In his first novel since Christmas Jars, Jason F. Wright has written a story of love and forgiveness that is appropriate for Valentine's Day. The Wednesday Letters is a story of romantic love, long-lasting love of God and family, and beautiful love letters.
Jack and Laurel Cooper had been married for almost forty years. Their bed-and-breakfast in Woodstock, Virginia in the Shenandoah Valley welcomed friends and family. The couple died together on one night, of separate causes. Their deaths reunited their grown children. Matthew, the oldest, arrived without his wife, as he struggled with a troubled marriage. Samantha, a police officer, was a single mother who had left her beloved career in theater. And, Malcolm, the youngest, was called home from Brazil, where he had fled after jumping bail after beating one man and fighting with the attorney who coveted Malcolm's girlfriend. Malcolm's past hangs over the entire family as he faces arrest.
When the three Coopers discover a cache of love letters, they discover family secrets and their parents' past. There are troubling letters that will tear apart their perceptions of their family. The letters are part of their history, stories that can destroy them, or rebuild them as stronger people.
Once again, Wright has written about stories that transform people. In this case, the letters show the power of love and forgiveness. The Wednesday Letters might be a perfect book for Valentine's Day.
