The Wednesday Letters


How well do we really know our parents? That's the premise of this novel. When Jack and Laurel Cooper die on the same day, their three kids come home for the funeral and find the letters that their father wrote to their mother every Wednesday.

The contents of the letters surprise and shock the kids.

I love the idea for this book because I'm a letter writer, too, and it didn't disappoint.

And the neatest part? At the back of the book is an envelope with one more letter that the reader gets to open and unfold and read.

I'd definitely recommend this fast-paced book to everyone.
