Yours Truly, Thomas {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book for consideration. Post contains affiliate links. All thoughts are 100% my own. 




For three years, Penny Ercanbeck has been opening other people's mail. Dead ends are a reality for clerks at the Dead Letter Office. Still she dreams of something more--a bit of intrigue, a taste of romance, or at least a touch less loneliness. When a letter from a brokenhearted man to his one true love falls into her hands, Penny seizes this chance to do something heroic. It becomes her mission to place this lost letter into the hands of its intended recipient.

Thomas left his former life with no intention of ending up in Azure Springs, Iowa. He certainly didn't expect a happy ending after what he had done. All he wanted to do was run and never look back. In a moment of desperation, he began to write, never really expecting a reply.

When Penny's undertaking leads her to the intriguing man who touched her soul with his words, everything grows more complicated. She wants to find the rightful owner of the letter and yet she finds herself caring--perhaps too much--for the one who wrote it.


Rachel Fordham is the author of The Hope of Azure Springs. She started writing when her children began begging her for stories at night. She'd pull a book from the shelf, but they'd insist she make one up. Finally, she paired her love of good stories with her love of writing and hasn't stopped since. She lives with her husband and children on an island in the state of Washington.


There's something about writing letters isn't there? I remember as a kid, having a handful of pen pals throughout the years. I couldn't tell you any names or what any of those letters contained, but I remember the feeling of receiving them. In the world of email and instant communication, there is still something great about a letter. During my husband's deployments, while emails were also constant, it was those hand written letters back and forth that I treasure most. To know that someone took the time and effort to write to YOU. It is this love of written letters that initially drew me to this book. While I had never heard of a 'dead letters department', I found myself immediately intrigued. Oh, the untold stories to be found there!

In this book, Penny is a clerk at such an office where she discovers a series of letters from Thomas to a woman named Clara. She is immediately pulled into his words...leading her on a rather unexpected journey. I won't give any spoilers, but I promise this story will have you anxiously waiting to see how it all unfolds. It is a sweet story, and a timeless one at that. I feel like this is one of those books that truly is going to stick with me- not only for it's unique story, but also for the charming characters and romance that the author has given us. I believe this is a book that even those who are not big fans of the historical romance genre can truly enjoy! It truly is just a beautiful story!
