Welcome everyone to my first ever book review! I promise I will not give any ending away (I'm not a spoiler!) but I will give you enough information to get a feel of the book as well as my opinion of the book.
The book I just finished is called The Wednesday Letters by Jason F. Wright.

This book is about the lovely couple Jack and Laurel, who had been married for almost 40 years, both die in the same night (don't worry this doesn't give anything away!). But just before Jack dies, he writes his last Wednesday Letter, something he had written to his wife every week since they were wed. As their three adult children come home and prepare for their funeral, they find the boxes and boxes filled with these letters. As they go through the letters, they learn about their parents, some things they had no idea about. It is a tale of forgiveness and love and family.
I really enjoyed this book. It was an quick read and easy to follow. My favorite books are the ones where I can feel a connection with the characters and this book did just that! It isn't one of those romantic stories where it seems like the couple has no problems or worries. Jack and Laurel appear as a "real" couple in that they had their troubles and obstacles but their love for each other and God prevailed. I would recommend this book to anyone. It is a book that just sucks you in and something you can't put down.
Also, I just found out that the book has a website (linked to the image above) AND there is a SEQUEL! I can't wait to be able to read that and see where it goes! (ALERT: Don't read the synopsis of the sequel before reading the first book because it gives a minor detail away that you want to leave as a surprise!)

I hope you feel like you would enjoy this book!
What kind of books do you like to read? Any books you would recommend? I'm always looking for new ideas :)
