Focused on a career
in medicine and not on romance, Willa Duvall is thrown slightly off course
during the summer of 1859 when she discovers a never-opened love letter in a
crack of her old writing desk. Compelled to find the passionate soul who penned
it and the person who never received it, she takes a job as a nurse at the
seaside estate of Crestwicke Manor.
Everyone at Crestwicke has feelings--mostly negative ones--about the man who wrote the letter, but he seems to have disappeared. With plenty of enticing clues but few answers, Willa's search becomes even more complicated when she misplaces the letter and it passes from person to person in the house, each finding a thrilling or disheartening message in its words.
Laced with mysteries large and small, this romantic Victorian-era tale of love lost, love deferred, and love found is sure to delight.
I delightful novel all because of a Love Letter. The Love Note by Joanna Davidson Politano is a different take on a the nurse that comes to save the day. With the introduction of a hidden, but now found Love Letter, Willa seeks out the owners of the letter. With luck and dedication, she seeks out the true story behind the Love Note. The story starts with a marriage proposal and ends with another marriage proposal. One wanted, and one not wanted. The romance is between friends and blooms into something more. The characters at Crestwicke Manor need Willa to come rescue them in more ways than one. The plot moves along at a nice pace. I didn't one to put the story down. While I had a good idea who write the love letter, I was drawn to the transformation of the characters plight. Politano crafted a story worth savoring, and I can't wait to read what she comes up with next. There is a little teaser in the back of this story for her next novel.
I received a complimentary copy of The Love Note by Jonna Davidson Politano from Revell Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.
