The Wednesday Letters by Jason F. Wright


You know those novels that are about miracles? Not magic, but realistic miracles that happen every day around the world? The kind of miracle where someone needs a second chance in life and gets it?


The Wednesday Letters by Jason F. Wright is that kind of miracle book.


Malcom Cooper ran off to Brazil to escape his problems, but they found him anyway. Malcom's sister, Sammy called him to break the news of their parents' deaths. Malcom immediately made plans to return to his small town roots and be with his siblings for the funeral.


While Malcom is home, the three siblings discover boxes and boxes full of letters from their father to their mother. During his entire married life, Jack wrote to his wife every Wednesday.


The letters illuminate a family secret, and Malcom is not sure it is a secret he can live with.


This is a book about forgiveness, growing up, dreams, expectations, family, love, and making relationships work.


I enjoyed this grown-up book. If you enjoy it, you may also like Christmas Jars by the same author, For One More Day by Mitch Albom, and Letters for Emily by Camron Wright.

  4. I think this is so funny! I had never heard of this book until last night, when a friend told me how fantastic it was and how I HAD to read it. Then I'm going through my blogroll this morning and THREE blogs had reviews. I think the man upstairs is telling me I need to read this book!

  6. Speaking of The Wednesday Letters, I work with Jason and thought you’d like knowing he has a new contest on his web site where you can win a free trip-for-two to his hometown in VA, the Shenandoah Valley. All you have to do is mail him a Christmas card! All the details are here:
