Molly Alcott didn’t expect to open her mailbox one summer morning and find an old letter stuffed between bills and a supermarket flyer. Penned in familiar handwriting, dated over fifteen years ago, the letter was written to Molly after her first date with the man she’ll never forget.
Week after week, new letters appear. Each marks an event in the history of their epic love affair. Each heals a wound. Each holds the confession of the man who still owns Molly’s heart.
The letters are full of promise, hope and love, but truth be told, Molly wishes she could unread them all.
Because the man who wrote these letters is not the one sending them.
5 Heart Review by Ashley
Welp...I'm a mushy, emotional mess after finishing Letters to Molly. While I've been a big fan of Devney Perry's work for a while now, this one spoke to me on another level. Maybe it's the fact that I've had to fight for a relationship. Maybe it was the sweetness of Max and Kali. Or maybe it was that Finn and Molly were both so wonderfully flawed. Whatever it was, I did not want to put this down.
I loved that both Finn and Molly were both a little broken from how things ended between them. Yes, time had passed, life had moved on, but they were in a holding pattern. They had never resolved some of the old wounds that hurt them. But when some old letters started to show up, it forced them to take a long, hard look at their relationship. Past and present.
Can you say emotional roller coaster? Revisiting their shared past, the good and the hard times, made them both look in the mirror and own up to their own mistakes. It wasn't easy. It was hard. Painful. Laced with melancholy. They were both resigned for things to continue as they were. Until disaster struck and they were all thrown into survival mode. Hard decisions had to be made. Sacrifices. Pride set aside.
Devney Perry took loss and family and hope and forgiveness and spun it in a way that was completely captivating. I was racing to see how it would all end, while, at the same time, never wanting it to. Letters to Molly is second-chance romance in it's purest form. There was no other way for Finn and Molly to be happy except with each other. It took a whole heck of a lot of work and even more tears and fear facing for them to get there, but the reward was oh so very sweet.
