Words Never Spoken is a powerful account of ambition and hope, despair, and rejuvenation and introduces its subject with a succinct observation of the process that receives deeper inspection in chapters to follow: "I wanted what every girl wants: to fall in love and live happily ever after. But after one failed marriage and with forty quickly approaching, I had given up."

While many stories chronicle this same process, what sets Words Never Spoken apart from most others is its attention to rend

After reading a different book from this outstanding author, I shared a brutal experience from my own past- and the empathy I felt for both the broken offender and survivor.

This whole powerful collection encourages reflection- and self challenge.

It touches readers in a visceral way.

If you are or know a wounded healer, if you are or know someone working through or ahead after a difficult set of experiences, read on - if you are up for the challenge.

Much grittier than a #metoo - more reminiscen

I can’t say enough how grateful I am to have received a copy of this book. It took me awhile to read it because it’s not light material. Words Never Spoken talks about things that people don’t believe happen in real life or that they could never imagine touching their perfect lives. This spoken word poetry book is raw, real, and heartbreaking. It opened old wounds that I had forgotten about, BUT it also helped to heal them. I found strength and courage. I found a friend and confidant through the ...more

Words Never Spoken by Cheryl Denise Bannerman is a book filled with emotion. The author, I believe, is a woman that has been hurt and went through a lot but found her way and wants to empower others through her words. I'm glad I read it and recommend it to all. ...more

This poetry book follows a narrative format highlighting common issues in the black community. Typical themes of infidelity, drug abuse, lust and religion dictate the poems that lead a fictitious story. The language, idioms and scenery cater for an audience well versed in this environment. However, due to the universal nature of the themes it can appeal to all.

The poems, in general, follow a 3 line stanza format with each line being short with a coupled end rhyme. This makes the pacing fast wit
