Unauthored Letters by Tara C. Allred
About The Book:
Dr. John Sanders has given Rebecca Brownell a new chance at life. After an isolated childhood, an abused adolescence, and an institutionalized existence,
Rebecca is finally free to conquer her demons and build a promising life.
However, once Rebecca achieves her dreams, eerily personal letters begin arriving in the mail. Letters sent from someone who knows far more about her past
than anyone should. Letters that intimately question Rebecca’s sanity.
And then the letters turn threatening…
Unauthored Letters is the inspiring tale of a woman’s troubled past, a man’s quest to protect her, and their battle to fight a mysterious foe. It’s a story
of trust strained by illness, love tried by lies, and promises terrorized by illusive danger.
Unauthored Letters by Tara C. Allred is one of those books that makes you really root for the main characters. During the entire story we see Rebecca struggle to overcome an extremely troubled childhood and mental illness and try to find faith in herself as well as the ability to trust others, only to constantly be thwarted along the way. It seems like both Rebecca and John have lives that are decided for them without much control of their own.
In this story there is suicide, corruption, mental illness, lies and secrets. The mystery is well written and although we can guess who the letters are coming from and what is really going on, the story line keeps you interested. I read this book in one reading because I wanted to know what happened with both Rebecca and John. I didn’t want to put the book down. I wanted to read to the end and see if they both go a happy ending.
There are some extremely vicious people in their lives. But there are also some amazing, strong, loving folks as well. We get to see how evil the world can be but we also see how a few people an make such a difference in someones life.
This book is pretty long but if you’re looking for a mystery with well detailed twists and turns, check out Unauthored Letters by Tara C. Allred.
