BOOK TOUR & Giveaway - The Last Letter by Kathleen Shoop (Book 1- The Letter Series)

A Father’s Deceit
A Husband’s Betrayal
A Loved One’s Death
A Mother’s Choice
A Daughter’s Resentment
A Time to Forgive

For every daughter who thinks she knows her mother’s story…

Katherine wouldn’t have believed it if she hadn’t found the last letter…

Katherine Arthur’s dying mother arrives on her doorstep, forcing her to relive a past she wanted to forget. When Katherine was young, the Arthur family had been affluent city dwellers until shame sent them running for the prairie, into the unknown. Taking her family, including young Katherine, to live off the land was the last thing Jeanie Arthur had wanted, but she would do her best to make a go of it. For Jeanie’s husband Frank it had been a world of opportunity. Dreaming, lazy Frank. But, it was a society of uncertainty — a domain of natural disasters, temptation, hatred, even death.

Ten-year-old Katherine had loved her mother fiercely, put her trust in her completely, but when there was no other choice, and Jeanie resorted to extreme measures on the prairie to save her family, she tore Katherine’s world apart. Now, seventeen years later, Katherine has found the truth — she has discovered the last letter. After years of anger, can Katherine find it in her heart to understand why her mother made the decisions that changed them all? Can she forgive and finally begin to heal before it’s too late?

"Shoop’s characters breathe. I am blown away by the authenticity of the dialogue and setting. … a gifted writer with a bang-non sense of atmosphere, time, place and social class.  - Bev Kratz Rosenbaum, author of I Was a Teenage Popsicle and Beyond Cool.

"Jeanie is strong, and determined, and her journey is heartfelt. Kathleen Shoop is a marvelous talent, with a fresh new twist on historical fiction. – Selina MacPherson, award-winning historical romance novelist"

 "Shoop mixes the heartwarming closeness of family with the heart-wrenching pain of betrayal to present a story that will resonate fans of exquisite literature. " –Sharon’s Garden of Book Reviews
