she immediately puts Zara to work cleaning out the attic. Unexpectedly, amid the tedium of sifting through knick-knacks and heirlooms, Zara also reconnects with a man she’s attracted to but whose complicated past makes romance seem impossible.
Zara finds what Nonna was looking for: a wooden chest, an emerald brooch, a leather-bound journal. As she immerses herself in stories of heroism and loss set against the backdrop of war-torn Italy in 1943, Zara finds answers to questions she didn’t know she had. And they change everything she thinks she knows about love, regret, and seizing the day.
