The truth lies between the lines...
A year ago, Dovie Larkin’s life was shattered when her fiancé committed suicide just weeks before their wedding. Now, plagued by guilt, she has become a fixture at the cemetery where William is buried, visiting his grave daily, waiting for answers she knows will never come.
Then one day, she sees an old woman whose grief mirrors her own. Fascinated, she watches the woman leave a letter on a nearby grave. Dovie ignores her conscience and reads the letter—a mother’s plea for forgiveness to her dead daughter—and immediately needs to know the rest of the story.
As she delves deeper, a collection of letters from the cemetery’s lost and found begins to unravel a decades-old mystery involving one of Charleston’s wealthiest families. But even as Dovie seeks to answer questions about another woman’s past—questions filled with deception, betrayal, and heartbreaking loss—she starts to discover the keys to love, forgiveness, and finally embracing the future.
Tissues people.. Tissues~!
Massively emotional there is a blend of grief, hope and devastation suffering and healing all blended within this book.
It seems odd that you could find healing in another persons pain but that's what happens here.
I really liked the sense of humanity in this book. These characters were people with faults and with pasts but they connect through them and find a common ground with eachother and the reader.
There are so many different layers to this book and its cast that really capture your heart and tug at the heart strings.
If you haven't read it, its beautiful. I highly recommend.
