Some love stories are destined to be told.
About the Book
Romance has never been actress Chloe Daschle’s forte—in life or on screen. But everyone knows who to call for a convincing death scene . . . and it might be killing her career.
When Chloe is given a peek at the script for an epic love story, she decides to take her destiny into her own hands and request an audition for the lead female role, Esther Kingsley. The compelling tale, inspired by family lore and a one-page letter from the colonial ancestor of scriptwriter Jesse Gates, just might break her out of this career-crippling rut. Jesse would rather write about romance than live through it after his past relationship ended in disaster. But once on-set together, the chemistry between Jesse and his leading lady is hard to deny.
Centuries earlier, in the heart of the Revolutionary War, Hamilton Lightfoot and Esther Longfellow wrote their saga off the silver screen. Esther’s Loyalist father opposes any relationship with Hamilton, but Esther must face her beloved father’s disapproval and the dangers of war in order to convince Hamilton of their future together. Hamilton has loved Esther for years, and on the eve of battle pens the love letter she’s always wanted—something straight from the heart.
Set in stunning upcountry South Carolina, The Love Letter is a beautifully-crafted story of the courage it takes to face down fear and chase after love, even in the darkest of times. And just maybe, all these generations later, love can come home in a way not even Hollywood could imagine.
I enjoy a story that has romance, faith, history, and adventure. To put it all in one book and pair it with a beautiful life lesson for all to know is the epitome of a five star read.
The Love Letter left me glued to my big, comfy reading chair or stationed on my porch as it captivated my attention with each turn of the page. The jump between past (and I mean 1780 past) to present is difficult to do. Rachel did it in a way there there was no confusion. Same for the transition between the four characters featured.
As to the story, well, I am a nut for history and the revelation at the end had me jumping in my seat.
To save from giving much more away, I will stop here and say PICK UP A COPY OF THIS BOOK!!!!!!
