The Australian Pen Pal
Rachel Monroe has lost her husband, Tom, to cancer. During Tom's illness, she promised him that she would pursue the dreams that she had deferred during their marriage and his illness. Honoring Tom and her promise to him has made her a successful novelist.
When she is sent to Australia on a publicity tour, she seizes the opportunity to search for her teenage pen pal, who abruptly stopped writing.
What she finds is that life, in all of its aspects and fullness, can indeed move forward again, after loss.
I found Rachel's story moving. It was satisfying and inspirational to witness Rachel's heart learn to open up again.
