Summary of The Wednesday Letters Summary of The Wednesday Letters Reviews for The Wednesday Letters An Excerpt from The Wednesday Letters
The surprise New York Times bestseller, from an author who delivers “American storytelling at its best.”

The story of marriage, family, and forgiveness that has become not just a bestseller but an instant classic.


Their story begins with one letter on their wedding night, a letter from the groom, promising to write his bride every week—for as long they both shall live.

Thirty-nine years later, Jack and Laurel Cooper die in each other’s arms. And when their grown children return to the family B&B to arrange the funeral, they discover thousands of letters.

The letters they read tell of surprising joys and sorrows. They also hint at a shocking family secret—and ultimately force the children to confront a life-changing moment of truth…

“A lovely story: heartening, wholesome, humorous,suspenseful, and redemptive. It resonates with the true meaning of family and the life-healing power of forgiveness all wrapped up in a satisfying ending.”—Publishers Weekly

“Romance and magic still live!”—Glenn Beck, talk-radio and CNN host

“Jason’s ability to write compelling fiction is a gift. I am of course writing a letter to my wife of 44 years on Wednesday.”—Kieth Merrill, Academy Award-winning film director
