The Letter Tree by Rachel Fordham.

About the Book

Romeo and Juliet meets You’ve Got Mail in 1920s New York when hidden letters change everything for two lost souls and the community around them.

Seven years ago, a letter left inside a tree brought Laura Bradshaw an anonymous friend who helped her navigate the tragic loss of her mother and gave her something to look forward to despite the overbearing hand of her father. Life would be far bleaker, if not for her beloved Letter Tree, her dear friend, and her secret trips to the Buffalo Zoo. But even these rays of light are threatened when her father decides to play matchmaker in order to further his business goals.

When Isaac Campbell learns that his letter friend is destined to court another, he balks at the suggestion and begs her to break her rule of namelessness and meet him. Her words have endeared her to him, he’s ready to fall at her knees and beg her to choose him—that is until he sees her face. The stranger he’s become so attached to is not a stranger . . . but the only daughter of his family’s sworn enemy.

Can the grown children of feuding parents bridge the chasm between them? Or is the divide too deep—and too wide?

The Letter Tree by Rachel Fordham is a sweet historical romance. It’s a Romeo and Juliet tale with an episilatory slant.

I loved the writing of this story, and the letters mixed in added to the layers. I loved seeing the two main characters interact. Watching their romance grow was so sweet.

If you enjoy sweet historical romance with a touch of mystery, then grab yourself a copy of The Letter Tree. It’s a sweet story.
