The Mailbox - Review

What would happen if you discovered a mailbox that contained notebooks and pens for recording your personal thoughts that you could leave behind and somehow believe that someone was watching over you in the process?

That's exactly what Kindred Spirit is! It's a mailbox in the middle of a stretch of beach in North Carolina, where you can pour out your thoughts and know that like prayers, someone is listening.

When Lindsey falls in love with Campbell over the summer during her high school years, they vow that their love will last until the next summer. They will write and call often and keep themselves for only each other.

Yet when Lindsey returns the following summer, she finds that things are much different between her and Campbell even though he assures her that they are. She finds out that a girl name Ellie has a crush on Campbell even though she is aware that Lindsey and him are a couple. She is your typical flirtatious girl.

So when Lindsey returns home, Campbell spends the night with Ellie at a party troubled over his loneliness of missing Lindsey and spending another year apart and while pouring out his feelings, Ellie is only to happy to hand him beer after beer until they get drunk and sleep together. Campbell can never forgive himself for breaking his promise to Lindsey and avoids talking to her and spending more time with Ellie until she winds up pregnant and he offers the only solution he can think marry her.

After years of grieving over a lost love, Lindsey finally allows herself to fall in love with Grant and raises a family of her own, never forgetting that summer romance of so long ago. Year after year, Lindsey returns back to her beloved beach house and leaves a yearly message of love and hope with Kindred Spirit.

I received this wonderful heartwarming story, The Mailbox by Marybeth Whalen, of summer romance compliments of B & B Media Group for my honest review. This brings back those long lost feelings of first love and the hope you always had that maybe someday, you'd get the chance to recapture that once more. I would rate this book a perfect 5 out of 5 stars!

  1. I want to read this book. We always vacation at Sunset Beach, where this mailbox is located. I've never been out to the location on Bird Island, though.

    I'm sitting here with my brother in his hospital room. Thanks for stirring happy memories of my family's most recent vacation!

    Thank you, too, for your continued prayers for Jimmy. He has a long way to go, and needs healing and deliverance in every area of his life.


  2. The Mailbox sounds very interesting, you make me want to read it...
