Book Description from the publisher:
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes a story of long-lost love and its redemption in future generations.
Romance has never been actress Chloe Daschle’s forte—in life or on screen. But everyone knows who to call for a convincing death scene . . . and it might be killing her career.
When Chloe is given a peek at the script for an epic love story, she decides to take her destiny into her own hands and request an audition for the lead female role, Esther Kingsley. The compelling tale, inspired by family lore and a one-page letter from the colonial ancestor of scriptwriter Jesse Gates, just might break her out of this career-crippling rut. Jesse would rather write about romance than live through it after his past relationship ended in disaster. But once on-set together, the chemistry between Jesse and his leading lady is hard to deny.
Centuries earlier, in the heart of the Revolutionary War, Hamilton Lightfoot and Esther Longfellow wrote their saga off the silver screen. Esther’s Loyalist father opposes any relationship with Hamilton, but Esther must face her beloved father’s disapproval and the dangers of war in order to convince Hamilton of their future together. Hamilton has loved Esther for years, and on the eve of battle pens the love letter she’s always wanted—something straight from the heart.
Set in stunning upcountry South Carolina, The Love Letter is a beautifully-crafted story of the courage it takes to face down fear and chase after love, even in the darkest of times. And just maybe, all these generations later, love can come home in a way not even Hollywood could imagine.
I have been waiting to read "The Love Letter" ever since I first saw that this was Rachel Hauck's new release! First of all, this book has such a beautiful cover, I loved it! I also loved the storyline, so sweet and romantic. Chloe is an actress and her career has been in the same rut it seems and her career as an actress may not be much longer. She takes a risk to hopefully help her career when she sees a new script come across. However, it turns into more than she imagined.
I loved the chemistry between Chloe and Jesse and seeing this relationship develop between them. Chloe and Jesse are both working through things in their lives career wise and in their personal lives and I love how this is addressed and handled along this storyline. Rachel's books are always so inspiring, sweet, and characters you cannot help but love! I highly recommend this new release from Rachel!
