Book Review: The Wednesday Letters

The Wednesday Letters by Jason F. Wright is an inspiring story about love, family, secrets and forgiveness.

I was skeptical about reading a story that should be an emotional journey of discovery written by a man. I'll be honest and admit I think there are few men that can describe and reach the emotional levels most women can. I have read stories with the same principles written by women and they tend to draw me in and leave me thinking about the characters long after I finish the book.

I was surprised to find that this author was able to do that as well. Sure the emotional detail was not as deep as it could have been in the situations the characters faced, but it was still captivating.

I enjoyed getting to know each character better throughout the book. I enjoyed the unveiling of each secret and twist of the plot, one or two of which brought tears to my eyes.

Overall I found this to be a great read. Its 280 pages short and moves along quickly. I didn't want to put it down. The ending is sweet, but left a few unanswered questions in my opinion.

I think I'll be looking for Christmas Jars by Wright as well at my library this week. I'm off to finish an old yard sale find first though, True Blue by Luanne Rice.
