The Wednesday Letters by Jason F. Wright

I finished this book within twelve hours! Was it the small print and larger spacing between lines over the 280 pages or just my super speed reading? *in high pitched, childish voice* Ah, Heidi you're so amazing! *in normal voice* Oh thank you, it was nothing, really. Anyways!

This is a lovely little book (relatively short too) about family. The book begins with death in the family, and takes place in the family B&B over the course of the near week with the funeral and all. The three children in the Cooper family discover letters their father wrote to their mother every week, 'Wednesday Letters', beginning on their wedding night. It's a simple, heartwarming story and being so short, has a short review. So here's what I thought: it was slow in the beginning, but picks up and becomes very interesting with no problem, wrapping up with a very satisfying end. I loved it.

RECOMMENDED FOR: People interested in letter writing, stories about families, shorter novels, and those with little conflict.
AND NOT FOR: Those with no patience for slow beginnings, prefer major conflicts, orphans who hate being reminded they have no family, or people with generally no hearts at all.

Dang, I guess that counts me out.

That's right Katie, you just stay away. Stick to your stories where everyone dies in the end.

Not! :)
