March - Week #2 - Great book recommendation

Review taken from
Jack and Laurel Cooper are two hardworking, loving Christian pillars of the community who die in each other's arms one night in the bed-and-breakfast that they own and operate. The event calls their three grown children home for the funeral, including their youngest son, a fugitive from the law who must face an outstanding warrant for his arrest and confront his one true love, now engaged to another man. As events unfold around the funeral, the three children discover a treasure trove of family history in the form of Wednesday letters-notes that Jack wrote to his wife every single week of their married lives. As they read, the children brush across the fabric of a devoted marriage that survived a devastating event kept secret all these years. It's a lovely story: heartening, wholesome, humorous, suspenseful and redemptive. It resonates with the true meaning of family and the life-healing power of forgiveness all wrapped up in a satisfying ending.
** This book was wonderful. A quick and enjoyable read. I couldn't put it down. And being a mom with little time to myself, it was a pleasure to make the most out of it with this book.

  1. I just read this book a few months ago. It made me want to start writing letters... real letters on real paper. It was an easy read that I had a hard time putting down.
