Wenn Liebesbriefe das Leben ändern

Fast vierzig Jahre waren Jack und Laurel verheiratet, als sie in derselben Nacht Arm in Arm sterben. Die drei erwachsenen Kinder kommen zum Begräbnis im Elternhaus zusammen – und entdecken im Keller ein Vermächtnis: Tausende von Briefen, die der Vater jeden Mittwoch an die Mutter schrieb. Wunderbare Briefe voller Liebe und Gefühl. Und ein Brief, der ein schreckliches Familiengeheimnis offenbart.

Innerhalb einer einzigen schicksalsschweren Nacht sterben Jack und Laurel, die seit fast vierzig Jahren glücklich verheiratet waren. Schweren Herzens finden sich ihre drei Kinder zusammen, um die Begräbnisfeierlichkeiten zu organisieren. Jeder hat sein eigenes Problem im Gepäck: Matthews Ehe ist ungewollt kinderlos und entsprechend angespannt. Samantha wiederum ist bereits geschieden und muss sich als alleinerziehende Mutter durchkämpfen. Und Malcolm ist um seiner Jugendliebe willen mit dem Gesetz in Konflikt geraten und bereits vor Jahren in Brasilien untergetaucht. Im Keller ihres Elternhauses stoßen die drei unvermutet auf einen Schatz: kistenweise Briefe des Vaters an die Mutter, die er ihr jahrzehntelang jeden Mittwoch geschrieben hat. Sie bieten wunderbar romantische Liebeserklärungen an seine Frau und zugleich eine rührende Geschichte der Familie. Die Lektüre ist zunächst enorm tröstlich. Doch dann taucht ein Brief auf, der die Familie in ihren Grundfesten erschüttert und eines der Kinder in den Abgrund zu stoßen droht.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good and Bad I found The Wednesday Letters to be very dry and one sided. The author only opened up about one main character which made the other five main characters flat and boring. There was a good message in the book though (forgiveness, togetherness, family values, love and loss) So although I thought it to be boring, it still had good values.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Bad... For Some I had trouble getting into The Wednesday Letters. I found the story to be extremely slow paced past the first chapter. There was a great deal of dialogue between the characters, but this made it difficult to tell who was speaking sometimes. I found myself re-reading sections of the novel just to return my focus to the novel rather than wherever my mind had drifted off to. The story took it's twists and turns, but the event felts like they were dragged on. It was the longest weekend written in a novel I have ever read. The worst part of the novel for me was that I felt as though Jason Wright was throwing his religious viewpoints in my face. "Hi! I'm Christian! I believe in God and you need to too!" I feel that it's okay to have religion mentioned in a book, but I found that Wright wouldn't let me forget about it. I certainly wasn't expecting that when I picked up this novel. I think it would do better to be found on the shelves at a Christian book store, because I am sure it's not a novel for everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy, relaxing read... This book was wholesome and quaint. The characters are endearing and the story is sometimes very emotional. It tells that true love is not some idealistic fairytale...rather something to be acheived through some very hard work and effort. I thought the writing flowed well and it was incredibly easy to read. And the Epilogue - "the last letter" - sealed in it's own envelope at the back of the book, was indeed a selling point for me...very cute!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it More then anything it was great to read a book and not have to worry about foul language and inapproprate behavour, and it had a good story line. Why can't more writer really on the storyline and less on "sex sells". I can leave this one on the shelf for my kids to read. I like the way they resolved the problems. Great book!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Good Sunday Read The Wednesday Letters by Jason F. Wright is the story of three grown children who return home for the funeral of their parents. While there, they discover letters that their father wrote to their mother every Wednesday for their entire married life. The book was a bit predictable and some will consider it unrealistic. However, it was an easy and gentle read which was enjoyable. The epilogue of the book comes in a sealed envelope inside the back cover. What a great marketing ploy! Of course, I was into that envelope as soon as the final page was turned to see what could be so important that it was presented this way. A good read for a Sunday afternoon.
