Publisher's Summary

Three Letters is the brand new dramatic novel about the power of a father’s love, a little boy’s journey, and the desperate search for a place to call home, from number-one best-selling author Josephine Cox.
Eight-year-old Casey’s mother, Ruth, is a cruel woman with a weakness for other women’s husbands. Casey’s father is gentle and hard-working and, though Tom Denton has long suspected his wife of having sordid affairs, he has chosen to turn a blind eye to keep the peace.
But then, out of the blue, Tom’s world is completely shattered when he receives two bits of devastating news. Because of this, Tom realises that from now on their lives must change, forever. A broken man, Tom is made to fight for his son, determined to keep him safe.
But, when fate takes a hand, life can be unbearably painful, and Casey is made to remember his father’s prophetic words: "It’s done. The die is thrown, and nobody wins." But, unbeknownst to Casey, there are three letters penned by his father that may just change his destiny forever.

Maybe I'm too cynical but . . .

The core story might have been okay, but the writing and the narrator were painful. Are we to believe that a one night occurrence over seven years past and they are soul mates for life? Everyone in this story is lonely, as we are told over and over, and just need someone to love them. It seems even the nastiest person who treats everyone very badly is just misunderstood. As I said, the story could have been okay, but it was way over done, both in the writing and the narration. I struggled to reach the end without suffering from saccharine overdose.

Pushes Forgiveness

As my title indicates the book is big on forgiveness, but I'm sorry, the mum was the nastiest piece of work in this and I'd have had nothing to do with her, if it was me.

An 8 year old boy dotes on his father until one day a tragedy strikes and he is left to his grandfather's care. His mother has never loved him, but now she is facing hard times she is forced to relive her past and her feelings for him.
