Yours Truly, Thomas Review

About the Book

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. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I knew nothing about the dead letter office until reading this book. I love it when authors write about something in history that is a bit of an unknown. Penny researches letters to find clues on who it was sent to or from. There in lies the rest of the story with a man whom letters she finds. Writing letters is so much fun. Growing up I had multiple pen pals and I still find time to write a letter every once in a while. Not only is writing the letter fun but who doesn't love to get one in the mail? I think there should be more letter writing in the world and from reading this book it has encouraged me to do so. 
This story is fairly predictable and light in my opinion. I enjoyed it as an easy read. 

Four Stars.
