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.”

Critic Reviews

“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)

EXCELLENT!!!!!

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.

Highly Recommend!

This book was absolutely wonderful.
It’s very hard to put into words how it touched my heart and soul.
I hope you’ll read it and offer forgiveness to anyone that needs forgiven.

Pretty boring

This had a good message, but, for me, Boring.
This didn’t pull you into the characters. It didn’t make you love or hate any of them. The plot twist at the end was anticlimactic. Seriously nothing in this book grabs you and pulls you in.

Pretty darn boring.

There's really not much more to say. I wouldn't have even finished it if my new audible credits had come yet. But I did. Waste. I definitely need a lot more engagement.

Boring

This was not a good story, it was boring!
The story never really went anywhere.
Could have gone in several good directions, but failed
