Publisher's Summary

Can a stack of long-hidden love letters from a WWII war hero inspire a heartbroken woman to love again? Reeling from a bitter divorce, Adrienne Carter abandons Chicago and retreats to the sun, sand, and beauty of Southern Florida, throwing herself into the restoration of a dilapidated old Victorian beach house. Early into the renovations, she discovers a tin box hidden away in the attic that reveals the emotional letters from a WWII paratrooper to a young woman who lived in the house more than a half-century earlier. The old letters - incredibly poetic and romantic - transcend time, and they arouse in Adrienne a curiosity that leads her to track down the writer of the letters. William "Pops" Bryant is now an old man living in a nearby town with his handsome but overprotective grandson, Will. As Adrienne begins to unravel the secrets of the letters (and the Bryants), she finds herself not yet willing to give up entirely on love.

Beautiful Old Fashioned Romance

I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent book. It is so refreshing to find a modern author that does not have to rely on bad language, violence, or steamy sex scenes to carry the story along.
The plot concerns a young woman who finds a box of old love letters when she is renovating an old house .Intrigued by the letters she sets out to find the author,a WW2 veteran living in a nearby town with his devoted handsome grandson .The book is full of likable characters and believable situations all set in a delightful beach town in Florida.

The narration was first rate and I will certainly look for more books by this author.
Thanks Audible for making this available.

Emotional Lump

What made the experience of listening to One Lavender Ribbon the most enjoyable?

The historical significance combined with the wonderfully flawed and loving characters. I couldn't stop listening. I thought the book would be sappy based on the title, and I'm so glad I gave it a chance after sitting on my "wish list" for so long. I've recommended it to everyone I can think of. I just adored this book and rank it with "The Notebook" as far as being a book that gets under your skin and touches you in unexpected ways. I hated that it ended!
