by Rachel Hauck

With the colonies at war and his country divided, Hamilton Lightfoot must choose sides: Fight for the British Crown or for the Independence of America. But after witnessing the death of his family at the hands of redcoats, he fears he’ll fight for revenge instead of honor. On the verge of a great battle, he pens a letter to Esther, the woman he loves.

Esther Longfellow is in love with Hamilton, but her father is a loyalist, living in upcountry South Carolina and working for a wealthy British lord. When the Revolutionary War comes to her doorstep she is forced to choose between devotion to her father and her love for Hamilton.

Chloe Daschle is the daughter of Hollywood royalty—a great director and an Oscar-winning actress. Yet her career has taken an unexpected turn: She’s the queen of death scenes. Trying to break out, she accepts a supporting role in a revolutionary war film. But she longs for the perfect role and the perfect real-life romance. Does happily ever after only exist in the movies?

Rachel Hauck is a story teller, one that can craft a story that will appeal to your heart, emotions and will have you interested in her book for a very long time.  The Love Letter is an enjoyable read. This story is a dual storyline, one that is separated by 240 years, which seemed for a while to have no rhyme or reason, but eventually I caught on. Between the present time and the American Revolution war, this book was captivating. I enjoyed the idea of handwritten letters passed down from generations to generations, especially with computers and social media. The idea of a handwritten note seems so foreign to us, so I treasure handwritten notes and the idea that these letters had meaning, which makes this book more rich.

If you enjoy stories that have dual time periods with rich history, this is a good book for you to pick up. Rachel Hauck seems to have spent a great deal of time doing her homework on the history. This book is a great read!
