The Chippendale Letter

In The Chippendale Letter we follow a young widow whose husband passed away during the Vietnam War. Patti moved in with her family and took courses on furniture restoration to help fill her days. Her sister, Katie, found a lovely old wooden chest at a yard sale. But it is not just any wooden chest, it is a genuine Chippendale wooden chest. Little does Patti and her family know, this chest will send her on a mission of hope to reunite loved ones. Armed with a letter she finds in the back of the drawers and going off the two names mentioned, Pattie seeks out George Bauer and Charlotte DeLotte. What Patti doesn’t expect to find is a new love for herself.

This intimate and emotional romance novel was one of the sweetest and most heart-wrenching stories I have read in a very long time. I was not sure what to expect at first, as I thought the story would just be about a woman moving on with her life, but the book turned out to be so much more than that. Not only do readers get to find out about Patti’s life, but readers also get to find out about George and Charlotte; two equally compelling characters. A whirlwind of sentimental romance left me wanting to know what happens next.

The author methodically creates the characters within the story, so that by the end they feel like real people that readers will easily be able to understand, if not relate to. I enjoyed watching these characters develop and evolve and I think this will appeal to anyone looking for a well constructed character driven narrative.

The characters really stand out even within the riveting plot of this historical romance novel. I really enjoyed the plot twists as I think they played exceptionally well in the story and never felt contrived. I found it all to be excellent. But even with the fantastic plot twists I was left wanting more by the end, maybe due to how it ends or maybe due to my connection to the characters.

The Chippendale Letter is an absorbing love story that will appeal to readers looking for a touching historical romance novel that explores different periods in American history through a personal lens.
