What Is A Conservative? And Other Letters To The Editor
Letters of Note started as a website where Shaun Usher shared letters from people. Now it’s a collection of the world’s most inspiring, compulsive and powerful letters, curated into different books based on their subject matter.
When I signed up for the reading, I didn’t know what topic I would get, and when I got the grief, I was a little disappointed. I thought to myself – “another sad book”. Now, looking back, I am grateful that I read this book, because it allowed me to get closer to my grief and feel emotions that I had purposely refused to feel. It also gave me some comfort, an unexpected hug, one of those you didn’t know you needed.
Through 31 letters, I felt the sadness of different people over the loss of someone. I read words of compassion, empathy, love and joy. For such a short book, I felt so much!
My favorite letter is Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s letter to his grandmother when his grandfather died. My grandfather’s death is still so painful to me – even though it’s been a few years. He died on Christmas Eve, and I never got a chance to say goodbye. On my last visit, I was sure I would see him again. A year later, my grandmother also passed away, and the pain was piled on top of the pain I was already feeling.
Book Review: For You! Modern Day Love Letters By John Arsenault — Musée Magazine
We just keep piling pain on top of each other like tower blocks over the years…waiting for it to come crashing down on us? Does it ever go away, or do we always carry it with us? I guess only time will tell…
“It seems to me that if we love, we grieve.” That’s the deal. It’s a pact. Grief and love are forever intertwined.”
I am very grateful for this book. Being able to dive into how other people feel has helped me better understand my own emotions. Although we are never quite ready for grief, and we never fully heal. But without knowing pain and sorrow, how will we ever truly know happiness?
Sean Usher was born in St Albans in 1978 and currently lives in Wilmslow with his wife and two sons. He is the sole keeper of the popular blog Letters of Note, whose long-awaited book will be published in October 2013 after long periods of hair-pulling and despair. His obsession with correspondence is particularly interesting given that he regularly receives – and most often does not respond to – abuse from exasperated friends and family for his apparent inability to return calls, emails and, on very rare occasions, letters. His second book is in progress.
Surviving Religion 101: Letters To A Christian Student On Keeping The Faith In College By Michael J. Kruger Book Review — Shelf Reflection (book Reviews)
| A girl who believes in the impossible! Bookworm | Book reviewer | Blogger | vvv See all posts by innah96 or Hannah Reynolds until I saw Aari’s Goodreads review for the author’s second youth work book. She only had to say that the writing reminded me of Jen Bennett and I rushed to the library to see if they had a copy
2022 is really looking like my year to rediscover my love for IA because a whole bunch of my favorites this year were in the IA age group. This book, in particular, had everything I look for in a book: an epistolary element, a super sizzling romance, friendship, and a great mother-daughter bond.
The Summer of Lost Letters begins with 17-year-old Abby discovering a series of love letters sent to her late grandmother by a mysterious person named Edward. Abby’s tight-lipped grandmother, her O’ma, never mentioned this Edward nor did she ever mention her connection to Nantucket. In an effort to discover more about his mysterious history, he goes to Nantucket for the summer. In Nantucket, she finds more than she bargained for.
It embodies everything I love about a good summer romance that starts with a great cast. Abby was a wonderful character, hiding behind this slightly shy but sarcastic facade. She is subtly grieving for her grandmother and her quest in Nantucket has left her with no way to maintain a relationship with her grandmother. She’s also a history geek, so this is the perfect way to put her interests to good use.
Book Review: Letters To Amelia By Lindsay Zier Vogel — Cloud Lake Literary
Although the primary purpose of the trip is to discover Edward’s relationship with her grandmother, it ends up having a significant impact on her personal life. She learns to let go a little and also to open herself up to new friendships and new crushes. As much as I loved the historical detective work in this book, my favorite were the funnier moments when she was able to fully embrace life. Sure, Abby is a teenager, and there are times when, as an adult, you want to shake her teenage shoulders. This happened to me when she started to become almost obsessive about an inheritance belonging to her grandmother. I had to remind myself though that this wasn’t just a teenager, but one who was also grieving.
Ebina O’ma may not be a physical presence in this book, but she remains larger than life. She is key to the book. I liked how the author gave us an insight into the resilient person she was through excerpts of her letters. O’ma escaped Nazi Germany when she was just 4 years old, so the content is sometimes difficult and devastating. Plus there’s that thread of her unrequited love and her lack of a HEA that makes the story all the more endearing.
However, there are moments of hope, especially when Abby learns from her grandmother’s life story. Furthermore, I loved how it helped strengthen Ebby’s already strong bond with her own mother. Healthy mother-daughter relationships in IA are always welcome in my books. Abby and her mother have an open relationship rooted in communication and love. It made me miss my own mom and you bet I immediately called her as soon as I finished this book.
It wouldn’t be Nick’s summer book complete without some swoon-worthy romance. Friends, the book brings. Ah! There’s just something about young love that gets me. Abby and Noah initially clash because he is Edward’s grandson. He fears that Abby’s questions will cause chaos in his already complicated family and hurt his grandmother. So there’s some antagonism at first, but he eventually agrees to help her if she promises to take things slow.
Book Review: The Screwtape Letters
As the two team up, the attraction between them simmers. It’s a slow romance, but one that gave me a ton of great feelings. Noah is a complicated boy and not very open about his feelings, so when he does little things here and there to show how much he cares in moments of tenderness towards Abby, the little girl might just melt and sigh with happiness. He is so devoted to her and it is incredibly sweet to watch. Their initial antagonism also meant that there was plenty of banter and will-they-won’t-they spirit in their relationship. I loved every minute of it, including the inevitable pre-HEA breakup.
Aaria’s comp of Hannah Reynolds to Jen Bennett and Sarah Dessen is pretty spot on, in my opinion. If you haven’t read the book yet, I mean
Belongs on your summer TBR. Hannah Reynolds is now an automatic reader for me. I can’t wait to check out her next book and her adult romance!
