Review of Wise Men Say by Wendy Burke

Wise Men Say

Emmy is in love with a dead man. According to her sister anyway. Her fiancee has been missing in action for 20 years. Something inside her makes her believe that he is still out there and until they bring her his body, he will stay alive in her heart. Her son now in the military himself, helps her when he can. She couldn't be more proud. She misses him daily and cries often for his return, even after 20 years. She has never given up hope. He was the love of her life and she pushes on and has fun with her niece but waits for his return.

Even though this one was short. Talk about a build up. You know who is gonna show and about what is going to happen but I still cried. Miss Burke gets you to feel what and how intense Emmy's love is for him. This is one book I really wish had been longer. Even though I really enjoyed it, Miss Burke could have made this one into a full book. Going through Emmy's life and showing there love through remembering. Showing bits and pieces of his life, what he goes through and what he remembers and thinks about at the worst of times. I would read that book in a heartbeat. I would watch that movie in a heartbeat! So I did really enjoy this book, but I wanted more from this book. I would read this author again  anytime!


  1. Book sounds very interesting. Look forward to reading it.

  2. This sounds intriguing. Haven't read anything by either author.
