    Not your average love story but that is what draws you to it. The mystery, the wanting the two characters to meet. The very unforgettable and not your average meeting. This novel is endearing and so normal! It was an epic fail that was completely adorable. I received an advance rea...

    A sweet story with a fun twist! Penny and Thomas don't meet until much later in the book than usual, which made me anxious for the story to get on with it. And then she doesn't tell him about her connection to him with the letters, which made me even more anxious for them to get on wit...

    I adore when a story brings to light a concept that I?ve never read about, or in this case, an entirely new thing to me. In this case, it's the Dead Letter Office. Penny works as a clerk in this office and opens other people?s mail when there is nowhere left for them to be delivere...

    I found this book because it had a DLO (Dead Letter Office). I'm a huge fan of Signed Sealed Delivered on Hallmark which has given me a love of all things mail. This book did not disappoint! I thought I had a pretty good idea of how the story would go from the back cover and I'm ha...

    Letter writing is pretty rare these days. I have fond memories of writing and receiving letters throughout my school days extending into college. There is something special about receiving a written letter. I can relate to Penny in that way. Penny works in the dead letter department in...

    I wanted to like this book so badly. It's about the Dead Letter Office (So, kind of a Signed, Sealed, Delivered like book), it's got a great premise, and the MC seemed to be really sweet. Just a note though, this is marketed as a standalone, but it very connected to her first book. ...

    FTC Disclosure: Revell Reads gave me a complimentary copy of this book. A positive review was not required. These are my honest thoughts. The cover is what first drew my attention to this book. I was so intrigued by the barn and the letter that I really wanted to know more about thi...

    First thing I love about this book - the theme of the forgotten art of writing letters, handwritten letters. There is such power in the written word and when someone takes the time to hand write a note or a letter it adds intimacy and shows such love. The beauty of the handwritten love...

    Gentle and sweet, this prairie romance put me in mind of Janette Oke's novels. It's the kind that can renew one's faith in humanity--that though there is evil in the world, there is good too. Though there is hurt, there is also healing. I loved learning about the Dead Letter Office ...

    Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham is an emotionally engaging Christian novel. I found myself deeply immersed into the characters' lives. What they felt and saw, I too felt and saw. A young woman works at a dead letter office. Letters that get lost or cannot find their destination a...

    What a fun story! I think I'm pretty partial to any story that has letters at its heart. I know I've shared this in a couple different reviews but I grew up with the best pen pals in the world. My grandparents! I loved checking the mailbox everyday and receiving a letter from one of my...

    It was so much fun revisiting Azure Springs again. I feel like the characters are friends that I could stop in and have a cup of tea and a piece of pie with. Can you remember the last time you wrote a letter ? I can't either though I do remember having a foreign pen pal as a teen. Wha...

    The premise of this story was amazing: a dead letter office worker who feels pity for a man who?s running out west yet yearning for his love back home. As the story unfolds, there are many more juicy story bits that are creative, but it?d spoil it to tell you. The romance in thi...

    Original Review, June 30th, 2019: Reserving rating for the time being. I just don't feel right about it until either this book gets a few more reviews or I've cooled down enough to give the rating I feel a great author/writer like this deserves. :P Which sounds dumb, but there 'tis....

    Rachel Fordham has done it again! As soon as I read her debut novel The Hope of Azure Springs, I was an instant fan, and have been anxiously waiting for the arrival of this one. Although it's a standalone, it also takes place in Azure Springs, and so we are visited by some of our favor...

    Have you ever read a book so good you cried when it ended? Yours Truly, Thomas was that book for me. I didn't actually cry because I'm not much of a crier, but my heart and soul definitely did. This book was heart-warming, soulful, and full of beautiful, compassionate people. So...
