I finished this book last night and it was a sweet and inspiring book. I checked this book out a few weeks ago and read the back of the book, I liked the idea of a husband and wife writing to each other every week. Preston and I actually started it three weeks ago and and now we send each other an email sometime during the day every Wednesday. I have really enjoyed it and I hope we keep it up as long as Jack and Laurel, the letter writers from Jason F Wright's newest book, THE WEDNESDAY LETTERS. A story of forgiveness, acceptance, charity and love. Read it...it's a great quick read that inspired me to love my husband and children the way Jack and Laurel loved each other.
Jack and Laurel have been married for 39 years. They've lived a good life and appear to have had the perfect marriage. With his wife cradled in his arms, and before Jack takes his last breath, he scribbles his last "Wednesday Letter." When their adult children arrive to arrange the funeral, they discover boxes and boxes full of love letters that their father wrote to their mother each week on Wednesday. As they begin to open and read the letters, the children uncover the shocking truth about the past. In addition, each one must deal with present-day challenges. matthew has a troubled marriage, Samantha is a single mother, and Malcolm is the black sheep of the family who has returned home after a mysterious two-year absence. The Wednesday Letters has a powerful message about forgiveness and quietly beckons for readers to start writing their own "Wednesday Letters."
