Quite an interesting book! What would you do if you suddenly received a letter with a postmark from 21-years-ago? What if it is from someone you don’t know or don’t remember and the person is expressing his love for you? How would you handle it? I suppose the answers would depend a lot on your current circumstances. It made me wonder if a letter my sweetheart sent me in 1964 that I never received might mysteriously appear someday. Emily Patterson is practically floored when she gets the letter. She gave up on God when her parents died, but suddenly things are happening that cause her to pray. It’s a wonderful story that prompts the reader to seriously think about miracles. I guess there will always be differences of opinions on what constitutes a true miracle, but I’ll leave that to everyone else to sort out. I recommend the book to lovers of Christian romance.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of Postmark from the Past from Vickie Phelps for an honest review. What’s not to love about mysterious letters from the past, song dedications by a friend you haven’t seen in twenty-one years and a mysterious abandoned little girl? Nothing. You are right there with Emily as her past comes rushing back with each letter she receives. The emotions she feels at each new revelation of betrayal are real and easily identified with. Plus, they are well written. Not once did I feel like rolling my eyes and saying ‘grow up’. (From me, that’s high praise.) Postmark from the Past is. . . . Sweet is not the right word, too gooey. Neither is nice, too bland. Warm and cuddly doesn’t do it, either. Good (overused, I know) but it is just that; a good book that leaves you satisfied. An easy read that leaves you smiling.

Postmark from the Past is an engaging mystery and a truly heartfelt story. It’s the tale of forbidden love, forgiveness, changes, and Christmastime miracles. The story of a forty-something woman who never married quickly pulled me in as she starts receiving decades-old love letters from a soldier during the Vietnam era. As the story begins unraveling, you’ll root for the hero and heroine and cheer the unlikely angels that started it all. A secondary story about a young orphan will also stir your heart. All in all Postmark from the Past is a wonderful Christmas romance.
