Return To Sender
At seventeen, Rosalind “Lin” Townsend found herself pregnant and alone. Her deeply religious father threw her out of the house, and Nick Pemberton, her baby’s father, refused to marry her. Yet even at the lowest point in her life, Lin vowed to succeed on her own terms, and to give her son, Will, all the love and happiness she’d been denied.
Nineteen years later, Lin has made good on her promises, and Will is about to start his freshman year at NYU. But when Lin visits New York with Will, she crosses paths with the one man she thought she’d never see again—Nick Pemberton, now a millionaire CEO, and the man who sent back all her letters unopened. Seeing him fills Lin with anger, and she resolves to right the wrong he did to Will. If she succeeds, like she has with everything else, the cost of revenge may be the loss of a bright new future. . .
This is going to be a pretty quick review because I do not have a lot of positive things to say about this story. I am sure that it is a good fit for some readers but it just was not for me. I would rather let the reader make their own decision but I will leave you with some general observations. Return To Sender was a book that while I enjoyed the overall story idea felt very frustrated with all of the characters throughout the entire story. I just felt that all of the characters were selfish and well just pretty horrible at different points of the story. The story is pretty disjoined and well there are a lot of parts that just don’t add up right to me. There are story lines that just appear to be unrelated and make the story a flop for me. Don’t get me wrong Fern Michaels had good writing skills and that is demonstrate but this story was a flop for me.
