LETTERS FROM GRACE: Release day blog post featuring CJ Carmichael

Love Letters & A Trilogy Giveaway

When my father passed away a few years ago we found a small, innocuous box at the very back of his closet. Inside were all the love letters he had mailed to our mother during his time in the Canadian navy, before they were married.

My father was a gruff man, not given to praise or signs of affection. So finding these letters, full of love and sweet words for our mother, was such a treasure.

I recently asked my newsletter subscribers to share their stories of saved love letters and received so many heart warming, funny, and sad stories. I really do hope that email and text messages don’t signal the end of the old-fashioned love letter for our future generations.

Love letters feature large in my new release Letters From Grace. In this book (based on a premise from my older novel, Jessie’s Father, which is no longer in print) a daughter finds a stash of love letters from her widowed father’s high school sweetheart and sets out to match-make. I’m so pleased with early reviews from Publishers Weekly and readers. I hope you will add this book to your TBR pile!


For your chance to win the complete Shannon Sisters trilogy in paperback format (autographed of course!), please tell me whether you have saved any love letters?

Giveaway will be open until 9/30/21. Open in the US & Canada only.
