The Mailbox is a real landmark on the coast of North Carolina.
This was an enjoyable read and one I would pass on to others. It is a story about forgiving the hurts of the past, having faith to move ahead and the beauty of second chances. This was the first book I had read of Marybeth Whalen’s, but I would enjoy reading this authors future writings.
