Romeo and Juliet meets You’ve Got Mail in 1920s New York when hidden letters change everything for two lost souls and the community around them.
Seven years ago, a letter left inside a tree brought Laura Bradshaw an anonymous friend who helped her navigate the tragic loss of her mother and gave her something to look forward to despite the overbearing hand of her father. Life would be far bleaker, if not for her beloved Letter Tree, her dear friend, and her secret trips to the Buffalo Zoo. But even these rays of light are threatened when her father decides to play matchmaker in order to further his business goals.
When Isaac Campbell learns that his letter friend is destined to court another, he balks at the suggestion and begs her to break her rule of namelessness and meet him. Her words have endeared her to him, he’s ready to fall at her knees and beg her to choose him—that is until he sees her face. The stranger he’s become so attached to is not a stranger . . . but the only daughter of his family’s sworn enemy.
Can the grown children of feuding parents bridge the chasm between them? Or is the divide too deep—and too wide?

Oh the Love of a Rachel Fordham Story!
Oh the love of a Rachel Fordham story…her turn of phrase and writing style always places me right into the middle of the story…the time, the setting, the fashion…just the stories would be enough to capture my interest but the way she puts pen to paper makes them so much more memorable and inspiring.
Slow burn, emotional, forbidden love, coupled with letters that bear the very heart of the scribe, meld perfectly together to create a memorable love story. Include both shady and endearing secondary characters, perfect pacing and a search for answers to the past and you have another excellent tale to read and reread. This story will be my favorite until Fordham releases another.
This book is suitable for teens and older with no inappropriate intimate scenes and no bad language. I received this book from the author/publisher free of charge, with no expectation of a positive review.
