LETTERS TO MOLLY
Maysen Jar Book 2
By Devney Perry
Release Day: JUNE 18
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.
Review by Jennifer Mitchell, Bibliolater
Review: Letters to Molly by Devney Perry is a beautiful, emotionally charged second chance story between divorcees. It is not your typical second chance romance. Molly and Finn do not have an easy path……
On the day they met, the two became inseparable. They were so in love….until they weren’t. Slowly over time, their relationship denigrates. They grow apart and somehow find themselves divorced with shared custody of two children. Six years post divorce, Molly and Finn’s story begins…again….
Finn and Molly still care about each other. They are very amicable towards each other for the sake of the kids. Although it was hard, they are finally in a good place UNTIL the letters addressed to Molly start to arrive. Now Molly and Finn are both forced to think about how their relationship went wrong.
And wow, did this story have all the feels. Devney Perry’s ability to write such an incredibly raw story is breathtaking. Emotion just pours off the pages. While reading I was simultaneously in awe and so incredibly sad as I learned the answers to the very questions Molly and Finn were forced to answer…questions like: How did we get here? Weren’t we so in love? Didn’t we have it all? How much of our separation was my fault? Where did I go wrong? Could and should we try again?
You see, in order for Finn and Molly to work out their differences, they both have to admit and own their mistakes. Molly has an easier time than Finn in doing so. Finn struggles a lot with acceptance and forgiveness. Molly, however, struggles with giving Finn a second chance. She’s just not sure if risking it all again is for the best….
Gah. Excuse my lack for a better word there. All that emotion…that rawness…it’s so intense and so beautiful and so blue that only a Disney villain or the Grinch wouldn’t be affected.
