Book Flight: Letters

In a fast paced, technology based world, there’s something special about handwritten notes and letters. Today I’m sharing my favorite novels that revolve around letters: some sweet, some mysterious, some heartbreaking.

Dear Mr. Knightly by Katherine Reay

This was the book everyone was talking about when it first came out, but I put off reading it. Contemporary romance isn’t a genre I usually enjoy. When I finally read Dear Mr. Knightly, my opinion quickly changed and I found a new favorite author. This sweet debut novel is such a fun read and reminds me of the childhood favorite book that inspired it, Daddy Long Legs.

The Love Note by Joanna Davidson Politano

I’ve been a fan of Joanna Davidson Politano since her first book, but this is my new favorite. This historical romance’s feisty main character finds a hidden love note and determines she will find it’s intended reader. She quickly loses control of the situation as the note takes on a life of it’s own.

Things We Didn’t Say by Amy Lynn Green

Set during World War II, this book has a similar feel to The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. This book delves into deep themes of forgiveness and grace, and also highlights lesser known events of WWII, including the Japanese-American internment camps in America. It’s another incredible debut novel.

The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck

This split time novel was the first I read by Rachel Hauck, who has quickly become a favorite author. It had been a really long time since I became so emotionally wrapped up in a book. Keep the tissues close when you read this!

Hope Between the Pages by Pepper Basham

I’m in the middle of this book right now, and it would be hard for a book lover to find a better setting – a bookstore and long long notes and letters. I’m only a few chapters in, but I love it! Set at the Biltmore Estate, his is the first in a multi-author series called Doors to the Past, set around famous historical American landmarks.

What are your favorite books about letters? I’d love to add more to my TBR list!
