4 Stars From Romantic Times!


I am celebrating a good review from Romantic Times. Thought I would share it with you here!

THE MAILBOX
by Marybeth Whalen
Genre: Mainstream, Inspirational
4 star RT Rating


Whalen’s debut novel will speak to readers on many levels. The book moves seamlessly between past and present, giving a glimpse into the characters’ lives and how they have changed over the years. The heartfelt love story will surprise and delight readers.

For 20 years, Lindsey Adams has been visiting the Kindred Spirit mailbox at Sunset Beach, N.C. She writes letters summarizing her summers, leaving them in the mailbox for the kindred spirit — a secret “keeper of the mailbox” — to find. When she first writes as a teen, Lindsey is in love with Campbell, but things don’t go as planned and the two lose touch. Lindsey and Campbell reconnect as adults and must work through their pasts to move forward into the future. (DAVID C. COOK, Jun., 320 pp., $14.99)

Marybeth! Wow! That sounds great! I just wanted to thank you for leaving a comment on Karen's site a little while ago. I think that your lead character's name is great as well! Also, I am reading "For the Write Reason" right now. What a great book concept! I'm loving all the good info, but am trying not to feel scared by the statistics for unpublished authors. I am looking forward to meeting you, too. Annie has told me great things about your family! :)
