Publisher's Summary

Can a stack of long-hidden love letters from a WWII war hero inspire a heartbroken woman to love again?

Reeling from a bitter divorce, Adrienne Carter abandons Chicago and retreats to the sun, sand, and beauty of Southern Florida, throwing herself into the restoration of a dilapidated old Victorian beach house. Early into the renovations, she discovers a tin box hidden away in the attic that reveals the emotional letters from a WWII paratrooper to a young woman who lived in the house more than a half-century earlier.

The old letters - incredibly poetic and romantic - transcend time, and they arouse in Adrienne a curiosity that leads her to track down the writer of the letters. William "Pops" Bryant is now an old man living in a nearby town with his handsome but overprotective grandson, Will. As Adrienne begins to unravel the secrets of the letters (and the Bryants), she finds herself not yet willing to give up entirely on love.

    "Great, sweet read"

    What a sweet story. This book was able to keep my attention with the story line while at the same time keeping me intrigued. Since I have family that fought in wars past, the historical part of the book was really sentimental and parts made me want to cry. Heroes aren’t just big names, they are people we meet in our everyday lives, and Heather Burch brought that back to our attention. I definitely give this book two thumbs up.

    "Letters tell the story"

    One Lavender Ribbon is an easy book to listen to. The narrator is pleasant and handles different voices well. The story is a romantic fiction, involving several characters whose lives and lies have woven them together in a typical romantic fiction style. I liked the story, the twists of storyline and the resolution.

    "A real page turner"

    Interesting characters with good plot. Dealt well with the long lasting effects of trauma and the difficulty of overcoming those effects. Reminds us of the need to take chances.

    Story
    "story of persent day love & love from the past"

    Wonderful love story with a connection to WW11 and a present day love story. The writting is a little uneven in spots, but when it is good it is very good. There is family interaction and a wonderful sub-plot giving accolades and understanding to WW11 vets. I really enjoyed the tenderness of th character, Pops.

I belong to a book group and we often" Listen" to the books we have selected for the month while using a paper copy for the discussion notes. It really enhances the quality of the story.

    Story
    "Beautiful Old Fashioned Romance"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent book. It is so refreshing to find a modern author that does not have to rely on bad language, violence, or steamy sex scenes to carry the story along.
    The plot concerns a young woman who finds a box of old love letters when she is renovating an old house .Intrigued by the letters she sets out to find the author,a WW2 veteran living in a nearby town with his devoted handsome grandson .The book is full of likable characters and believable situations all set in a delightful beach town in Florida.

    The narration was first rate and I will certainly look for more books by this author.
    Thanks Audible for making this available.
