Letter in RM
« on: January 06, 2012, 11:03:55 pm »
Hi Patty,

Just a quick note to say thank you for including Mercy's letter to Adam at the end of RM (I just reread it and it struck me again how glad I am we got to see it). Upon occasion an author will have such a letter, or a box, or something of that sort, and we never see it. While that is often best for the flow of the story (as was the case in RM; we had no place for the actual text in the story), it often also drives us reader just a little madder. So, I guess this is a long way of saying "thank you for not making me turn up on the forums several months earlier in order to shamelessly beg to see the letter."  :D

Thanks again!

 ;D well said bookworm.

I agree, was a beautiful end to an amazing book. Thought it was a great insight into Mercy as well. After everything she has been through & keeping her heart so protected, it was wonderful to see her put her feelings on paper. I think my favorite line was "How can I reduce what I feel for you to mere letters on a page?"

Thank God she survived  :D

My favourite line in the letter is
...."only failed because of the weakness of my body, not of my heart".
