Chloe Daschle is beginning to get a complex. After all, she has died perhaps more than any other actress alive. Whether she is acting on film or on stage, it seems like every director hires her to be the girl who dies. So it only makes sense that she wants to change things up and actually take a role where her character not only lives, but maybe even falls in love.

Then something miraculous happens. A good friend contacts her and suggests she audition to star in an upcoming film about to be produced by one of her parents friends. As soon as she reads the script, she agrees that she was born to play this part. After begging her way into an audition, the director agrees with her and gives her the chance of a lifetime.

Soon after landing the lead, she meets the screenwriter at a wedding where she is a bridesmaid. What begins as a chance encounter quickly becomes something truly special.

Chloe soon learns that the screenplay isn’t merely a piece of fiction. In fact, actor turned first-time screenwriter Jesse Gates based the story on one of his own ancestors’ love story which transpired during the Revolutionary War. But will Jesse and Chloe seize their chance at an epic love before it slips through their fingers? Or will they replicate the true story of unrequited love that they are committing to film?

The Love Letter is one of those rich, multilayered, well-crafted novels that demands our full attention. From its opening pages, readers will connect to the finely drawn characters of Jesse and Chloe, as well as the historical characters who reside in upcountry South Carolina during the midst of the Revolutionary War.

As the story vacillates between past and present, we realize how closely each of us is connected to those that came before us and how their simplest actions impact us today. More importantly, this is the kind of book that reminds all of us to be courageous, and to be willing to fight for what it is that is truly important in life, namely, love. Do yourself a favor and make a date with one of the best love stories I’ve encountered in years. The Love Letter is pure magic and will be treasured by readers for years to come.
