Julie’s note: Letters of Love isn’t part of a traditional blog tour, but I wanted to share my review because this is FREE on Kindle through Monday (please check to make sure before purchasing.) Joi Copeland is one of my critique partners and her work is uplifting and full of love and hope. Check out Letters of Love today!
Sophia is struggling over loss and unmet expectations. When she needed her husband the most, the war came between them. Her grandmother, Lucia, is the one person who understands Sophia’s grief. Lucia shares her love letters written during WWII to provide a glimpse of hope for Sophia. Is it enough?
I loved how the story spans two love stories, two wars, two situations where love and hope abide. The author does a great job using Lucia’s experiences from days gone by to help Sophia. The letters are based on actual love letters from the author’s grandparents. The cover picture is also the author’s grandparents. Knowing that adds to the beautiful tapestry woven throughout the book.
This is a beautiful read filled with love and hope.
Two men fighting for their country. Two women dealing with tragedy alone. Two different stories, two different eras, one common thread. Sophia Philips, a wife and mom, finds herself missing the two most important people in her life. One ripped from her because of war, the other by death. Sophia’s grandmother, Lucia Snell, gives her an early inheritance; letters written to her by her husband while stationed in China during World War II. Lucia believes these letters will help her granddaughter heal from the heart-wrenching tragedy she faces. Will Sophia carry the anger, bitterness, and guilt within her or go to the only One who can heal her from the pain? Will she find the strength to carry on and the will to survive through her grandparents’ Letters of Love?
