Rosalind ‘Lin’ Townsend had a very abusive childhood, but one weekend, attending a party with a friend, she met Nick Pemberton, a rich guy with whom she thought she was in love. They saw each other for about a week before she stopped hearing from him. At the age of seventeen, she discovered that she was pregnant with Nick’s child. When her father found out, he tossed her out on the street with just the clothes on her back. Her mother was too afraid of her father to protest his actions. Needing help and wanting her child to have contact with his father, she started sending him letters with pictures, but every one she sent came back marked ‘return to sender.’ She saved the letters and carried them everywhere with her. Though she had been tempted to burn them at one time, her best friend Sally talked her out of it, telling her she may need them some day. However, when her son was twelve, she told him that his father had died. Lin went to work as a waitress, saving every penny she could and when the owners of the diner wanted to sell it, she arranged a deal with them. She turned the restaurant around and made a fortune.
In the meantime, Nick was tricked into marrying Chelsea, a woman from the wrong side of the tracks, whom he did not love. Though he tried to get out of the marriage, his father would not let him. His father even put a clause in his will that if Nick divorced
At the age of eighteen, Lin’s son Will, who wanted to be a veterinarian, coincidentally started at the same university where his father had gone in
Emotion-packed and exciting, RETURN TO SENDER is an unforgettable story. I absolutely loved this story. Lin finds love when she least expects it, but will it work out after everything she has done? Lin also has an ideal support team who stick with her, no matter what. She was dedicated to her son and worked hard to provide for him, despite the odds that were against her. Though she came through it beautifully, she still longed for revenge and carried the letters with her wherever she went. Filled with tears, joy, friendship, love, kidnapping, an originally creative plot, compelling and complex characters, betrayal and intrigue, this book will be remembered long after the last page is read and the book is closed. RETURN TO SENDER is a welcome addition to my keeper shelf.
