LETTERS TO MY FATHER by Crissie Ann Leonard is a touching, heartwarming, and uplifting novel about God and holding on to Him while you are in despair. The novel has an appealing and unusual pretext: a woman buys letters and then finds the people who wrote them with the help of her best friend, who happens to be a private eye. Since this is fiction, the reader is willing to suspend disbelief and go along with the story. While the premise is not impossible, it is a tad improbable. However, the author writes well in first person POV, and the letters, by extension, are also in first person. It's clear that the author has a heart for people and for the Lord. The reader's spirit is moved while reading each letter.
Overall, this is a wonderful novel that will appeal to any reader with a heart, and especially to Christian readers. This reviewer hopes this novelist will write many more books.
