Review The Wednesday Letters by: Jason F. Wright

Description:

Their story begins with one letter on their wedding night, a letter from the groom, promising to write his bride every week—for as long they both shall live.

Thirty-nine years later, Jack and Laurel Cooper die in each other's arms. And when their grown children return to the family B&B to arrange the funeral, they discover thousands of letters.

The letters they read tell of surprising joys and sorrows. They also hint at a shocking family secret—and ultimately force the children to confront a life-changing moment of truth . . .

My Thoughts: 

What a great story that deals with the death of Jack and Laurel Cooper when they died and their kids return home to bury them and find thousands of letters Jack wrote to Laurel.  As the kids read the letters they learn so much about their parents.

This book was great and most of it was told between letters like who Malcolm's father really was?  And what happened to his mother so long ago, and how Jack Cooper stepped up and accepted Malcolm as his own regardless of what happened.

And all the legal trouble Malcolm was in got straightened out when the truth of the attack on Rain was explained.  I really enjoyed this story and loved how it was letters from Jack to Laurel that we learn more about the couple!
