Jack and Laurel are well-loved owners of a B&B. Jack begins a tradition of writing Laurel a letter every Wednesday. Upon their death, their three children discover not only the letters, but some shocking news within them.

Sending weekly letters over a lifetime that are filled with mundane to life-changing news was intriguing to me. I enjoyed the banter between the brothers, but other than that it turned out to be just an okay story.


  1. Alright, so is Laurel a guy? I figured Laurel was the wife and I thought the premise sounded very sweet--

    I would LOVE to one day own a B&B--although I'm sure I have a romanticized idea of what it's truly like.

  2. Trish ~ Laurel is not a guy. I didn't mean to mislead you. And, yes, the premise is sweet.

  3. I think I got confused when you said "the banter between the brothers" but I guess you were referring to their sons? :) Opps!!

  4. The idea is appealing. My husband used to have a different journal for each daughter. He would write something for them and they would write something back. It wasn't always on a regular basis, but it was a provided a good place for sensitive questions and answers as well as expressing themselves.

  5. Trish ~ Yep, the brothers are two of their three children.

    Booklogged ~ I love the journal idea your husband implemented with each of your daughters! I hope your daughters still have them.

  6. I enjoyed this book, although do agree with what you said, I dont' think it compares to his book The Christmas Jars - that one was excellent

  7. Kris ~ I did like this, but it seemed to be missing the "specialness" that was present in The Christmas Jars. I would still read more by him.

    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:


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
