Letters to Lincoln by Tracie Podger Review

Letters to Lincoln

What do you do when your husband dies unexpectedly?
You write him a letter, of course.

What do you do when someone answers that letter?

Dani was mid-thirties when she found herself alone and without her soulmate.
Coming to terms with her loss took all her strength and her voice.

If Dani thought she’d experienced the worst life could throw at her, she was wrong.

Lies, deceit, confusion surround her.
A stranger, a builder, and a priest comfort her.

Letters to Lincoln is a contemporary romance about overcoming loss, finding the strength to rebuild a life, and learning to forgive.

For readers over the age of 18.

Omg… where do I start this review. This book just took me by surprise! It was so well written. I couldn’t stop reading it! It gives such a full clear picture of everything. I was shocked, sad & angry while reading this book! I was all over the place!

The beginning of this book ripped me to shreds! It starts off so powerful. What Dani went through I can’t even imagine. The pain she felt. Just broke my heart.
We go on her journey of getting her life back together again. She writes a letter getting all her feelings out never expecting someone to answer her letter. And that’s where we get introduced to Lincoln. Lincoln and Dani start to write letters to each other. Just telling each other personal things about their life’s.

Dani starts to to feel normal again. She starts to see past all her grief. Those letters were a big part of her being able to move forward. Then just when she finds a sliver of happiness. The rug get pulled right from under her.
Oh man. It was a blow I didn’t see coming!
I was in shock! I felt as if it had happened to me! I was so angry.

As I read on I felt the whole Trey situation should’ve been dealt with a little more. Because as time went on. Dani just wanted things to be over (with the surprise situation)
But I wanted details. I wanted to know why. The way the book was written…their were no problems between them. So I would’ve liked to go on her journey to find answers. At one point in the book I thought we were going to get some. But it just never happened.
I just felt the whole situation should’ve been more. Especially with her brother Christian. I wanted more details there too.
Everything just felt left open.

I really liked Miller. He became a big part in Dani’s life. Just like Dani…. Miller had gone through so much. So they both connected with their tragedies.

I loved Dani’s dad. He was such a rock for her. He really got her through everything. He never rushed her. He always knew she would come around. And he always knew what to say to her.

“Every day it kills me to see you in such pain. But I can tell you this. One day you’ll wake up and the sun will shine, the birds will sing, and it will lift your heart a little. One day you’ll speak, when you have something to say. Right now, you have nothing to give, so sit back and be looked after. I’m your dad, this is what I needed to live for.”

This book was such a nice surprise. I really enjoyed everything about it. My only gripe about it is the whole Trey situation. Other than that… this book was really good!!
