    Wow! What a wonderful book.I wasn't sure I would like this book because of the subject matter of child abuse, but the author did a wonderful job of telling the story without sensationalizing. The truth is horrible enough!The story of 2 people who needed what each other had and the Providence of God is beautifully told.This book will stay with me forever.

  • Paula Vince

    What I loved about this book is the underlying proof that a person's significance and 'success' does not hinge upon making a difference to many people. Being there for just one person is enough to change everything.The story moves from the point of view of one of the main female protagonists to the other. Strangers at the start, they come to mean everything to each other. Sierra is a woman in her early 30s who lives with intense guilt over some lifestyle choices she made in her past which she's [...]

    It isn't often you find such a tender book dealing with such an evil topic. It was these two extremes that first griped me and then kept me reading. First there is Kaylee, a twelve year old girl abandoned by her mother and left in the car of a boyfriend that sexually abuses her. Then there is Sierra, struggling to get past the pain of loosing her nine day old daughter several years before.When these two meet and share a sweet friendship, they begin to identify their enormous loss, pain and hurt [...]

    Story Description:I collect words. I keep them in a box in my mind…I’d like to keep them in a real box, something pretty, maybe a shoe box covered with flowered wrapping paper. Whenever I wanted, I’d open the box and pick up the papers, reading and feeling the words all at once. Then I could hide the box. But the words are safer in my mind. There, he can’t take them. Ten-year-old Kaylee Wren doesn’t speak. Not since her drug-addled mother walked away, leaving her in a remote cabin nest [...]

  • Michelle

    Well, this book left me a little speechless. Funny since it's about words, right? I loved the quirky way the main character, Kaylee, was obsessed with words as a way of coping with stress, yet the lack of words (speech) due to her trauma was a large obstacle in her life. Some parts of the story reminded me a little of the movie Nell, starring Jodie Foster. But this novel had a unique angle to it that I haven't seen in many books -- especially not Christian books. At first I was a bit overwhelmed [...]

  • Katie

    Words took me for an emotional, heart-wrenching, thought-provoking journey. While this book touched on delicate subjects – sexual abuse and drug addictions – it breathed truth and honesty. Ginny wrote with such passion that I connect with Kaylee and Sierra almost instantly. They were so real. The emotional turmoil that Kaylee experienced was so well described it grabbed my heart. Having six sisters that are ten or younger, I can’t imagine one of them enduring what Kaylee endured. You can [...]

    A NovelGinny L. Yttrup2011B & H BooksFiction/Christian/GeneralReviewed by Cindy LovenWOW! This book is not casual reading material. It does need to be said that this book deals with mature subject material. However the sad thing is mature subject material incidents, do not always apply to adults only. A story of redemption, a story of the grace of God and a story of the horrors of drugs, child pornography and child molestation. You may ask yourself, how does a story of this ramifications hav [...]

    God loves us not because of who we are, but because of who He is. What a concept!! Love is more that just the definition of word. Sierra and Kaylee are going to find out what God's love can do. Kaylee is 10 years old and is living in the most worst situation imaginable. Someone is hurting her and there is no one she can turn to for help. Sierra is a woman who has been living in the grips of a tragedy for 12 years. One day would bring them together. That one day's chance meeting would change both [...]

  • Iola

    Words is a difficult read because it's dealing with some serious subject matter, but it's worth the effort. It's Ginny Yttrup's debut novel, and won her two Christy award nominations (and one win), an honour that is entirely deserved." an innocent child paid the price for others' poor choices--just like Christ, who was also completely innocent, paid the price for my choices".The innocent child is 10year-old Kaylee, who lives in a remote cabin with her mother's ex-boyfriend, her mother having aba [...]

  • Kara

    A little bit heavy in Christian beliefs for me but overall a good book.

  • Kristi (Books and Needlepoint)

    About the Book: Kaylee has been left with Jack, an abusive boyfriend of her mothers. She is only 10 years old and believes Jack when he tells her she can't leave as her mother will be back to get her sometime. She is repeatedly molested by him and has stopped speaking because of the trauma. Instead, she collects words in her head - words that she finds in a dictionary that she and her mother used to look at together.Jack leaves Kaylee alone for long portions of the day, and she is pretty good at [...]

  • CatherineMorland

    How the heck I read this without crying, I'm not sure. This book touched me in so many different ways. I hate abuse in any form, but when it happens to innocent children, it's just cruel. And I wonder why it has to happen.The opening paragraph is beautiful but haunting: "I collect words. I keep them in a box in my mind. I'd like to keep them in a real box, something pretty, maybe a shoe box covered with flowered wrapping paper. Whenever I wanted, I'd open the box and pick up the papers, reading [...]

