I was hoping for a happy cheesy read but got a mouthful of inspiration and hard life choices, one after another. Honestly I couldn’t put it down because it was a well written and captivating story but if you aren’t ready to deal with death and other hard life choices at the time come back later.
The Wednesday Letters is a fun book to read. It's tough to put it down once you start. I enjoyed reading about Jack and Laurel and their family. I like the idea of Jack writing letters to Laurel every week. I wasn't expecting the tragic beginning so quickly, but I love the way that the story ended. This is a must read.
Love. Untold stories. Letters. This book is unpredictable! It captures the unbearable truths of the Coopers lives. Completely outstanding!
This book surprised me, as I expected something sweet and simple. At its core is a difficult situation, one requiring repentance and forgiveness in a marriage. Much as we would like it to be, this is not unusual in life--circumstances might not be the same, but the need for understanding, forgiving, rebuilding is nearly universal in one way or another. I thought this book depicted that beautifully.
This book's story is compelling the further you read; the characters are very real. I feel like I want to go meet them and see how their lives are going since the book finished. :) Drama, suspense, mystery, love, forgiveness, peace...my husband even liked it very much (as he thought it would be a girls' novel) and especially the father-son relationship parts (the final letter in the back of the book in particular). I loved that unique and creative aspect, having a real letter in the book as an epilogue. Great work!
Wonderful book. Touching story about a man and his wife and their wonderful marriage.
If you love to read, this book is great!! Plus it's not real long so if you don't have time to read a lot, it's perfect!!
This is an Amazing, and FAST read. This is a must read for fiction lovers.
The Wednesday Letters is a great fictional read. By delving through a collection of old letters, a hurting family comes to understand each other and their parents better. Really reminds us of the importance of not judging, rather loving and understanding each other as Christ does. I would recommend parents read it alongside youth and discuss some of the topics involved as they are a little bit mature.
The story was beautifully written, and although it sometimes seemed a little "cheesy" I still found myself in tears at the end......
My husband and I read this book together in just a couple of days. It was hard to put it down. This story will make sure all your emotions are in check.
I read this book for a book club and I was sorry I spent the money. The author is a great writer but I felt the content was not acceptable. I came away feeling sad instead of uplifted.
Fiction geared toward the LDS audience is often cheesey at parts and unrealistic. I was very impressed with The Wednesday Letters because it WASN'T the typical. It was realistic emotionally and in situation; and, it played to the intelligent reader. Yes, the content was rather mature, however, there was nothing in the book that qualifies it as not acceptable to a reader who values their morals. Good job! Keep up the good work.
This books is a little different from the usual Church fictional books that I have read, but it made a pleasant change.
It was written in such an interesting and vivid way, that made you believe the thoughts of the main characters, and then you realised that you too were led into the incorrect assumptions, along with the characters!
I have recommended my friends to read this book, it is something you can relax with, and is not all "sugary" nice - for life is not like that.
I enjoyed the book, and I am sure many other readers will as well!
This book has a great idea. I wish I had thought of doing something like this when I first got married.
There are relationships shown that grow with love.
I have never read any of Jason's work before, however I must say that the Wednesday Letters book was quite interesting. I had a hard time getting into the book, but when it came to the letters and being able to see how this father and mother worked through their problems rather than give up on each other, which is the worlds answer, I was pulled into the story more. I thought it was an okay book, but many others I have talked to loved it, so read it before you judge it based on my opinion. It had some real life lessons that had to be learned, mainly about forgiveness of things they were not in control of, and then moving forward with life. It also delt with hard parently decissions about their children.
This book is so touching in so many ways! I loved it!
It was a good book. It had some mystery and kept you reading to find out...the twisted truth. I enjoyed it.
I'm glad to see that as membership in this church continues to grow and diversify, so do our stories.
Each of us has a different story to tell, and there's probably someone out there who can personally relate to The Wednesday Letters.
Enjoyable, though not your run-of-the-mill read.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all of his books! Jason Wright has a way of bringing you in and keeping you interested. Once I start reading, I have a hard time putting his books down. I am looking forward to reading his new book, Recovering Charles.
