Yours Truly, Thomas
For three years, Penny Ercanbeck has been opening other people's mail.
Dead ends are a reality for clerks at the dead letter office, and she dreams of something more--a bit of intrigue, perhaps a taste of romance. When she comes across a letter from a brokenhearted man to his one true love, it becomes her mission to place this lost letter into the hands of its intended recipient.
But when Penny's undertaking leads her to the intriguing man who touched her soul with his words, everything grows more complicated. She wants to find the rightful owner of the letter, and yet . . . she finds herself caring--perhaps too much--for the one who wrote it.

Rachel Fordham is the author of The Hope of Azure Springs. She started writing when her children began begging her for stories at night.

She lives with her husband and children on an island in the state of Washington.
