This story makes you realize the importance of family and also gives you a message that even if you are going through pain but there is someone out there who is dealing with some bigger issues than you.It also makes you realize that love is always out there, waiting to be found.
The whole letter exchange thing takes place on October and also you get the feel of a perfect rainy day and fall environment which makes it a perfect read for fall.I would recommend the readers not to research on the plot too much and just get right into the book and enjoy it. This is definitely a 5 out of 5 star and I would highly recommend it.
