The Letters by Luanne Rice and Joseph Monninger

Book Review # 2 in 2011. Goal: Read 100 books in 2011.
Book: The Letters by Luanne Rice and Joseph Monninger

I finally finished reading Anne Godbersen’s (2010) novel Bright Young Things. I got so attached to the characters, Letty, Astrid, and of course Cord. I felt so worried for all three of them at different parts of the story.

I haven’t been reading as much this week because I’ve had a bad virus. I didn’t go to my day job for three days this week. I lived on cheerios and 7-up. I’m not 100% yet, but I’m getting there.

What to read next?

I found a copy of “The Letters” a novel by Luanne Rice and Joseph Monninger in my stack of books to read. My mother had read this book in 2008 and she told me that I’d like it.

It is 2011, so, I decided to pick this little book up and I do enjoy it so far.

I have a fascination with writing letters, sending mail, and receiving mail. I love doing that. I have a full drawer full of stationary. So, naturally, the idea of a novel about “writing letters” got my attention. I’m also the type of person who reads very sad stories both fiction and non-fiction.

I’m at the half-way point, which I feel is a good point to write a book review, so I don’t give away any spoilers.

Here are the basics of this story:

Sam and Hadley West have suffered the loss of the son Paul.

Paul was on a mission trip to Alaska to help people in need. His plane crashed from ice.

Sam and Hadley separate.

Sam decides to take a Call of the Wild adventure to the spot where his son’s plane crashed.

His wife Hadley decides to go to the New England coast. She starts to paint again.

The full book is made up of letters that Sam and Hadley write to each other.

They are both coping with the loss of their son in different ways.

What will happen? Will Sam and Hadley get back together? I’m not certain what will happen.

I get feel this book is so realistic. It feels that it could be non-fiction.

Here is an amazon link for this book:
