Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes a story of long-lost love and its redemption in future generations.

With the colonies at war and his country divided, Hamilton Lightfoot must choose sides: Fight for the British Crown or for the Independence of America. But after witnessing the death of his family at the hands of redcoats, he fears he'll fight for revenge instead of honor. On the verge of a great battle, he pens a letter to Esther, the woman he loves.

Esther Longfellow is in love with Hamilton, but her father is a loyalist, living in upcountry South Carolina and working for a wealthy British lord. When the Revolutionary War comes to her doorstep she is forced to choose between devotion to her father and her love for Hamilton.

Chloe Daschle is the daughter of Hollywood royalty-a great director and an Oscar-winning actress. Yet her career has taken an unexpected turn: She's the queen of death scenes. Trying to break out, she accepts a supporting role in a revolutionary war film. But she longs for the perfect role and the perfect real-life romance. Does happily ever after only exist in the movies

After a life-changing tragedy, MIT graduate Jesse Gates decides to leave his life behind and move to LA to try his hand at acting and screenwriting. When he finds a page from one of his ancestor's letters, he becomes consumed with the love he finds there. Determined to help his grandfather find happiness at the end of his life, Jesse writes and sells a screenplay based on the events surrounding the lost love of previous generations.

When Jesse meets the woman he has cast to play Esther Longfellow-his grandfather's one true love-the stories of all four collide across time and space. The love letter from the past might have more power to affect the future than any of them could have imagined.

Review

'From its epic opening to its unexpected and wholly satisfying conclusion, The Love Letter serves up the perfect blend of modern and historical romance infused with exquisite vulnerability. It sweeps readers into the centuries-old drama of South Carolina and the flash of contemporary Hollywood, and delightfully explores layers of social and emotional duality.'--Booklist 'Hauck's latest is a gorgeous melding of two timelines into an unforgettable story. She does an incredible job balancing the two and the pacing works perfectly . . .What makes this story shine is that it isn't what readers will be expecting, but it will be what readers need. Themes of redemption, love, sacrifice and loyalty resonate throughout.'--RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
