Review of Wednesday Letters by Jason F. Wright

Synopsis: "The story of marriage, family, and forgiveness that has become not just a bestseller but an instant classic.

Their story begins with one letter on their wedding night, a letter from the groom, promising to write his bride every week—for as long they both shall live.

Thirty-nine years later, Jack and Laurel Cooper die in each other's arms. And when their grown children return to the family B&B to arrange the funeral, they discover thousands of letters.

The letters they read tell of surprising joys and sorrows. They also hint at a shocking family secret—and ultimately force the children to confront a life-changing moment of truth . ."

My Review: You can always count on Wright to put together an emotional story that has an impact. While this may not have been quite what I was expecting, it was still a very good story. While I didn't connect with the characters as well as I usually do, I did really love and connect with the storyline itself. I love the concept and thought it was well written, not all the letters were flowery and lovely, they at times as with life, were short and mundane. These letters also revealed to those left behind the many levels and dramatics of life that created who Jack and Laurel became in life.
My Rating: Wednesday Letter was a good story, just not quite what I expected. I give it a rating of Three Paws.
