Book Review: The Note by Angela Hunt

Over the waters of Tampa, Florida Flight 848 bursts into flames.  Everyone on board is killed.  After a week of many news outlets covering the story and believing the people are tired of the subject a woman approaches The Heart Healer for the Tampa Times,  Peyton MacGruder, with an artifact that has washed ashore from the wreckage.  It is a note from a father to his child declaring all is forgiven.  To T, signed Dad.

Given a two week notice because Peyton's Heart Healer has shown no heart in her writing and is nothing like the previous Heart Healer's column, she hopes the search for T can help her find her heart.  Along the way she finds something she never dream she'd come across.

There is real emotion in this story.  Fighting Peyton over the note is a national newscaster wanting to be first.  After the first Heart Healer article on the subject she tries to upstage Peyton in everything she does.  I really felt anger toward this character.  I wanted to give her a punch in the nose.

The story was turned into a Hallmark Channel Movie starring Ted McGinley and Genie Francis.  I try not to hold that against the novel. :p  Hey, it was an okay movie but nothing comparable to Angela Hunt's book.  This is another fabulous piece by one of my favorite Christian authors.

I read this for pure pleasure.  All opinions are my own.  I was not compensated for this review in any way.