  • Lori Twichell

    When I saw what this book was about, I wasn’t sure that I wanted to read it. It sat on my stack of books mocking me. Being a writer and an avid reader, I love words, so the title and the cover drew me, but each time I picked it up, I wondered if it would be too heavy for me to enjoy. Though I’ve been a reader all my life, I’m a mom first. When a child is injured or deliberately hurt, it’s difficult for me to read. But I heard such great and beautiful things (and I got a couple of copies [...]

  • Jan Holmes

    This is a book I just grabbed from the library new book shelf (along with two others) for a cold and rainy weekend. I just read the first few sentences on the back cover and thought it sounded like a great book,that night as I put the book down to go to sleep I thought again it was a great book. The next morning I read the rest of the back cover to see what was coming and saw that it mentioned that the characters discover the healing mercy of the Word- Jesus Christ. I am not a religous person in [...]

  • Libby

    Excellent. A very hard subject- sexual abuse, parental abandonment, drug addiction and their effect on one little girl but yet there is healing in the pages too and you are left with hope. It will not be an easy read but one, in my opinion, well worth your time and possibly life changing- heart changing

  • Ruth

    This book was simply wonderful. The author achieved success in so many ways with this book. It is touching, and says so much about healing, and the transforming power of loved words. I wish I could buy you all a copy! READ IT.

  • Charlie Bunch

    Words was an amazing book that really shows you how things can turn around again in your life. It had a heart warming story about a young girl who had an awful life. An older woman with a past of her own, finds her. She finds her faith through this young girl. This is a must read!

  • Wende Sheets

    WOW!!! What a wonderful powerful book!!! I picked this up last night n didn't start it till this evening.I finished it 5 hours later! I just could not put it down! This is one that will be n my heart for along time!!!

  • Karla

    A beautiful, difficult, gut retching story.

  • Kim Stokely

    Happened across this book at the library and on a whim, picked it up. I'm glad I did. Although the subject matter was difficult, the author handled it without being graphic. I thought Kaylee was intricately drawn and immensely engaging. Sierra was also relatable and intriguing. The only time the plot seemed forced was in the addition of the love interest. It was superficial and unnecessary to the overall story. That was a minor flaw to an otherwise very moving story of forgiveness and redemption [...]

  • Teresa Lindamood

    Reading this book was heartbreaking because of the abuse this child went through, not only at the hands of the man her mother left her with but the waiting for her mother to return to get her. But then to have someone care about her welfare and bring her into her home and show her the love she deserved was just wonderful. I will say there were some slow reading parts to it and a little bit on the religious side. But overall I would recommend this book.

  • Tracie Berghaus

    I enjoyed this book. The story is told from the perspectives of the main characters and the author does a good job of representing their experiences and emotions. I really appreciated that this book unashamedly proclaimed the life saving, redemptive message of the Gospel and Jesus love for all mankind. I loved the collecting of words and how the author weaves them into the story.

  • Jennifer

    This is the best book I've read so far this year. I'm both impressed and jealous that a debut novel is written so beautifully. I believe you don't have to have experienced the trauma of sexual abuse to appreciate this book. It's both well written and thoughtful.

  • Loren Norris

    Very well written. Great for people that are recovering from a trauma or bad childhood or just need a little forgiveness and understanding in their life. It got a little too religious for me at the end but overall it was better than I expected from a Christian fiction book

  • NancyPretty

    Loved that this Christian book did not shy away from real evils in this world. Good clear message that Jesus is love and with that knowledge and comfort you can move forward. The book shows that its not easy and there is heartbreak, but always trust and believe.

  • Sam Warner


  • Betty Jean

    Nice little story with a redemptive message. Nothing surprising here, still it provides an easy read with a happy ending, a breather between heavier works.

  • Melanie

    I liked the beginning of the book quite a bit, but towards the end it became the clique christian novel. That's why the 4 star rather than 5.

  • Rick

    Let me set the record straight. I read. A lot! Not only do I read a lot, I am a GUY that reads a lot. It can be difficult, at times, for me to find something that I think that I would enjoy reading. Since I run the library for my church, I want to be well-versed in the books that I read so that I can make educated recommendations to my patrons that “are just looking for that right book”. Sometimes, though, I can’t seem to find just that right book for me to read. I was recently in Chicago [...]

  • Sally906

    WORDS is a debut novel based around the harrowing subject of child abuse. Despite the gritty subject the book is an absolutely riveting read. Kaylee is just ten and does not speak. She is living in a remote hut nestled among towering redwoods, left there alone with a cruel and abusive man, Jack, when her mother went out one day and never returned. The poor child believes Jack when he tells her she can't leave the hut as her mother will be back to get her sometime. The only way that Kaylee can co [...]
