A couple months ago I saw The Wednesday Letters
at the local bookstore and then requested it from the library. Of course, when it actually came in, I had a pile of other reading to get through. I’m so glad that I took the time the past couple of days to read this. What a treasure this book by Jason F. Wright is! Not only is it a great love story, but it is also profoundly pro-life and offers lessons in forgiveness and second chances.
Laurel and Jack Cooper died on the same night after thirty-nine years of marriage. When their children come home for their funeral, they discover box upon box of letters. Jack wrote Laurel a letter every Wednesday of their lives together. In reading these letters, their children discover many things that they never knew, especially one buried family secret. The children need to make peace with the past, and in so doing, create a new future.
“The Wednesday Letters” is a must-read. You won’t regret spending time with this story.
