I have read all of Joanna Davidson Politano's novels. I believe "The Love Note" is the best so far. As you read you can feel the atmosphere of the times. The heroine takes a love letter she found back to the place from which it came, setting off a whole series of heart-breaking/heart-warming events. This is the first time in a long time I have taken the time to copy down important/inspirational passages. Joanna's prose is so unique. At the same time, she describes her wonderful characters with all their fears and flaws. You find yourself rooting for all the characters that, as their lives are touched by this healing person, they will be touched and changed for the better. God is a strong presence throughout this story as He is throughout our stories. Joanna restores faith and hope to the reader for this day and time.
I am looking forward to "A Midnight Dance". I have a feeling that will be her best novel yet. ( )

This novel is extremely compelling. Willa is at a crossroads. She passionately desires to become a doctor, following in her father’s footsteps, but is continually thwarted by rejections from medical schools due to gender, and her own father’s pressure for her to marry instead. The love note she finds expresses a kind of love that she has not experienced in the tepid courtships her father has sanctioned, and it fascinates her. When her father makes a bargain with her on the education vs. marriage question based on her successfully accomplishing a nursing assignment, she surprises everyone by choosing a position at Crestwicke, looking after a difficult and demanding matriarch. Her motive is to uncover the secrets of the letter. Through a series of misadventures, it passes from hand to hand, and since it contains no names, each person finding it assumes it was meant for them, and it has a profound effect on each.
The story is rather complicated. There are many characters, and the reader is thrown into the midst of the story with little background, choosing to expose layers as the story progresses. This can at times be confusing. But sticking with it to the surprising end is very rewarding indeed.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ( )

I was first introduced to Joanna Davidson Politano, an author whose prose you will never get enough of, when our book club picked Lady Jayne Disappears for our monthly read. Many of us were skeptical because we had never picked a debut author before to read. We had to take our hats off to this outstanding author whose debut read like a seasoned pro. Now we wait in anticipation of her next work of art.

This brings me to Joanna Davidson Politano’s newest great read. The book rating world only allows a rating maximum of 5 stars, however, The Love Note, in my opinion, deserves a mega million more, and this is why:
1. It’s uniqueness. Joanna gives us the insight of ~A scientist’s observations on love quote at the beginning of each chapter. I tried to pick a favorite, but could not, as they all were a favorite in a different
2. The actual love note which touches each character who reads it, including myself, in a very different way, and the chaos it causes.
3. The mysteries, yes, I said mysteries. Some created by the love note, some surrounding the individuals within Crestwicke Manor.
4. Willa Duvall’s interaction with everyone. My favorite were her conversations with Aunt Maisie. I wish I had had someone in my life when I was Willa’s age like Aunt Maisie to give me this advice, as it would have saved me a lot of heartache. “Make your heart a deep well of the Almighty by saturating yourself in his presence, and your words will come out drenched in him no matter what you say. I can promise you, no matter how many brilliant things you have to say, he has better ones.”
5. The ending of which is awesome I will not utter a word about.
My list of reasons why this book deserves so many stars actually is endless, so I recommend to everyone who reads Historical Christian Romance, with Mystery and Suspense give The Love Note a try you will not be disappointed.

My hat goes off to you again Joanna for taking me on such a wonderful enjoyable journey. Looking forward to next year’s journey, A Midnight Dance.

I received a complimentary copy (or ARC) of this book from Revell Publishing via NetGalley. I was under no obligation to write a review, and all opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. ( )

A single, unsigned love letter wreaks havoc as it makes its way to different residents of Crestwicke Manor. Some are encouraged and enraptured by the words while others are enraged by them. And at the center of this is Willa Duvall—intelligent in ways of medicine but somewhat naïve when it comes to love.

Something that makes a book a standout for me is when the author surprises me, and Joanna Davidson Politano does just that. Not once, but multiple times as the truth behind this note is peeled back layer by layer.

But the best thing about The Love Note is the moral of the power words wield. This book made me stop and consider whether I’m using my words to build others up or tear down, to heal and mend or to wound and scar.

A sometimes haunting, often thought-provoking, and somewhat convicting story that had me rooting for Willa to find the true desires of her heart early on.

This enchanting novel has a classical feel, reminiscent of Victorian tales. The main character's only desire is to practice medicine in a world open to men alone. Willa finds a way to achieve that goal as a nurse at Crestwicke Manor, a place she has known all her life. This task will test all of her wit and push her faith to another level. She also searches for the owner of a lost love note found inside a desk she acquired years ago. What will Crestwicke Manor hold for her, and will she be the healer it needs?

I recommend this book of depth into the human condition, strength in God, and courage over despair. I received a copy from Net Galley and Revell. I did not gain compensation for this review. All thoughts are my own. #TheLoveNote #NetGalley ( )
