An emotional, wonderful, touching, and amazing read!
I love books that transport me to the past with their imagery and realistic portrayal of the time period. Miss Sundin does just that. She takes us to many places in With Every Letter including Casablanca, North Africa, and even Italy.
In this sweet romance tale, Mellie and Tom anonymously correspond with one another. The anonymity twist was interesting, and particularly useful to the characters. I just loved the encouragement and advice the two gave each other, despite their own troubles.
Miss Sundin did a magnificent job bringing the book to a close. It wasn't too hasty and it wasn't too slow. I adored Mellie's growth from the beginning of the book to the end. She struggled, like most young women do, but she also sought God when she needed help or answers. I never tire of Godly heroines. :-) Overall, I really, really, liked this book.
People who have seen You've Got Mail featuring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks will like this book as well as anyone who likes historical fiction.Back of the Book (From Amazon):
