Book Review: The Note

I just finished this book this afternoon.

The Note by Angela Hunt

En route from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Tampa International, Flight 848 bursts into flames and crashes into Tampa Bay. All 261 passengers and crew are killed. For one week, newspaper columnist Peyton MacGruder and her fellow reporters cover one of the nation's worst air disasters in years with overwhelming and numbed emotions.
Then a woman Peyton's never met gives her a plastic bag that has washed up behind her house. The bag contains a note, almost certainly from the doomed flight, with a simple yet wrenching message:

                                                        I love you. All is forgiven. 

Combing through the passenger list to find the victims whose children's names begin with T, Peyton is determined to deliver the note to its proper owner. A quest which will prove as important to Peyton's own life as to the mysterious T.

This book was very good and an easy read. I had read one other book by this author which ended up to be a bit on the weird side, but this book was quite different from that one. The outcome is surprising and a few parts nearly moistened my eyes. A very good read that I would recommend to others.
