Genealogy, a novel
by Mae Wood
Mae Wood is a wonderful talented author and this book is inspired. Literally, since it was inspired in hundred-year-old love letters that she inherited and discover several years later.
Ali Waller is a 33 year-old woman who is facing some doubts in her life and finds a box of long-forgotten love letters. She is obsessed about them and begins a journey that will be a self-discovering in the end. This is a book that it is best if you read it without any spoilers, you will savor the words, feelings and above all words.
It is wonderful that reading letters can still be so adventurous and imaginative since we are facing the modern world of internet and e-mails. I used to write letters to pen-pals and this book made me feel nostalgic and emotional about Ali's journey.
HOW LONG WOULD YOU WAIT FOR LOVE?

🖋 BLURB 🖋
Inspired by real, hundred-year-old love letters. My great-grandmother's name is bold across the cream envelope, now golden at the seams with age. I can't remember the last time I’ve seen graceful, purposeful handwriting with a fountain pen and not the hasty scrawl of ballpoint. Alice Hirshhorn, Astoria Hotel, Seattle Washington. “Letters to Great-grandma Alice,” I say with wonder, tracing my fingers over the faded postmark and foreign stamps. December 1915. Philippine Islands. I turn the thick envelope in my palm, slide out the tightly folded pages, and unfold the thin paper, taking care not to tear the letters that were important enough to keep for a century. My dearest Alice “Great-grandpa was in the Philippines?” I ask. “Oh no. Not your great-grandfather,” answers Grammie, her eyes twinkling with her mother’s
secrets. “Elliott.” ~~~ At thirty-three and with her future unclear, Ali Waller finds her way home again. A box of long-forgotten love letters written to her great-grandmother holds the unlikely key to Ali finding her new path. As she tracks down the letter writer and his descendants, Ali learns the magic of love, hope, and resilience. Told by three characters, and across century and an ocean, Genealogy is an enchanting story about love and loss, taking chances, and embracing the surprises that life brings.

🖋 BIO 🖋
Professional sassypants and novelist, Mae Wood has been a bookworm her entire life. She loves cheeses, complicated crafts that she'll start but never complete, and puns.
A while ago Mae decided that she needed to give up the fear that she couldn't write "great literature" and write what she wants to read. And she wants romance. And laughter. And real life. She wants heroines who are brave. Brave enough to be themselves and brave enough to fall in love. She wants men who are strong and kind. Mae is married, and has two darling children and an old dog who naps at her feet while she writes. Keep in touch with Mae and find bonus content at her website — www.maewood.com
