Letters To My Future Husband

A few months ago I received an email. Lisa McKendrick's new book, Letters To My Future Husband, was going to print and she needed a few author endorsements. I remembered how worried I was when I went through the same process with Becoming Beauty and how relieved I was when some amazing authors came on board. (And let's be honest, I was a tad flattered.) However, I approached Letters with my heart in my throat. Because, what if I didn't like it? Could I really say, Hey, this isn't my style, maybe you should ask someone else, if I thought it was rubbish? 

I needn't have worried. 

Lisa is an established author with three other books under her belt. She knows how to blend romance and humor perfectly. I'm a singleton myself, but I never would have guessed how relatable I would find her spunky main character, Sophia Stark, from Letters. Sophie's journey through life and the Big Bad Dating World touched my heart and kept me laughing until the very end. My favorite element of the story is her preteen mentor on the journey, a sassy ten-year-old who will one day be Sophia's daughter. As you might expect, Sophie's interactions with her daughter grow her as a woman and enrich the experience of finding her future husband.

As a helpless romantic, Letters had me cheering, cringing, and occasionally berating Sophia for her bonehead choices, all of which only serve to make her a more lovable heroine. Letters is a story that heart and soul celebrates womanhood. It's one that both married and singletons alike will appreciate and that women of all ages can enjoy.
