Authors Mary Davis, Kathleen Kovach, Sally Laity, and Jeri Odell take you on a journey through time. Don't let the front cover fool you. This book is centered around everything but a pretty stack of handwritten love notes. 4 stories of 4 generations centered around some unique love letters provide wonderful reading for a rainy afternoon. Be prepared to experience some heartache and excitement while being wooed along with Laurel, Prudie, Bethany and Jonica through their original love letters. . .
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!
From The Back of the Book:
Four generations of women find themselves intrigued by the written word. Will the friendships from the men on the other end of the correspondence be the key to their happiness?
Laurel has just lost her father in a bank robbery of his own scheming. Ashamed of his behavior, the only solace she finds is in a sheet of music she discovers propped up on the piano in the church.
Prudie is a headstrong college graduate who rebels against the 1950's conservative expectations on women. Alex is desperate for a wife and tries wooing Prudie through fortune cookies with special scripture verses inside. Will this bring an unlikely pair together?
Eighteen-year-old Bethany must provide for her ailing mother. With no outlet to express her private hopes and dreams, she begins leaving anonymous Post-uit Notes around town. . . honest feelings she cannot tell to anyone but God. But someone guesses her identity.
Jonica is an inexperienced eBay buyer and antique store owner. Houston already manages an antique store - and everywhere he turns, she's in his way, running up the prices. They are both annoyed by the other and he e-mails her to tell her so. Where will this relationship lead?
