Best-selling author Rachel Hauck never ceases to amaze me with the fascinating plots of her stories – where does she come up with her unique ideas?! “The Love Letter” is her newest release from Thomas Nelson, and is a dual-storyline novel that weaves together the lives of four people… Two are from the glamorous but shallow, modern-day world of Hollywood, and two are from the tumultuous unrest of South Carolina during the Revolutionary War. Their connection? A simple letter – a love letter…
“The Love Letter” weaves two equally engrossing stories, one historical and one contemporary, into a beautiful tale of redemption throughout the generations of a family. There were a few scenes, situations, and conversations that were slightly inappropriate for Christian fiction, and I do not feel the story as a whole would be suitable for a very young audience. However for the most part, it was clean and enjoyable. Messages of God’s grace and redeeming love, forgiveness (including for yourself), and faith are integral parts of the story, and round out the book into a compelling novel.
If you enjoy sweeping sagas that span generations and instill hope for happily-ever-afters orchestrated by God into your heart, “The Love Letter” is definitely a book you’ll enjoy. Perfect for reading in a lawn chair on a lazy afternoon, it will be a lovely addition to your summer reading list.
