In the wake of his bestselling Christmas Jars comes a sweetly crafted story from Wright, a Virginia businessman. Jack and Laurel Cooper are two hardworking, loving Christian pillars of the community who die in each other's arms one night in the bed-and-breakfast that they own and operate. The event calls their three grown children home for the funeral, including their youngest son, a fugitive from the law who must face an outstanding warrant for his arrest and confront his one true love, now engaged to another man. As events unfold around the funeral, the three children discover a treasure trove of family history in the form of “Wednesday letters”—notes that Jack wrote to his wife every single week of their married lives. As they read, the children brush across the fabric of a devoted marriage that survived a devastating event kept secret all these years. It's a lovely story: heartening, wholesome, humorous, suspenseful and redemptive. It resonates with the true meaning of family and the life-healing power of forgiveness all wrapped up in a satisfying ending. (Oct.)
When innkeepers Jack and Laurel Conner pass away in each others' arms on the same night, their three children reunite to mourn. The siblings' own issues are pushed aside after they discover boxes of "Wednesday Letters," which Jack wrote to his wife every week of their 39-year marriage. The letters are comforting until a shocking secret is unearthed. As the town gathers to mourn the beloved couple, their youngest son Malcolm struggles to cope with losing his parents in light of the discovery.
In The Wednesday Letters journalist and author Jason F. Wright tenderly demonstrates just how far love and forgiveness can take two people. Samantha, Matthew and Malcolm are moved by the power of devotion so evident in their parents' lives, and the letters serve to influence their choices and strengthen their hearts.
