Liz Lyons and Jack Richardson have spent years apart, with Liz raising their son Rex to adulthood on the island, Atlantica. After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Jack brings his family to the States, to both protect them and to prepare Rex for taking over the business interests someday. Liz and Jack soon find themselves with their old feelings rekindled, but Rex doesn’t acclimate so well. However, Rex finds a way to bring a new viewpoint to Jack’s business.
Roberta Grime’s book “Letter from Money” continues the 'Letters from Love' series. While I’ve really enjoyed other books by this author, this series hasn’t caught my interest. It’s a little too out-there for my tastes, and just never really intrigued me. But I can see it appealing to fans of a simpler life and being connected with the world in a greener and more spiritual way.
Although Liz Lyons and Jack Richardson never stopped loving one another, their lives have taken them in different directions. Liz remains in Atlantica, a tiny island far removed from Western civilization, while Jack has returned to New York to look after his business interests. When Jack brings his family to the United States in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, old feelings resurface. They give their marriage another chance.
The couple's son, Rex, doesn't adapt well to the move. Having spent the first twenty-three years of his life in a society that doesn't acknowledge even the concept of ownership, he is stunned to find himself the sole heir to a fortune in the tens of billions. He is appalled by the spiritual isolation and lack of personal autonomy at the core of American existence.
As Rex learns to cope with his new life, he brings a fresh perspective to Jack's business affairs, and eventually to Jack's whole worldview. With Rex as the driving force, Jack begins to use his wealth to try to revitalize and restore America. Can the spiritual wounds of a bitterly divided nation be healed through the efforts of one family?
Letters from Love is a seven-novel saga that tells five fresh and engaging love stories. Spanning almost five hundred years, the series will give you a new appreciation for your own glorious potential.
