Heart touching brilliance
For the Love of Laura Beth (A Chicago Christmas Book 4) by Aubrey Wynne
This is my first read by this author and I am in love..This book touched every emotion and the flow of the words were simply perfection. The only negative I have about this book was that it ended, I could have read this story for so many more pages. So I will absolutely be checking out everything else available. It only took a couple pages for me to fall completely for these characters...My heart broke when he received the letter and can't imagine how he felt knowing he had to tell his girl, and then I try to imagine how she felt when she found out he was leaving.
I cried more than once while reading this story and just love how this author made me feel like I was living in 1952 and everything just felt so real and I'm sure that this story would hit hard many that lived through and experienced these exact times. I was a complete mess throughout.
I can't recommend this story enough it's an awesome story written perfectly!
