Waiting on Wednesday: Letters to the Lost

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
Pub. Date: April 4, 2017



Goodreads says, "Juliet Young has always written letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother’s death, she leaves letters at her grave. It’s the only way Juliet can cope.  Declan Murphy isn’t the sort of guy you want to cross. In the midst of his court-ordered community service at the local cemetery, he’s trying to escape the demons of his past.  When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can't resist writing back. Soon, he’s opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. But neither of them knows that they're not actually strangers. When real life at school interferes with their secret life of letters, Juliet and Declan discover truths that might tear them apart. This emotional, compulsively-readable romance will sweep everyone off their feet."
I love the synopsis for this one. There's something about letter writing that seems so romantic now since it's almost like a lost art form. What do you guys think?

  8. I love letter writing so that has my interest piqued. I like that she continues to write to her mother even after her passing. That's sad and yet sweet at the same time. Seems like a beautiful and emotional story. Thanks for sharing. Hope we enjoy it :)

    Happy Wednesday!

  12. I LITERALLY just swooned when I read the premise for this book. It sounds so dark and so haunting that HOW COULD I NOT try it out? :) I like the fact that they really know each other but..."they don't." I smell drama. <3
