Letters to My Future Husband

We rated this book:


At age five, Sophie isn’t too keen on a future with a man other than her dad. So, he suggests that she write letters to her future husband. They evolve a bit as she gets older, and for some time are addressed directly to her crush, Hanno. When she “grows up,” though, she largely forgets about those letters. Sophie also tries to forget about Hanno because he isn’t someone she can trust with her heart. In fact, kissing him when she runs into him as a young woman traveling in Italy, of all places, embarrasses her, in part because it is witnessed by another, more suitable young man. She and Peter have chemistry, too, but how long-lasting could that be given the circumstances?

Ten years later, Sophie is dating a good guy, and working at a great job in New York. When she comes home for Christmas, she is shocked to see Peter. Their chemistry is still there. But, can she let herself give him a chance to be that future husband?

This is a cute book with some enjoyable characters and interactions. Some of its plot elements feel forced, but it’s fun, nonetheless. It’s written for a Mormon audience, so some of its references to beliefs and “cultural elements” might not be entirely clear for those not familiar with them.
