The Love Letter By Rachel Hauck

Book Description:  When Chloe is given a peek at the script for an epic love story, she decides to take her destiny into her own hands and request an audition for the lead female role, Esther Kingsley. The compelling tale, inspired by family lore and a one-page letter from the colonial ancestor of scriptwriter Jesse Gates, just might break her out of this career-crippling rut. Jesse would rather write about romance than live through it after his past relationship ended in disaster. But once on-set together, the chemistry between Jesse and his leading lady is hard to deny.
Centuries earlier, in the heart of the Revolutionary War, Hamilton Lightfoot and Esther Longfellow wrote their saga off the silver screen. Esther’s Loyalist father opposes any relationship with Hamilton, but Esther must face her beloved father’s disapproval and the dangers of war in order to convince Hamilton of their future together. Hamilton has loved Esther for years, and on the eve of battle pens the love letter she’s always wanted—something straight from the heart.

My Thoughts:  It's been quite awhile since I've read a novel penned by Rachel Hauck.  I was excited to see this new story.
The Love Letter begins with Chloe auditioning for a part as the lead female, Esther, in a love story of two star crossed lovers during the Revolutionary War era.
As Chloe and Jesse take to the set to act in this love story their chemistry makes for a great plot.
Of course this means that the plot of this story switches back and forth from present to past.  Not too bad but a little distracting when the reader is involved in one of the couples' story.
Not everything is coming up daisies as Chloe and Jesse soon discover.
As Esther and Hamilton found that a relationship requires love and sacrifice so are Jesse and Chloe finding out that a true love requires, well more than love.
An interesting story with real to life characters.
A wonderful love story for a summer's day or a night with the stars.
