Book Recommendation: The Wednesday Letters
My on-line BookChitChat group is reading "The Wednesday Letters" by Jason F. Wright. This book is about a couple, Jack and Laurel, who have had, what their children assumed, was a long, happy and healthy marriage. Early in their relationship, Jack promised Laurel that he would write a letter to her every Wednesday, and he kept that promise throughout their many years of marriage. The drama of the story unfolds after Jack and Laurel die in each others arms at their home one night, and their children discover the letters and the secrets their parents have hidden for so long. The children learn much their father and mother, and themselves, that take them by surprise. Read the book to discover what part forgiveness plays in the lives of the Cooper family.
