Review: Rachel Hauck has a gift for creating characters that are deep, endearing, and strong. She tells rich stories that keep you up far too late. The Love Letter actually tells two stories. That of Chloe and Jesse along with that of his ancestor Hamilton's love for Esther. Jesse's screenplay is inspired by the letter Hamilton once wrote but never sent to Esther. While both stories are told beautifully, I'm not a huge fan of the back and forth. I understand the rationale. I just don't love it. There are also some times when the dialogue is a little unclear as to who is saying what. It's uncharacteristic for Rachel so it may just be me. But there were several times I had to re-read passages to make sure I was following the conversation correctly. A little frustarting but, again, the stories are so well written that you can kind of overlook it.
There is a significant spiritual element to both stories. Without spoiling anything, it is not a light mention of faith. It involves some key doctrinal points that may not jive with all Christian beliefs and will likely not be appreciated by those who would rather not have heavy religious elements in their romance.
I received an ARC to review
