A story about young love, first love, true love, timeless love,
and the power of love letters.
It’s doomed to fail.
Mark has adored Bethany since middle school, and she’s finally giving him a chance. Only, he’s clumsy at romance and knows he’ll lose her because of it.
Bethany thinks Mark is sweet. Only, she’s afraid to commit her whole heart to him because he’s going into the army and she’s headed off to college.
Fifty years earlier, a boy and a girl from the same high school shared an amazing love story. They have now returned as ghosts and are interfering in Mark and Bethany’s relationship.
Who are they? Why do they care what happens to Mark and Bethany?
From the author:
All the Love You Write is a full-length novel that began as a novella called Passing Notes that was published in 2015 (and is still available). It was well-received by readers and reviewers and won a small award from the Rosie Amber Book Reviews blog annual contest. At the urging of many readers, I finally decided to figure out what happens next to Mark and Bethany (and the ghosts). This novel is written in 3 parts. The first part, “Love Letters”, is a revised version of Passing Notes with an additional final chapter. It tells the story of the mysterious ghostly notes Mark finds that teach him to write a perfect love letter to impress the girl he adores. In the second part,”So Near While Apart”, Mark and Bethany find an old shoe box full of love letters written between a young couple back in 1970, during the Vietnam war. It’s a sweet and touching story. Part 3, “Straight From Your Heart” keeps the story going from Bethany’s point of view as she and Mark struggle through the final months of their senior year in high school. She also has a ghost meddling with her, but this ghost isn’t as helpful and can be downright vindictive.
I hope you enjoy the novel.
