to open her mailbox one summer morning and find an old letter stuffed between
bills and a supermarket flyer. Penned in familiar handwriting, dated over
fifteen years ago, the letter was written to Molly after her first date with the
man she’ll never forget.
Week after week, new letters appear. Each marks an event in
the history of their epic love affair. Each heals a wound. Each holds the
confession of the man who still owns Molly’s heart.
The letters are full of promise, hope and love, but truth be
told, Molly wishes she could unread them all.
Because the man who wrote these letters is not the one
Devney Perry is one of my go-to authors. She serves up small-town love stories with equal parts passion and angst, writing characters with back stories that draw readers in and make them part of the world that she’s created. I was all in with LETTERS TO MOLLY, Devney’s follow-up to THE BIRTHDAY LIST, from the very beginning. Why? Because the kernels of Finn’s and Molly’s stories had been planted in the first book, and I wanted more than anything to see how things had evolved for them.
I generally enjoy a second-chance love story, and LETTERS TO MOLLY is second chance done right. Alternating between the past, via Finn’s letters, and current events, Devney paints a story of two people that have the opportunity to look back at what brought them together, what went wrong, and finally make their way back to each other.
LETTERS TO MOLLY is a five star read for me, and one of my favorites this year. Like THE BIRTHDAY LIST before it, this is a book of new beginnings, of love recovered, and the opportunity for hearts to be healed and made whole. This is a book that will stay with me for a long time to come, and is one that I highly recommend.
