Postmarked Ever After: A Review
Who doesn’t like a good cozy? Those stories set in small town Americana with enough tension to keep us interested and leaving us with a warm fuzzy feeling of satisfaction. Mary L. Ball’s Postmarked Ever After is such a book. It’s a romance, not a cozy mystery—you know, those dealing with murders—but it does revolve around a secret.
Set in a small coastal town in North Carolina, the story presents its heroine, Serena Gray, with a unique dilemma when she receives a letter. Her deceased husband had a child he never knew about. Then strange things happen, drawing Serena to that child and her widowed father, Adam.
As her relationship with Adam deepens, Serena fears her secret will hurt the two people she loves. Her struggle in deciding how to reveal the secret tests Serena’s spiritual strength, while giving her the chance to love again.
The kindle version had a few editorial errors, but that in no way detracts from Mary’s smooth, easy writing style. The characters are well developed and descriptions are woven in so as not to draw the reader out of the story.
This is a feel good story that contains enough intrigue to keep you guessing and leaves you believing in love ever after.
A delayed letter and a message from afar unite two hearts.
Recently widowed Serena Gray battles the daily drama of the emergency room, as well as her grief. When a mysterious letter arrives, it raises questions about a past she’d only heard her beloved husband speak about. While on hospital rounds, a child has a brush with death and recounts a vivid dream that bears a message. Will she risk happiness for the truth or keep a secret from the past?
Mary L. Ball writes Christian fiction. She lives in North Carolina and weaves stories about real life problems, blended with romance. Mary hopes to encourage people to see the wonder of love and divine guidance. When she’s not working on her latest story, she enjoys fishing, reading, and singing with her husband at various functions. Mary is on Facebook and Twitter.
