Allison felt like she'd stepped into a fairy tale when she married widower Burke Caldwell. But after less than a year of marriage, he's become removed and distant. His friends see Allison as little more than a trophy wife, his only daughter regards her as the enemy. With everyone so devoted to the memory of Burke's first wife, Kate, how can Allison possibly compete? Then a harrowing car crash leaves Burke badly injured. But it becomes achingly clear that the woman Burke wants by his side is the wife he lost ... No longer able to dismiss the power Kate still holds, Allison can't resist reading a trove of hidden letters from Kate to Burke. What she discovers sets her mind reeling. The letters give Allison an enlightening window into her husband's heart. But will she have the courage to put aside her own fears, and grab hold of a love as big and bold as the man she once dared to marry?

Letters from Peaceful Lane is a wonderful novel of healing and unexpected strength. Allison is still struggling to fit in as the wife of Burke Caldwell, a successful man more than ten years her senior. While Burke's friends and daughter think of Allison as his trophy wife, Allison struggles to prove to them that she is deeply in love with the man - and to move away from the shadow of Kate, her husband's late first wife. When Burke is nearly killed in an accident, Allison is determined to prove her worth, especially after finding a pile of letters from Kate to Burke. As she reads through each letter, she draws strength from Kate's words - her wisdom and her flaws alike. With her husband's business in danger, Burke himself growing distant, and a step-daughter who despises her, Allison must fight to claim back her family and her future.
A fast-paced book that will have you rooting for the main character, Letters from Peaceful Lane addresses heartbreak and misunderstandings, while also proving that love is worth fighting for. Allison's courage in the face of daunting odds and her determination to stand by her husband even when the going gets rough, is both admirable and inspiring. Romantic, touching, and suspenseful with a satisfying ending (although there are a few loose ends that were abruptly cut off), this book leaves me wanting more of the New Americana series!
