Publisher's Weekly Liked The Mailbox!!



Just had to share this review by PW for my forthcoming novel, The Mailbox. Have you pre-ordered your copy yet? You can at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, or Christianbook.

And be sure to tell your friends about it!!

The Mailbox Marybeth Whalen. David C. Cook, $14.99 paper (384p)
ISBN 978-0-7814-0369-6

Nonfiction author Whalen pens her first novel, centered on an actual landmark mailbox in Sunset Beach, N.C. Over a span of some 20 years, Lindsey Adams makes summer visits to the Kindred Spirit mailbox and deposits an annual written update on her life. When her husband divorces her, Lindsey makes the trek again and meets up with long-lost love, Campbell Forrester, whose own marriage dissolved years earlier. Unsure they can rekindle their youthful love, both Lindsey and Campbell struggle to make the leap from teenage infatuation to a lasting adult commitment. Whalen's use of a mailbox as the tie between people, memories, and romantic love is intriguing, and she makes it work more effectively than a reader might expect. (June)
