The Note (The Note)
When the unthinkable happens . . .
En route from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Tampa International, Flight 848 bursts into flames and crashes into Tampa Bay. All 261 passengers and crew are killed.

En route to Tampa from NYC, a flight crashes into the Gulf of Mexico, killing all on board. Several days later, a note reading "T, All is forgiven, I love you. Dad" washes up on a beach and a woman gives the note to struggling journalist Peyton MacGruder, who uses the note to jumpstart her failing career as "The Heart Healer", a sort-of-advice columnist.

This book starts out with airplane crash, a possible lost of position in at a well known newspaper, and a past that Peyton wanted to forget. Angela takes you through Peyton's though proc ...more

The Note had an exceptional ending. When I started this book, I was expecting that kind of brilliance to shine through the entire book. Unfortunately I felt, the first half of the novel was a bit slow paced. I mean could put the book down without picking it up for another 5-6 hours. That should explain why it took me so long to finish it. The writing style was not very catching. But after Peyton goes to meet the first candidate, the pace began to pick up and I ...more

Some of you speak love with wine and roses. For other, "I love you," is best said by breakfast in bed, carefully set aside sport sections, or night out at the movies, complete with buttered popcorn.
Children spell love T-I-M-E. So, I think, do older folks.
Teenagers spell it T-R-U-S-T. Sometimes parents spell love N-O.
But no matter what the letters, the emotion beneath the wording must be tangible, demonstrable, and sincere.”
