The Wedding Letters by Jason F. Wright
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Rachel and Noah meet in a very non-traditional way and fall in love. Noah's family and the area he grew up means a lot to him, and comes to mean a lot to Rachel. But, family ties weren't strong for her, and coming to grips with what she can have, while coping with her past might be too much to bear.
I was immediately drawn into The Wedding Letters with Wright's description of Rachel and Noah's meeting. Very creative.
But most of the first half of the book seemed like revisiting The Wednesday Letters. I really enjoyed that book, but it had been wrapped up well, and more stories/letters from most of the same characters didn't capture my attention as much as I'd hoped.
The last half of the book was more interesting with Rachel's story, and although somewhat overdone, the letter idea is really sweet (with some very good advice).
