This is probably my favourite Hathaways book so far (I haven't read the 2nd and 4th, I'm so sorry Leooo.. >.<)

some background story:
Beatrix Hathaway began to write letters for Captain Christopher Phelan who served in the war. He was once a jovial young man, but the war had torn his soul and now he was broken and traumatized. Beatrix's letters were his anchor to humanity. And Beatrix, sweet Beatrix of course she fell in love through his letters - or more like the way she treated the wounded animals she found in her backyard. But she didn't write the letters under her name, instead she wrote them pretending to be Prudence, her annoying and gold digger friend who was sort of been courted by Phelan *scratches head*

I cried for the first 8 chapters because those letters are so heartbreaking *sniffs* and when they met sparks fly and never faded *sniffles again* One time Phelan decided to have a revenge for the people who tricked him about the letters but once he found out he was just somehow decided not to do that. Huh? It could have been such a great twist!!

and because I just watched The A-Team before reading this book, I sorta imagine Bradley Cooper all the time, LOL.

Anyway, Beatrix is now my fave Hathaway sister, sorry Amelia...
