Publisher's Summary

Jack and Laurel have been married for 39 years. They've lived a good life and appear to have had the perfect marriage. With his wife cradled in his arms, and before Jack takes his last breath, he scribbles his last “Wednesday Letter.” When their adult children arrive to arrange the funeral, they discover boxes and boxes full of love letters that their father wrote to their mother each week on Wednesday.
As they begin to open and read the letters, the children begin to uncover the shocking truth about the past. In addition, each one must deal with present-day challenges. Matthew has a troubled marriage, Samantha is a single mother, and Malcolm is the black sheep of the family who has returned home after a mysterious two-year absence. The Wednesday Letters has a powerful message about forgiveness and quietly beckons for listeners to start writing their own “Wednesday Letters.”


What the Critics Say

“In the wake of [Wright's] best-selling Christmas Jars comes a sweetly crafted 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." (Publishers Weekly)
"It's a love story unashamed of portraying values. Romance and magic still live!" (Glenn Beck)

Hard to come by a read as good as this. Such a sweet story with a wonderful theme. I was surprised with the ending but still enjoyed it. It is a story they need to make a movie out of if it has not already been done. So glad I found out about it.
