Life is all about the jigsaw, right? Finding the different puzzle pieces to complete your very own picture. A career you love, a house to make a home, a lover to complete you, and keep you warm at night.
Danielle Renton has a life, and she loves it. A recent law school graduate, she’d been floored when her boyfriend, Nate Lewis, enlisted during their sophomore year of college. At the time, she’d been concerned with what that meant for them as a couple, but in the years that followed, they’d learned to adapt to the logistics of an army relationship.But when life throws her a curveball, how will she cope? Can she pick up the pieces and make her picture beautiful again? Or does she realize that, sometimes, the pieces can be too broken to fit back together…
My heart beats for you and you alone. I know there will be hard times, times when you’re away and I wonder how I’m going to do it, but I promise to always let my love for you help me through those times—knowing that while I’m here missing you, you’re somewhere missing me.
The kiss seemed to last forever, but it came to a point where I had to end it for fear of never wanting to leave. The tears in her eyes as I stood up to walk to the door broke something inside of me, something that wouldn’t be fixed until she was back in my arms again.
His tongue parted my lips and slid into the warmth of my mouth.
My feet shuffled backwards until the back of my legs hit the bed but Nate didn’t stop moving. It wasn’t until he’d pushed me down onto the bed and covered his body with mine, did he lift his lips.
I expected ‘Letters Home’ to be poignant and it is but it’s also story of courage and friendship. This romantic tale was a little different from what I expected but I found it a real feel good read.
The first quarter of the book focuses on Dani and Nate’s romance and it’s clear they are so in love. The pacing in this section is gentle but it sets the scene for what happens in the remainder of the story beautifully.
The plot is interesting with more than one surprising outcome. Well written supporting characters enhance the story’s main characters perfectly. This book has an easy style which draws you in. I read this in a few hours and I didn’t want to put it down.
Dani is a courageous woman who has everything to look forward to. When her partner Nate, makes a unilateral career decision she accepts this because she loves him. When her life disintegrates only her friends and family hold her together but it’s a stranger who helps her to live again.
Sensitively and realistically written heart breaking moments define this story but its underlying theme is hope and positivity reflected by a lovely romantic ending.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
